The upcoming electric utility vehicle shares much of its design with the gasoline-powered model, but that’s where the similarities end, GM Canada says. The Blazer EV is built on the company’s Ultium battery platform — shared with the Cadillac Lyriq, Chevrolet Silverado EV and others — and will offer an estimated maximum driving range of 400 to 515 kilometres on a full charge, depending on trim level. Reservations opened in July and deliveries begin next summer. Four trims will be offered, topped by the $80,000-plus SS. The least expensive model — the 1LT — is due in the first quarter of 2024 with a sticker of $51,998, plus $2,200 delivery.
