GM announced a production stoppage for the Chevy Blazer EV only a few short months ago. At that time, no return to the market was announced, but the Blazer EV is back. Only three months after the stoppage, the exciting and sporty electric Blazer returns to the market with upgraded software and other enhancements that make it better than before.

One more thing makes the Chevy Blazer EV return exciting

In addition to a renewed entry into the automotive market, this new electric Chevy SUV comes with reduced pricing compared to only a few short months ago. These reduced prices (including destination charges) are:

  • Blazer EV LT AWD – $50,195, previously $56,715
  • Blazer EV RS AWD – $54,595, previously $60,215
  • Blazer EV RS RWD – $56,170, previously $61,790

In addition to these lowered prices, this Chevrolet electric SUV is eligible for the full $7,500 federal EV tax credit, applied at the dealership. This gives new owners a financial advantage over taking a tax break when filing a tax return.

Other trims should join these three later in the year, but this is the lineup for now.

What is the power and driving range of this Chevy electric SUV?

The AWD models of the LT and RS trims use two electric motors to combine for 288 horsepower. You might wonder why the RWD RS is more expensive than the AWD model, and we have the answer. The RWD RS model has a more powerful single motor that generates 340 horsepower to accelerate faster than the AWD models.

We’re still waiting for the range-topping SS model that should deliver 557 horsepower, but that will have to wait a little longer.

The most powerful current trim, RS RWD, also provides the longest driving range, boasting 324 miles on a single charge. The AWD models provide 279 miles of driving range, which should be adequate for most drivers.

It only takes about ten minutes to add 78 miles of driving range to the Chevy Blazer EV when using a DC fast charger.

The Blazer EV’s return marks excitement in the Chevy SUV lineup

This midsize electric SUV comes with two rows of comfortable and sporty seats. Chevy developed this exciting EV from the gas-powered Blazer, which borrows many styling cues from the Camaro. This muscle car influence allows the Blazer EV to look sporty, fun, and exciting, which sets it apart from the sterile, minimalist designs many EVs offer.

The Chevy Blazer EV returns with reduced pricing to continue its quest to be an exciting two-row electric SUV. Once the sporty SS model arrives, that sportiness will be fully realized.
