2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV debuts with 557 hp
A new crossover EV is no breaking news. But when a brand uses a legendary name for a new product, the world gives it a second glance. Chevy did this with the Blazer crossover, and now it gets an EV version. The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV arrives with up to 557 hp and with front-, rear- and all-wheel drive versions.
The Blazer has been around in the modern car world for some time now. But the EV takes it into the future. The design flaunts modern cuts and creases, like the IC-engined Blazer but it is no way the same. The front end is detailed by a closed-out grill with an illuminated Chevy logo and is flanked by LED lights. The wheel sizes can go up to 22-inches, in the top SS trim. Speaking of trims, you can have your 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV in 1LT, 2LT, RS, or SS trim.
The center point in the interior is a colossal screen. This unit measures 17.7-inches and pairs with an 11-inch display that plays the role of a driver information display. The top dog trims, the RS and SS, add flat-bottom steering wheels, specially designed HVAC vents, heated and ventilated front seats, and unique upholstery.
On the tech front, you can add in GM’s “Super Cruise” driver assistance systems. As standard, it offers the Chevy Safety Assist suite of safety tech. This includes front pedestrian braking, lane-keep assist with departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and a lot more. The Blazer EV also gets a keyless start system. There is no push button to start the vehicle. If it detects the key, the driver can just push the brake pedal after closing the door and the Blazer EV is ready to go.
A lot of technical details about the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV are yet to come out. But we do know that it will have a range-topping 557 hp output, which should make it a hoot to drive. This will be accompanied by a very impressive 879 Nm of torque. The Blazer EV will have something called Wide Open Watts (WOW) mode that allows it to use the most out of it to rush from 0 to 100 kph in just over 4 seconds. The highest range offered by the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV line-up is 515 kilometres. The Blazer EV will also come in front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive variants. It will also have a Police version.
The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV will support DC charging speeds up to 190 kW. AC charging is limited to 11.5 kW. With all this under its belt, the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV can stand out among the raging sea of electric crossovers.
