Chevy’s Electric Blazer SS comes to fight the Mustang Mach-E

General Motors has an onslaught of electric vehicles coming, amid ambitious plans to go all-electric by 2035. While GMC has the odd Hummer EV and its WTF mode, Chevy’s contributions to that effort up to present were the Bolt and Bolt EUV. These cars are fine but don’t exactly get the pulse racing. But Chevy intends to flesh out its EV lineup with something a little sportier.

When Chevy unveiled the 2024 Silverado EV, they noted that electric versions of the Equinox and Blazer crossovers were on the way. Now Chevy just teased that the Blazer EV will also offer an SS version. SS – in a Chevy context – stands for Super Sport and has been a GM performance badge for decades, most notably appearing on the Camaro.

It’s not quite clear yet what SS will mean in an EV context; Chevy offered no details or specifications. But we expect Chevy to position the hot SUV as a rival to the Ford Mustang Mach E GT and other sporty electric vehicles like the Kia EV6. And the Blazer SS – despite being electric and crossover – could help fill a Camaro-sized hole in the Chevy lineup when the muscle car departs in 2024.

Chevy says they’ll unveil the Blazer SS in full later this year, and it’ll be available in the spring of 2023. No, it’s probably not the electric Chevy Blazer you’ve been dreaming of. But it’s yet another sign that we’re a long way from future electric cars that will be bland people-carriers like the Bolt and Nissan Leaf.
