The new 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV AWD (all-wheel drive) comes with a starting price of $56,715, which might raise eyebrows and be considered a high price by some potential buyers. Such a price can be attributed to several factors that make the Blazer EV a compelling choice for those who are willing to pay a premium for cutting-edge technology, advanced features, and eco-friendly performance wrapped up in a rather good-looking SUV package.

Electric vehicles (EVs) typically have a higher initial cost compared to their gasoline-powered counterparts. However, it’s essential to consider the long-term cost savings on fuel and maintenance that EVs offer, making them more economical over time.

The Blazer EV AWD trim levels are part of the initial production run, with other trim levels suspected to hit market later with a lower price point, such as a front-wheel-drive FWD model. As less expensive models are introduced later, the price may become more competitive, appealing to a broader range of buyers.

The Blazer EV 2LT AWD model comes equipped with a plethora of high-tech features and amenities, which further helps justify the price point. Customers get to enjoy a 17.7-inch touchscreen, an 11-inch digital cluster, heated front seats and side mirrors, adaptive cruise control, a power liftgate, and a 360-degree camera system, among other features. These advanced technologies enhance convenience, safety, and overall driving experience, making the Blazer EV a near-luxury option for eco-conscious consumers.

Chevy offers various trim levels with different configurations and ranges, allowing customers to choose the model that best fits their needs and budget. For example, the RS AWD model, priced at $60,215, adds even more premium features such as ventilated front seats, a HUD (Head-Up Display), and a camera-equipped rearview mirror. The top-of-the-line rear-wheel-drive RS model, priced at $61,790, comes with additional perks, including a Bose audio system and an EPA-estimated range of 320 miles, making it an attractive option for those seeking the utmost in luxury and performance. The Chevy Blazer SS trim resides at the top of the trim line, with a price of $65,995 along with added performance to the tune of 557 horsepower.

An upcoming Blazer EV FWD LT model, expected to start around $44,995 and available at the start of 2024, may seem more affordable, but it will likely come with a less powerful motor, a smaller battery pack, and fewer features compared to the AWD and RS variants. As EVs enter the market with more mainstream offerings, the pricing scale should eventually be more reflective of their current gas-powered counterparts.
