Just over two months after GM issued a stop sale for the Chevy Blazer EV following some majorly publicized software issues, that stop sale has finally been lifted. Surprisingly, along with sales resuming, Chevy also slashed prices on all trims of the Blazer EV, though it’s still not as cheap as Chevy originally said it would be.

A stop sale was issued for the Blazer EV after a number of both owners and auto journalists reported glitches with the electric crossover. Friend of the site Kevin Williams was stranded in Virginia in a Blazer EV that he had only been testing for 28 hours, and Edmunds reported over two dozen issues with the Blazer it purchased. Things seem to be all good for now, though. In a statement, GM said that everything has been fixed, and what it learned from the issue will trickle down to other vehicles in its lineup. From GM Authority:

We have made significant software updates that will improve features and functionality to deliver on the high expectations of our customers. We’re confident these improvements will address concerns heard from some early owners and as promised, we’re carrying learnings over to other products in GM’s lineup.


Now that the Blazer EV is back on sale, prices have been lowered, presumably in a bid to lure new buyers. Including destination, the base Blazer EV LT now starts at $50,195, a full $6,520 less than before. Throw on the $7,500 EV credit, and you could get one for $42,695. The RS AWD now starts at $54,595, $5,620 lower than before, while the rear-wheel-drive RS costs $56,170 now, also $5,620 lower than the original MSRP. A cheaper front-wheel-drive 2LT trim comes next year.

While these prices are cheaper than before, the Blazer EV is still pretty expensive. As Car and Driver points out, even with the price cuts the Blazer still costs more than its Honda Prologue platform-mate, which starts at $48,795.
