GM Slashes Chevrolet Blazer EV Price as Sales Resume After Software Problems

The starting price for available 2024 Blazer EVs is now $50,195, marking a reduction of $6,520 from its initial launch price in August. Meanwhile, the more expensive “RS” models will see price cuts of $5,620, with all-wheel drive versions starting at $54,595 and rear-wheel drive at $56,170.

Further pricing details for other models, including a sub-$50,000 trim, will be disclosed closer to the commencement of sales later this year.

It’s worth noting that these prices do not account for a $7,500 federal tax credit that the vehicle now qualifies for, thanks to the Biden administration’s Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. GM adjusted its materials sourcing to ensure the vehicle meets the requirements for the full incentive.

Price has been a significant barrier to EV adoption, which has progressed slower than anticipated in recent months. However, these price reductions bring the Blazer EV closer in line with its gas-powered counterpart, which typically starts at around $37,000 to $48,000.
