2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV goes official with 515km of range
Chevrolet has taken the wraps off the 2024 Blazer EV for the US car market. The brand will also offer a special version of the vehicle to the police department. The car has a futuristic design and is available in four trim levels: 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS. The US-based automaker claims a driving range of 515km on a single charge.
Why does this story matter?
Chevrolet is a division of General Motors and has a rich history of 111 years as a carmaker. With changing times, the brand is now moving toward sustainable mobility via the PHEV and BEV route. It was one of the earliest automakers to mass produce a range-extended EV in form of the Bolt. With the Blazer, the brand plans to capture the EV market.
The EV flaunts a full-width DRL with illuminated Chevrolet logo
The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer flaunts an aggressive front fascia with a long and muscular hood, a closed-off grille, a full-width DRL with an illuminated logo, sleek LED headlights, and a raked windscreen. On the sides, it is flanked by roof rails, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and 19/21/22-inch alloy wheel options. Wrap-around LED taillamps, a shark-fin antenna, and a diffuser grace the rear end of the EV.
It is offered with multiple powertrain options
The full specifications of the 2024 Blazer are yet to be revealed. Chevrolet has confirmed that the EV will be offered with multiple battery packs and powertrain options with either front-wheel-drive or rear-wheel-drive configuration, and an optional all-wheel-drive system. However, the top-of-the-line SS trim has a range of 515km on a single charge, generates 557hp/879Nm, and uses the brand's Wide Open Watts (WOW) mode.
The car has head-up display and ADAS functions
On the inside, the Chevrolet Blazer gets a dual-tone interior featuring ventilated seats, automatic climate control with circular air vents, ambient lighting, a head-up display, and a multifunctional steering wheel. It houses an 11-inch digital instrument cluster and a 17.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Passengers' safety is ensured by multiple airbags and a host of ADAS functions.
