The next GM electric car is the Chevrolet Blazer


There are more options than ever for electric vehicles, especially as old companies like General Motors and Ford are starting to develop electronic versions of their petrol and hybrid vehicles. GM has just revealed (part) another upcoming model: Chevrolet Blazer EV.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra unveiled the Chevrolet Blazer EV in a tweet today. There are no details about the car, other than the photo provided and the promise of more details to come on July 18. The small print below the photo also confirms that the car will be available in the spring of 2023.

WHAT DOES A ELECTRICAL VEHICLE REALLY COST?

The original blazer was a Chevrolet K5 Blazer, launched in 1969, which was a full-size SUV with a removable roof. GM later redesigned it into a cabinet-like structure without a removable roof, which also served as a base for Suburban. The car went into production again in December 2018 as a medium-sized SUV, but without any electric or hybrid options.

The electric blazer in the picture looks a little different from the typical 2022 gas-powered blazer – the headlights have a much simpler design, to begin with. TechCrunch reports that the vehicle will use the GM Ultium EV system, the same technology used in Hummer EV, Cadillac Lyriq and other designs.

Regardless of the final details, the Blazer EV will enter the ever-expanding market. BMW launched the electric SUV earlier this month, the iX1, and Ford has begun launching its much-anticipated F-150 electric pickup for customers.
