2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV Pricing and Details
The mainstream midsize electric SUV market, which the Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E have had to themselves for the last couple of years, is about to get very interesting. Announced last summer, the Chevrolet Blazer EV will be shipping to dealers this August, with the first deliveries happening in early fall. The first model to arrive in dealerships will actually be one of the most popular models, the Blazer EV RS AWD, with further variations to follow in late 2023 and early 2024.
Chevrolet Blazer EV RS AWD: 279 Miles of Range
With a starting MSRP of $60,215, the Blazer RS AWD comes with a 102-kWh battery which gives this dual-motor electric SUV an estimated 279 miles of range, according to the U.S. EPA. Standard equipment on this middle trim level includes a large 17.7-inch infotainment system, 11-inch digital instrument cluster, heated seats and steering wheel, “Evotex” synthetic leather seating, wireless phone charging, and a power liftgate. Its outside is decorated with unique gloss-black styling elements including a special “grille,” 21-inch wheels, and even animated exterior lighting.
Blazer EV 2LT AWD: Sporty Exterior Trim
Arriving in late 2023, the Blazer EV 2LT AWD shares the RS model’s 102-kWh battery and its EPA-estimated 279 miles of range. Its interior includes all of the same features as the RS model, except for its flat-bottomed steering wheel, though its exterior is decidedly less fancy, with conventional LED lights and smaller wheels. Driver assistance features are the same as the RS trim level, and include adaptive cruise control, 360-degree surround vision with multiple cameras, and more. The starting MSRP for the Blazer EV 2LT AWD is $56,715.
Blazer EV RS RWD: Range Champion
Also arriving in late 2023 will be the Blazer RS RWD. Interestingly, this rear-wheel drive version is more expensive than the all-wheel drive RS, with a starting MSRP of $61,790. Thanks to its rear-wheel drive setup, range jumps from 279 to an estimated 320 miles, according to the EPA, and a Bose audio system is added to the list of standard features. Otherwise, it looks the same as the Blazer RS AWD from the outside, and shares all of its interior creature comforts and active safety systems.
Other Models to Come
Chevrolet hasn’t announced a final starting MSRP for the Blazer EV SS model, which features a unique AWD setup that produces 557 hp and 648 lb-ft of torque, enough to blast the Blazer SS to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. Intriguingly, the powertrain of the Blazer SS will also make its way into a police pursuit vehicle (PPV) model available only to law enforcement, making for a very fast, powerful, and capable electric police car.
There's no news on the base-level 1LT trim, which Chevrolet previously announced would have a starting price of around $45,000. With smaller wheels and less standard equipment, this model will be popular with families on a budget – but it shouldn’t sacrifice any of the basic goodness of the GM Ultium platform that all Blazer EVs will be built on. They will all have an extra-long wheelbase for lots of interior room. They all have a sporty, aggressive look, with wheel designs and styling elements cribbed from the Camaro and Corvette. And their huge cabins all have a modern, refined feel connected to Chevy’s iconic spots cars.
Made in the U.S., all Blazer models should qualify for up to $7,500 in federal incentives, if buyers meet the necessary qualifications.
Chevrolet Blazer EV: Charging Performance
All Blazer EVs also feature excellent charging speeds. Using a Level 2 AC charger, the Blazer EV can charge at up to 11.5 kW – a step up from most mainstream EVs – and up to 190 kW is possible on Level 3 DC fast chargers. GM estimates that up to 78 miles of range can be added in 10 minutes. That charging performance puts the new Blazer a step above both the Mustang Mach-E and Tesla Model Y – with similar range estimates and a newer platform.
We’re excited to see the new Blazer EV on American roads later this year, and we suspect owners will be just as excited to be behind the wheel.
