Chevrolet Unveils the 2024 Blazer EV PPV

The Chevrolet Blazer EV will receive its own police variant.

The shift to electric vehicles is not exclusive to the general public. Many sectors of society will have to switch to cleaner vehicles in the next few years and police forces are certainly no exception to this new reality.

There are already a few electric vehicles designed to meet the specific needs of law enforcement personnel, but now there’s a new electron-powered vehicle. Introducing the Chevrolet Blazer EV PPV (for Police Pursuit Vehicle), the electric crossover that will be available in early 2024.

Good news for drivers of this future police vehicle, the U.S. automaker said the PPV version is based on the Blazer EV SS, the most powerful and agile of the brand’s planned liveries. Although Chevrolet has not disclosed the final specifications of this police pursuit vehicle, it is permissible to speculate a little bit by taking the figures of the Blazer EV SS. The consumer-oriented SUV will leave Chevrolet’s shop with 564 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of peak torque, figures that allow the vehicle to hit 0-96 mph in under four seconds. So we can expect a Blazer EV PPV similar to this civilian variant.

Of course, the vehicle will be equipped with skid plates, high-speed tires, steel wheels and additional emergency equipment. It will also be possible to tow light items such as radar trailers, as well as bike racks when the vehicle is equipped with a dealer-installed Class 1 hitch.

Inside, police-specific front seats are designed to accommodate seat belts and portable equipment for greater comfort while on patrol, while standard non-programmed steering wheel buttons allow installers to customize the vehicles to the needs of each police force.

In the trunk, the raised floor has been removed to give officers more cargo space, while the digital display mirror gives the driver better visibility. The 9C1 package adds a standard vinyl floor, a police-specific center console and a vinyl rear seat. Another package, dubbed 9C3, is also available and offers carpeted flooring, a standard center console and cloth rear seats.
