DETROIT – General Motors on Monday revealed its latest electric Chevrolet Blazer that is expected to compete against the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Tesla Model Y crossover EVs.

The vehicle marks a very important launch for the Detroit automaker in attracting attention and more mainstream consumers to EVs.

The 2024 Blazer EV is predicted to reach in dealer showrooms starting next summer, in accordance with GM. Starting pricing will range from about $45,000 for an entry-level Blazer to $66,000 for a “SS” performance variant that can produce as much as 557 horsepower and 648 pounds-foot of torque.

GM estimates the crossover can be able to 0-60 mph in lower than 4 seconds, comparable to the Model Y Performance and Mach-E at about 3.5 seconds.

Features and capabilities of the Blazer EV will range based on the 4 vehicle models. GM expects the electrical range of the vehicle – a very important number for EV owners – to be between 247 miles and 320 miles, based on the variant. The corporate can even offer a variant for police use based on the SS model, officials said.

The brand new Blazer EV can be produced at GM’s plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, where the normal Blazer is assembled.

While the brand new EV shares the Blazer name and plant with a conventional internal combustion engine model, the vehicles are completely different in development, performance and appears. The EV is predicated on GM’s latest Ultium platform, which is predicted to underpin the automaker’s next-generation electric vehicles.

“It’s Blazer by name … and the vibe of Blazer, but there’s nothing shared from these two vehicles,” said Chevrolet Vice President Scott Bell during a media event.

The Blazer EV can be able to front-, rear- or all-wheel-drive, depending on the model. Like the outside, the inside of the vehicle is different than its traditional sibling and features a driver-focused cockpit with a 17.7-inch-diagonal center touchscreen and an 11-inch-diagonal drive information screen.

The Blazer EV is predicted to be Chevy’s fourth electric model when it arrives in showrooms next 12 months. The brand currently sells the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV with GM’s older battery technology. Limited sales of the electrical Silverado are scheduled to start out next spring. The automaker can also be expected to unveil an electrical Equinox that GM has said will start around $30,000.

Starting pricing for the normal 2022 Blazer with an internal combustion engine ranges from about $35,000 to $43,000.
