General Motors recently unveiled the Chevy Blazer EV, presenting it as a dynamic and highly expressive electric vehicle.
“Blazer EV is the complete package with style, performance, and technology. Available in multiple trims, colors, and battery ranges, this daring new all-electric midsize SUV is built from the ground up around the game-changing Ultium battery platform. Ultium offers flexibility in charging speeds, range, and performance — giving the sporty Blazer EV the sheer power and confidence needed to go the distance,” Chevrolet said about the car.
Chevy Blazer EV Trims
The Blazer EV comes in four trims: 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS. The base 1LT trim will be available around Winter 2024. It has a GM-estimated range of 247 miles with FWD and has an estimated MSRP starting at $44,995. The base trim comes with Standard Chevy Safety Assist, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, and IntelliBeam auto high beams.
The 2LT and RS trim will be available first by Summer 2023. The Blazer EV 2LT’s estimated MSRP will start at around $47,595. It has a GM-estimated range of 293 miles on a full charge with FWD. The 2LT trim is also available in eAWD and comes with Super Cruise and Standard Chevy Safety Assist. The RS trim’s estimated MSRP is $51,995 and has 320 miles of range with RWD. It’s also available in FWD and eAWD.
Most interesting of all is that the Blazer EV has a Super Sport (SS) trim—General Motors’ signature performance option package for limited Chevrolet vehicles. The 1961 Impala was the first vehicle to have an SS package option.
The Blazer EV’s SS trim has a GM-estimated 290 miles of range with Performance AWD. The legacy automaker states it can do 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds with Wide Open Watts Performance Mode. The SS trim’s estimated MSRP is $65,995. It will be available by Fall 2023.
Blazer EV Charging
The Chevy Blazer EV has a GM-estimated range of 247-320 miles on a full charge, depending on the trim. Regen on Demand and One Pedal Driving are available for the Blazer EV, extending its range. According to Chevrolet, in a 190kW DC fast charging public charging stall, the Blazer EV can get up to 78 miles of range in 10 minutes.
Chevy offers at-home charging for the Blazer EV with a Dual Level Charge Cord. It lists Level 1 charging at 120 volts and Level 2 charging at 240 volts. The company’s MyChevrolet App with Energy Assist can help Blazer EV owners track their energy usage. Energy Assist will help drivers plan routes and find compatible public charging stations, including real-time information about available charging stalls.
