The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV was just discovered, but in addition to the civilian Blazer EV, GM is going to provide a Police Pursuit Automobile edition.
Judging from sitting down in the backseat of the normal Blazer EV at GM’s media backgrounder, there is adequate room to place a perp or two, but it is undoubtedly no Tahoe. All Blazer EV PPV styles will feature a police-distinct interior that makes it possible for room for gear and emergency tools.
Underneath, the cop vehicle will attribute the premier battery in the lineup. GM still isn’t stating how big the battery will be, but it’s crystal clear that range is a priority for the Blazer EV Pursuit auto. Law enforcement departments will be equipped to choose among a solitary-motor rear-wheel-drive model or a dual-motor all-wheel-travel option. Chevy says the PPV will be primarily based on the SS design, so even though it is not talking certain output, that could indicate the AWD variation could have the SS’ 557 horsepower and 648 pound-feet of torque. If so, that’s one particular spicy cop automobile.
Chevy does say that the PPV will have the significant-overall performance Brembo brakes from the SS as common machines. Given that it is dependent on the SS design, that usually means it must have the “track-tuned” suspension, far too.
GM suggests the PPV fleet product will arrive in the 1st quarter of 2024, so it’ll be just about two many years before you see the very first Blazer EV cop automobiles on patrol.
