Serious range and performance features
Customers have more alternatives, and the various front-, rear-, and all-wheel-drive combinations and many unique trims, range options, and range estimates of up to 320 miles on a full charge all add to the seamless EV experience made to fit almost any lifestyle. These options include the 2LT, RS, 1LT, and the first-ever electric SS performance variant from Chevy.
Based on GM’s ground-breaking Ultium Platform, the Chevrolet Blazer EV has an athletic style that improves upon the lauded design introduced by the gas-powered Chevrolet Blazer in 2018 and performance cues drawn from the Camaro and Corvette.
The Chevy Blazer EV SS provides consumers the most full experience in the range thanks to design and engineering engineered to live up to the tradition of the renowned Super Sport performance designation.
It has a high-performance AWD propulsion system with a maximum output of 557 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of torque and a unique WOW (Wide Open Watts) mode that enables 0-60 times in under 4 seconds (based on GM estimates).
Design details of the Chevy Blazer EV
The creative, dynamic, and athletic style of the all-electric 2024 Blazer EV is combined with Chevrolet’s performance DNA to produce an expressive look unmatched in the sector.
The Ultium Platform gives each Chevy Blazer EV trim a muscular, athletic appearance with tight, convergent body lines. They suggest mobility and pronounced front-fender extractor vents pay homage to Chevy’s history in racing.
The different trimmings have personalities of their own. While the RS strikes a sharper image with a black grille and other black highlights along with standard 21-inch alloys, the LT has a monochrome design with standard 19-inch wheels.
With a distinctive front grille, a two-tone paint scheme with a black roof, and A-pillars that match the Blazer EV’s body color palette, standard 22-inch wheels, and more, the SS offers the most aggressive appearance.
With a striking, dual-element LED external lighting signature and synchronized lighting sequences that start when the driver approaches or moves away, designers enhanced the Blazer EV’s presence on the RS and SS. The effect has an illuminated Bowtie symbol on the front and a complete light bar. The lighting sequences combine these components.
While the car is charging, the front lights also indicate the level of charge. As the battery charge rises, the lighting orchestration accelerates and intensifies sequentially.
A chic cabin interior also showcases contemporary design. Many of its components, like the flat-bottom steering wheel for the RS and SS trims and the sculpted vents designed to resemble turbines, were influenced by Chevrolet’s sports vehicles and performance pedigree, much like the exterior.
The centerpiece of the interior and the control panel for the car’s infotainment system and other functions is a large, 17.7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen. The center touchscreen is complemented by a large 11-inch-diagonal color Driver Information Center in the instrument cluster.
Technology-driven and concerned with safety
The Chevy Blazer EV is equipped with the newest charging, infotainment, and driver-assistance technologies from Chevy. These technologies work in unison to provide consumers with increased convenience, comfort, and confidence when switching to an all-electric vehicle.
There is no button to press to start the Blazer EV; everything begins when the driver gets inside. With hands-free start, after shutting the door, the driver merely presses the brake pedal to get the Blazer EV moving. The hands-free start mechanism is authorized by the key fob.
Among top tech and assistance features are:
- Charge port door with powered opening.
- Route planning and navigation to charging stations: this function helps in finding and planning routes to charging stations using the MyChevy app.
- Regen Braking: this function may increase the driving range by converting the kinetic energy of the vehicle’s forward motion into electricity that is stored in the battery pack. It also incorporates one-pedal driving, which uses just the accelerator pedal to completely stop the car from moving.
- Available presence-based liftgate: when the key fob is detected by the vehicle’s rear-mounted sensors, the tailgate may conveniently open without using your hands.
- Available Super Cruise is the first truly hands-free driver assistance system in the market, enabling hands-free operation on compatible highways across the United States and Canada.
The newest driver-assistance features from Chevrolet, such as Reverse Automatic Braking and Advanced Park Assist, are also available in the Blazer EV. With Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and IntelliBeam, they complete the standard Chevy Safety Assist suite of technology.
Ultifi, GM’s innovative end-to-end vehicle software platform, is a key enabler of the Blazer EV’s technology. Software-defined features, applications, and services may be frequently and seamlessly delivered to consumers over the air because of the separation of the vehicle’s software and hardware.
Customers will be able to modify and customize their vehicles more than ever before thanks to Ultifi when new features and advancements become available over time.
Reliable performance and top SS model
The Ultium Platform, the backbone of General Motors’ EV strategy and the engine behind the company’s ambition for a world without emissions, is harnessed in the Chevy Blazer EV. The three possible drive systems—front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive—as well as the various range choices, are supported by the brand-new body architecture.
Additionally, the Ultium Platform’s low and broad proportions and the battery pack’s structural placement provide a relatively low center of gravity that improves driving stability. Independent front and rear suspensions provide great ride comfort and responsiveness regardless of the vehicle’s propulsion system.
With special features created to assist optimize the potential of the Ultium Platform, the SS brings all of the Chevy Blazer EV’s performance capabilities to their highest point.
With an 11.5 kW onboard AC charging module for both home and public charging and a high-speed DC public fast-charging capability of up to 190 kW, the Blazer EV excels in terms of charging performance. Up to 78 miles of range may be added in around 10 minutes.
Additionally, owners have access to Ultium Charge 360, General Motors’ comprehensive strategy for EV charging that aims to make the whole charging process simpler. This program gives owners access to more than 100,000 publicly accessible charging stations in the United States and Canada.
