Chevrolet Blazer EV Sales Paused Due to Software Problems

A new electric vehicle by General Motors (GM), Chevrolet Blazer EV sales have been temporarily suspended due to software problems. This decision comes after the vehicle experienced a malfunction on a journey from Ohio to North Carolina. Issued on a recent Friday, the stop-sale affects a small quantity of these vehicles, with around 1,000 units of the Blazer EV currently in stock across the country.

The recent Chevrolet Blazer EV sales report highlighted some technical challenges facing the vehicle. The issues primarily concern the vehicle's touchscreen and occasional problems during charging attempts at some public DC fast chargers. These problems were notably encountered by a driver whose journey ended prematurely at a rural Virginia Electrify America station.

Additionally, the Blazer EV has faced criticism from a car-buying website, which reported multiple faults with a Blazer EV purchased for evaluation. Issues included malfunctioning window switches, an infotainment display stuck in a shutdown loop, various error messages, and failures in driving functions. The website described the problems as the most significant they had ever encountered in a new car.
