2024 Chevy Blazer EV Is Back on Sale at a New, Significantly Reduced Price

After a software-related stop sale order was issued early in the debut of this new model, Chevrolet is now restarting sales of the 2024 Blazer EV. According to the corporation, “significant software updates” have been made to address a number of problems that owners were having. Chevy is also slashing prices dramatically, by as much as $5600 to $6500, depending on the trim level, in an effort to lure customers back.

The Blazer was originally listed for sale by GM in the third quarter of 2023, and the cease sale was announced at the end of the fourth quarter. Only 482 Blazer EVs were recorded sold altogether. The specific issues that owners were facing were not disclosed by Chevrolet; however, InsideEVs and Edmunds purchased one of the initial models and documented a lengthy catalogue of malfunctions pertaining to everything from driver assistance systems to drive motor control modules.

The base price of the Blazer EV LT AWD is now $50,195. The RS, on the other hand, has an all-wheel drive price of $54,595 and a rear-wheel drive price of $56,170. The RWD version is more expensive since it has some mandatory upgrades that make it more expensive. Additionally, according to Chevrolet, the $7500 federal tax credit is available for the Blazer.

It is noteworthy to mention that the Blazer EV’s starting price of $48,795 is still marginally higher than that of its platform-mate, the 2024 Honda Prologue. When Chevy releases the LT FWD configuration—which it claims will start at less than $50,000—that might change. The Prologue was never subject to the same stop sale order because it hasn’t gone on sale yet. Pricing information for the high-performance SS model of the Blazer EV and an extra front-wheel-drive setup for the RS trim are still pending; both are expected to arrive later.

According to Chevy, this software update adds a few new features, such as customisable colour ambient lighting and an updated digital gauge cluster with new visuals that now shows the battery %.
