On Wednesday, General Motors revealed that its Chevrolet Blazer electric crossover, slated to debut in spring 2023 and launch later this year, will be the brand’s first model to be launched. offered in a performance model “SS”.
The SS badge, for the Super Sport, has been a major Chevy emblem since the top of the muscle car era, often corresponding to a higher level of performance. In a short video, GM showcased special wheels for the SS, along with an extended charging port cover.

The Blazer is one of two upcoming affordable electric crossovers. Although it came first, GM provided a more comprehensive view of the $30,000 Chevy Equinox EV (image at top of this piece) will also go on sale in 2023.
Chevrolet has yet to show off a silhouette of the electric Blazer, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a version of the new touchscreen interface the company showed off in January in its Equinox EV shots. That seems to be an evolution of what has been detailed for Cadillac Lyriq.

GM has said that Chevy’s electric crossovers will be affordable models, not high-end models. These two crossovers set the stage for an even lower-priced GM EV to come out sometime in the middle of the decade, including a successor to the Bolt EV.
Both the nameplate and the SS markings are an indication that GM’s mainstream brand has no intention of disrupting its electric vehicle brand. Instead, they plan to continue rolling out all-electric versions of some of the best recognized brands.
GM in 2020 teased a Classic e-Blazer convert, express e-Crate package based on company Ultium Push Platform. The automaker has hinted that it is still being developed as an option available to custom vehicle builders.
