Chevrolet confirmed an electric version of the blazer in January, and on Monday we finally got to see it for a tweet from GM CEO Mary Barr.
The tweet read: “Allow me to share a glimpse of the new heChevrolet Blazer # EV.
I can’t wait until July 18, when we will share the details with the world. “

After several teasers, we get to see the blazer in its full glory. The image shows an SS model, which GM confirmed in March. A new vehicle unrelated to the current petrol-powered Blazer, the Blazer EV gets styling hints from the car that, in turn, was inspired by the Chevy Camaro. It has a similar grill and the body plays a similar coke-bottle shape. However, close more squares behind the roof. A gill-like design on the back of the front wheel will act as a charging port and, based on the previous video teaser, will pop out instead of opening – somewhat like a Cadillac lyric charging door.
The Blazer is part of 20 new electric vehicles that GM plans to launch in the North American market by the end of 2023.
The blazer is expected to use GM’s Ultium battery and powertrain architecture that will serve everything from Cadillac Lyric to GMC Hummer EV to Chevrolet Silverado EV. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
No glasses for power and range are available yet, but we expect a range of at least 300 miles in at least one version. The Blazer SS will probably have more power and less range. The current Blazer does not have an SS model, which Chevrolet saves for a higher performance version of its car, although it does offer an RS version with an SS-like appearance but without additional performance. An Equinox EVO is coming, probably without such a glamorous design.
We will learn the statistics of 18 July 2024 Blazer EV. Stay tuned.
