Sales of the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV resumed earlier this year, reaching 600 units in Q1 and potentially reaching a four-digit number this quarter. Meanwhile, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) listed the RS RWD version of the model, revealing its energy consumption.

The Chevrolet Blazer EV RS RWD, with a 102-kilowatt-hour battery and 21-inch wheels (275/45R21), has an EPA Combined range of 324 miles. This is the highest result ever recorded for an Ultium-based all-electric car (excluding pickups and GMC's behemoths).

Chevrolet Blazer EV RWD is Ultium's range king (among cars)

The Chevrolet Blazer EV RS RWD is the longest-range electric car (324 miles EPA), based on the GM's Ultium platform (excluding large pickups and SUVs from Chevrolet and GMC). The Chevrolet Equinox EV gets up to 319 miles of EPA range, while Cadillac Lyriq gets up to 314 miles. Acura and Honda models are also slightly behind.

That's a noticeable 45-mile (16%) difference compared to 279 miles for the entry-level Chevrolet Blazer EV eAWD version, which the EPA listed in 2023.

However, let's note that the base eAWD version has a single rating for both LT and RS trims, despite the LT having 19-inch wheels (255/60R19) and the RS having 21-inch wheels (275/45R21). We assume there will be at least a slight real-world difference between the two trims.

The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV RS RWD with 21-inch wheels' energy consumption, including charging losses, is estimated at 92 MPGe or about 366 watt-hours per mile (2.7 miles/kWh).

This result is about 4.3% worse than the eAWD rating, but because the difference in battery capacity is 17 kWh or 20% (102 kWh vs. 85 kWh), the range is still much higher.

The one big missing version of the Chevrolet Blazer EV is the upcoming performance-oriented SS with an all-wheel drive powertrain. It's expected to get 294 miles of EPA range and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds.

Pricing

The base Chevrolet Blazer EV has an MSRP of $48,800 and a destination charge of $1,395. Because it's qualified for a $7,500 federal tax credit, the effective cost is as low as $42,695. The RS RWD version costs several thousand more.

The Chevrolet Blazer EV SS AWD most likely will effectively start above $50,000, but not necessarily above $55,000.
