Why are we excited about the new Chevy Blazer EV

Chevrolet We’re all equipped with three new electric vehicles — the Silverado EV, Equinox EV, and Blazer EV. But the most exciting of these three is the Blazer EV because it will also include Chevy’s first electric vehicle with the “SS” badge.

We just arrived A clear view of how the sporty Blazer SS EV looksAnd it’s athletic as it is. Chevy confirmed on the Blazer EV that it uses Ultium battery and motor technology. While other details are scarce, we have strong reasons to believe that the Blazer EV will have strong similarities in various aspects to the Cadillac Lyriq.

The standard Blazer EV models are likely to go against the likes of the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Tesla Model Y. The Blazer SS EV will take the fight to the likes of the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT and Tesla Model Y performance and even against the best likes of the Audi e-tron and Jaguar I- PACE.

The Chevy Blazer EV is likely to be a light, sporty and affordable version of the Cadillac Lyric. And it will come as a powerful SS too!

The Chevy Blazer EV will get GM’s BEV3 platform and Ultium technology

The upcoming Chevy Blazer EV will be fully equipped with smart Ultium battery technology. A GM BEV3 skateboard platform will be used which has battery packs placed on the board, between the axles. This helps General Motors create a dynamic chassis that can be used for any type of electric vehicle chassis. So, technically speaking, the foundations of the Blazer EV have a far-fetched relationship with those used in the crazy Hummer EV!

This chassis will be paired with GM’s Ultium battery and engine technology for greater flexibility in powertrain layouts. The base base will likely have a single-engine RWD design, with things made powerful and interesting the higher we get to the cutting table. We expect the Blazer EV to provide more than 300 miles of commendable driving range.

The Blazer EV will be the first electric Chevrolet to wear the SS badge

But the most surprising revelation so far is the story of the ‘SS’. The Blazer EV will be available on the performance-focused SS model, which also marks the first time this iconic badge has been used in an EV. We have a strong hunch that the Blazer lineup will have performance numbers very similar to Caddy Lyriq. This is logical.

The Lyriq’s base RWD model produces 340 horsepower which seems like the right kind of horse for a very good looking Blazer EV, too. For the Blazer SS EV, we expect it to share the AWD design with the 500-hp Lyriq. We expect the Chevy Blazer SS EV to run from 0 to 60 mph in about 4 seconds which does perfect justice to the sporty badges.

The Chevy Blazer EV’s interior will take great pieces from the Silverado EV and Equinox EV

The interior of the Chevy Blazer EV remains a mystery. But with new images of the Equinox EV and Silverado EV, it’s safe to assume that the all-electric Blazer will share a lot of interior design and technology cues with these two EVs. Most likely, the dashboard will be dominated by a huge touch screen in the middle at an angle towards the driver.

This infotainment unit will be housed in an enclosure that places the digital instrument cluster next to it, in a single elongated display panel. Just like the Silverado EV, we might see a shaft-mounted gear selector and a rotary dial for the infotainment system. Higher-spec models will include the SuperCruise feature that will likely be offered on the high-spec Blazer EV bezels.

Expect the seat layout to be very similar to that of the Cadillac Lyric. While the standard bezels will flaunt a plain interior, the Blazer SS EV will eliminate it with a two-tone red and black layout, similar to the one pictured above. The Blazer will be tech heavy, with features like the GM OnStar system and a camera-based rearview mirror on board.

Chevy Blazer EV looks amazing and sporty

We excel at the Blazer EV’s sharp design language. The gas-powered Chevy Blazer was already known to flaunt an impressive design language among a sea of ​​enhanced crossovers. And the sharp appeal seems to be spreading to the world of electricity as well. It looked pretty low-key for a crossover, but we’d expect it to have a lot to do with the cinematic angle.

But either way, the front end is intimidating to look at, and the grille gives off a very aggressive look. The LED DRL is spread across the front, and the tie also gets an illuminated border. Another great design feature is the fin-like treatment that appears between the front door and the fender.

This ventilated area also cleverly conceals the charging port, which is hidden in plain sight behind a retractable cover. The shoulder line has a sweeping angle, and things are fairly interesting in the rear third quarter, especially near the B- and C-pillars. The Blazer EV is sure to be an eye-catcher on the roads. And the SS, more athletic!

The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV will be officially revealed to the world on July 18, 2022. Chevy aims to bring this bold electric vehicle to dealerships by the spring of 2023. Pricing details are still subtle, but if our speculation is correct about the Cadillac connection, expect pricing to come true. 2024 Blazer EV in the $50,000 – $55,000 range.
