Chevy says reservations are currently full.
General Motors has a good problem: too many people want to buy the company's electric vehicles.
"Regarding Blazer EV reservations, we have fulfilled our reservation target and will resume reservations closer to production launch," a Chevrolet spokesperson confirmed to CarBuzz. No further details were given regarding how many units have been reserved or the trim breakdown.
This news is disappointing for anyone hoping to get their hands on the new Blazer EV, but it's positive for GM to know that it will likely sell out the entire 2024 model year run. Reservations opened in July this year and only took around three months to sell out. Interested customers can still sign up for updates (including when reservations reopen) on Chevy's website.
The 2LT and RS will be the first trims to go on sale in Summer of 2023. They cost $47,595 and $51,995, respectively, with the former offering a choice of front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive and the latter offering FWD, RWD, and AWD. The Blazer SS will join the lineup later in the year, priced at $65,995.
It's the most powerful model, producing 557 horsepower from dual electric motors. Chevy won't offer the base 1LT model until early 2024, though it's unclear if this model will be a 2025 model year vehicle. The 1LT starts at $44,995, making it the cheapest option in the Blazer EV lineup.
Based on the initial demand for Chevy's new electric SUV, we imagine there could be some difficulty obtaining one for MSRP early on. Chevy already announced official starting prices for each trim level, but nothing is stopping a private dealership from charging more, even if a customer has a reservation. Other automakers have attempted to curb the issue of dealer markups (with varying levels of success), but we can't imagine GM can do much in this situation.
