Chevy’s latest all-electric SUV, the Blazer EV, has officially rolled off the assembly line at GM’s plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico. This new EV is gearing up for mass production and should start hitting the roads in the US this summer. With a variety of trims ranging from $45K to $66K, the Blazer EV got options for days.
At CES 2022, GM unveiled the Chevy Blazer EV, an electric version of Chevy’s arguably most iconic SUV nameplate.
Blazer EV comes in four trims: the 1LT, 2LT, RS, and Chevy’s first fully electric performance model, the SS. Chevy’s also releasing a police version based on the SS for police fleets across the country.
Like Chevy’s other EVs, the Blazer EV built on their Ultium platform made specifically for electric vehicles. The design’s all new and way different than the usual. It’s got a closed-off grille, a two-tone color scheme, and looks more like a crossover. The charge port’s on the front fender.
The inside’s decked out with soft-touch materials, vents that look like turbochargers, a huge 17.7-inch touchscreen, and an 11-inch instrument cluster. The RS and SS get a flat-bottom steering wheel, heated and cooled seats, and ambient lighting.
Chevy hasn’t released specs yet, but says all models will have independent front and rear suspension for a “seriously smooth and responsive ride” The SS tops the range with 557 horsepower, 877 pound-feet of torque, all-wheel drive, and a Wide Open Watts mode that can hit 60 mph in under four seconds flat. The SS also gets high-performance Brembo brakes up front.
