The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV SS Has Been Delayed For a Few Months

Those who want more performance from their 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV will have to wait a bit longer.

  • The high-performance version of the upcoming electric SUV is now expected to arrive in the spring of 2024.

  • Other trim levels are still on track to arrive this summer.

  • The sporty SS version should still cost $66,995 when it arrives on the U.S. market.

The upcoming Chevrolet Blazer EV SS was scheduled to launch in late 2023, but this is apparently not the case anymore.

Looking at Chevrolet’s American website, the new electric crossover is now said to become available in the spring of 2024.

This delay of a few months has not been explained by the automaker yet, so we don’t know if it is caused by an issue with the production chain. This could be possible since the company has to refurbish its Mexican factory in Ramos Arizpe ahead of the vehicle’s launch since it will be the first electric model made there.

For the moment, other trim levels of the Blazer EV are still on track to make their initial delivery estimates, which means that customers could receive their Blazer EV 2LT and RS by the end of summer.

The other two versions that were unveiled at the vehicle’s press launch a year ago are the 1LT and the PPV, which is intended for Police use.

Both of these variants were planned for an introduction in the first quarter of the next year, but given the SS was originally supposed to arrive before them, they might also be delayed.

Despite having been pushed back a few months, the Blazer EV SS should still carry a base price of US $65,995 when it eventually becomes available at dealerships across the country.

This version will continue the tradition of Chevrolet’s SS models by offered a lot more performance than the regular models in the lineup.

Indeed, the Blazer EV SS will be powered by two electric motors that deliver 557 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of torque, which should be sufficient to power it up to 60 mph (96 km/h) from a stop in less than 4 seconds, according to General Motors.

The SS will also stand out from other Blazer EV models with its appearance, featuring a unique grille, standard 22-inch wheels, and a two-tone paint treatment.

Inside, drivers will be faced with an 11-inch digital instrument cluster and a standard 17,7-inch center touchscreen. Upholstery choices will include red sueded microfiber seating surfaces or optional orange accents.

If mainstream versions do arrive on sale in the coming months, the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV will become the first mainstream EV from GM to use the company’s latest Ultium technology, which is already available in the Cadillac Lyriq luxury SUV.
