Chevy Unveils 2024 Blazer EV Lineup: Range, Pricing, and Delivery Dates Revealed
Chevrolet has officially begun deliveries of the anticipated 2023 Chevrolet Blazer EV, introducing a new electrifying presence in the automaker's lineup. The first wave of the Blazer EV rollout includes the all-wheel-drive (AWD) 2LT variant, an upscale model with a starting price of $56,715.
The 2LT AWD offers an array of high-end features, providing buyers with a premium EV experience. Notable features include a generous 17.7-inch touchscreen, heated seats, adaptive cruise control, and a 360-degree camera system - an impressive array of amenities designed for optimal convenience and comfort.
In addition to the 2LT AWD, Chevrolet has unveiled the sportier RS AWD model. Priced at $60,215, the RS AWD adds aesthetic flair and enhanced driver engagement with additional styling elements and a race-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel.
Despite their feature differentiation, both the 2LT AWD and RS AWD offer an impressive EPA-rated range of 279 miles, assuring potential buyers of considerable distance coverage on a single charge.
Chevrolet has already mapped out the future growth of the Blazer EV family. In early 2024, GM plans to launch more budget-friendly front-wheel-drive (FWD) models, such as the FWD LT, which will likely have a price tag around $45,000. At the luxury end of the spectrum, the Blazer SS EV, scheduled for a spring 2024 debut, is expected to be priced at $65,595, featuring a powerful 564-hp AWD powertrain.
The Blazer EV RS AWD will hit dealerships as early as August 2023, with the RS RWD and 2LT AWD models following suit with production slated to commence later in the year. The 2024 release will introduce FWD variants of the RS and 2LT to the market.
An added advantage for U.S. buyers, the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer EV lineup qualifies for the full $7,500 federal tax credit, potentially reducing the base price to $37,495 for eligible customers.
Despite the somewhat delayed introduction of the Blazer SS and a somewhat perplexing pricing structure, GM remains optimistic about ramping up its Ultium-based EV production in the latter half of the year, which incorporates models such as the Chevy Bolt EV/EUV. Chevrolet's ambitious rollout plan for the Blazer EV range signals the automaker's commitment to fostering the growth of electric mobility in the market.
