UPDATED: Chevrolet announces that the Blazer EV SS will debut on July 18.

  • The Blazer SS will be a battery-electric version of Chevrolet's Blazer.

  • This is the first time the Super Sport badges will join an electric vehicle from Chevrolet.

  • Chevy says this all-electric Blazer SS will debut on July 18 and will be available by spring 2023.

The Super Sport badge is one of Chevrolet’s most recognizable logos and is a cherished piece of Chevrolet heritage. Well, it looks like Chevrolet is giving its beloved SS badge a modern update—or at least a modern home.

Chevy is teasing the upcoming all-electric Blazer SS. This isn’t the first time a crossover or SUV has seen the Super Sport badging, but it is the first time Chevrolet has placed the badge on an electric vehicle.

Unfortunately, details are extremely thin about this upcoming EV. Chevrolet hasn’t actually rolled out any information about the Blazer SS, other than the teaser video at the bottom of this page.

But we can expect it will likely ride on the General Motors Ultium platform, which underpins the Cadillac Lyriq and GMC's Hummers. With the SS badge on this Blazer, it's possible this all-electric crossover eschews the single-motor option and defaults to the more expensive dual-motor layout.

Styling, too, is up in the air. Chevrolet’s reborn Blazer, assembled in Mexico, launched only a few years ago, which means this could share a lot of the standard Blazer’s styling, while sporting certain elements to play up its all-electric DNA. Regardless, it appears to be targeting Ford’s Mustang Mach-E, which could play a role in its looks.

Chevrolet says the all-electric Blazer SS will make its official debut July 18, 2022 and is scheduled for dealer deliveries in spring 2023.
