GM reveals pricing and range figures for 2024 Chevy Blazer EV

Chevrolet, a unit of US automobile major General Motors, has finally revealed the price, range and other specs of the Chevy Blazer EV, which is expected to start reaching dealers as soon as later this month. At CES 2022, GM had announced that its Chevrolet brand would transform its biggest SUV’s nameplate, from the Blazer then Blazer EV. At the time, the Chevy Blazer EV Super Sport (SS) trim, the first Chevrolet EV with a performance trim, was shown by the manufacturer. Now, the automobile giant has revealed that the all-electric SUV will be made available in a total of four trims, including 1LT, 2LT, RS, SS, in addition to a police pursuit vehicle (PPV) edition.

Prices will start at around $45,000 (1LT trim), and continue to soar to reach more than $70,000 for the performance SS version.

More precisely, the 2024 Blazer EV in 2LT AWD trim will come with a price tag of $56,715 and it will deliver an EPA-estimated range of up to 279 miles. The RS AWD and RS RWD models will cost $60,2015 and $61,790, respectively. These two models will offer range of 279 and 320 miles.

At the time of the launch of the Chevy Blazer EV, the 2LT model was expected to cost just around $47,595, while the RS model was expected to cost $51,995. However, those price tags were reported for the FWD versions.

The 2LT AWD variant will be the least expensive variant as it will be available with a starting price tag of $56,715. For those who qualify for the U.S. federal government’s tax credit of $7500, this variant will cost less than $50,000.

Initially, the Blazer EV SS trim was expected to launch by the end of this year but the American brand declared earlier this month that this trim wouldn’t come until spring 2024. On Monday this week, the company revealed that series production of this trim would start next spring. The PPV version of the EV is scheduled to be rolled out in the first quarter of next year. More details on the remaining trims, including the RS FWD and 2LT FWD variants, will be disclosed ahead of their scheduled launch next year.

Detroit, Michigan-headquartered GM, the parent company of Chevrolet, has long been struggling to scale production and sales of its Ultium-based EVs. The upcoming Chevy Blazer EV is thus being seen as a ray of hope for the company’s EV business.
