The all-new Chevrolet Blazer EV is rolling out. It will be a 2024 model year. And it’s come a long, long way.
First hitting the market in 1969, to say the nameplate has come a long way is an understatement.
Because that Blazer was a short-wheelbase truck with a factory cab – more or less. But a little more than five decades later and Blazer has experienced a transformation.
The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer electric vehicle is a super-stylish, zero-tailpipe emission, midsize SUV people hauler. And it’s capable of doing some serious hauling. Clocking a zero to 60 mph time in under 4 seconds. As estimated by Chevy.
Overview – What We Know So Far
Aside from being quick and super-stylish, Chevy’s let a lot of info out. While there’s on the way. Here’s what we’ve got to date.
For the first time that we’re aware of, an EV is being released with any drive configuration. Including front-wheel, rear-wheel or all-wheel drive options!
GM is estimating up to 320 miles of range on a full charge. Plus nearly 30 inches of digital display across the cockpit.
Chevrolet is offering a trim for every price range and associated feature set. Providing ample customization of your Chevy Blazer EV. Including push-button-free auto start. Plus automatic lift gate access. One-pedal and Super Cruise hands-free driving.
Worth noting, but not available to the public, is the Police Pursuit Vehicle. That’s taking the top-level SS trim to a civic-duty level.

Each trim has a slightly different rollout plan. So it’s best to connect with a dealer. And that’s to identify and order your Blazer EV. As well as determine exactly when it will be ready.
Electric Motor, Power, And Performance
While not all the stats are being reported by Chevy for each of the trims. The bow tie brand is releasing some impressive numbers for the 2024 Blazer EV.
The top trim SS, Super Sport, trim delivers 557 horsepower with 648 pound-feet of torque. And that’s with AWD. Additionally, it’s the SS trim that times 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.
Braking from that acceleration is just as important. So the SS Chevy Blazer EV adds Brembo performance brakes in the front.
Here’s one of the truly interesting areas of Blazer EV. Power can come from anywhere. It’s being based on trim.
- 1LT – FWD only.
- 2LT – FWD standard, AWD optional
- RS – FWD or RWD standard, AWD optional.
- SS – AWD only.
The all-new Chevrolet Blazer EV also offers Regen Braking. And that converts kinetic energy from the vehicle’s forward momentum into electricity. Helping to maximize range.
While also allowing one-pedal driving. Whereas, when engaged, Blazer EV can come to a complete stop by fully releasing the accelerator pedal.
Range and Charging – 2024 Chevy Blazer EV
Your driving distance on a single charge varies by trim. For example, that 320-mile range comes with the RS trim. While the higher-performing SS trim delivers 290 miles on a full charge.
Then the 1LT and 2LT trims provide 247 and 293 miles of range respectively.
So all this range comes from different levels of charging. There is 11.5 kW level 2 charging and up to 190 kW public DC fast charging.
Blazer EVs have the capability to fast charge through DC high-speed units. Adding 78 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
A cool feature that caught our attention is a Blazer EV charging feature. Where grill LED lights pulse at an increasing rate the closer the battery gets to being fully charged.
2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV – What’s It Look Like?
Blazer was reintroduced as a fuel combustion vehicle in 2018. Sending a bit of shock through the Chevy-guy set because it was taking styling cues from Camaro more than anything else.
And the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV does the same. But adding a hint of Corvette with a dash of electric/futuristic design. A wide stance and athletic from every angle.
Chevy’s Ultim Platform is the name of its EV architecture. It’s a ground-up reinvention of vehicle design. Placing the EV battery under the length and width of the vehicle.
This allows for a lower center of gravity while delivering better handling. But it makes it hard to tell the ground clearance of the vehicle.
Chevy hasn’t announced exterior dimensions so we’re uncertain about ground clearance until it does.
Inside The All-new Chevy Blazer EV
Without being able to crawl through Blazer EV. We did snap some pictures of the Blazer EV’s interior while it was at the 2022 LA Auto Show.
And the SS trim was on display. Naturally, it appears quite sporty. With a fun-looking cockpit. Inviting drivers to enjoy the EV Super Sport experience.
Featuring a huge digital display through two screens. And what appears to be a logical and user-friendly blend of knobs, buttons, and touchscreen controls.
Topping it all off is a thick-looking flat-bottom steering wheel. Seemingly begging drivers to put Blazer through the paces.
Overall space looks ample in the all-new Blazer EV. Because while it’s midsize, it’s still only a 2 row. Which always leaves plenty of legroom for both passenger rows.
Infotainment And Safety Technology
Nearly 30 inches of digital screens assist drivers in transitioning to the electric vehicle experience.
That includes the main infotainment touchscreen atop the center stack. Measuring 17.7 inches diagonally, it cannot be missed upon entering the Blazer EV from any door.
Drivers view another 11-inch diagonal monitor in the dash, the former home of analog instrumentation.
Plus there’s a hands-free power liftgate in the rear. And buttonless start with a driver with a key fob entering the cockpit.
Over The Air Updates
And taking a nod from Tesla, Chevy Blazer will offer over-the-air updates for its new EV.
Ultifi is General Motors’ new software platform enabling features, apps, and services. Overtime as they become available.
Additionally, Blazer EV will offer what Chevy’s calling the first true hands-free driver-assistance tech. That’s Super Cruise.
It allows drivers to travel ‘no hands’ on compatible roads throughout the United States and Canada.
Chevrolet offers its latest driver-assistance technologies in Blazer EV as well.
This includes automatic reverse braking and advanced park assist. Plus Chevy’s Safety Assist. Which is a suite of features helping drivers avoid accidents through additional safety technologies. Including automatic emergency braking and forward collision alert. Plus front pedestrian braking and following distance indicator. Also, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and IntelliBeam.
All-New 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV
The midsize all-electric 2-row SUV from Chevrolet is taking to bow-tie brand to the next electric level.
From the Ultimum Platform to the Ultifi software and all the features and tech being packed into both. Blazer seems poised for yet another successful decade.
