Chevy Discontinues 2024 Blazer EV

Popular Chevy Blazer EV Stop-Sale over Software Issue

General Motors has issued a cease-and-desist on the Chevy Blazer EV due to evident software concerns correlated to the SUV’s displays and plugging in through Quick Charger locations.

This is certainly a poor moment for the bow-tie badge to flaunt its fresh electric vehicle to the press; singing the praises of the Blazer EV’s premier roominess for travellers and the substantial 17.7 inch centre display, not to forget its more significant rims plus outer shell than opponents, for instance the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E and Hyundai Ioniq 5.

Despite not personally having the misfortune of experiencing these difficulties, Inside EVs and Edmunds reporters have had a run-in with them. What’s more, proprietors too have shown their discontent regarding the Blazer EV.

Edmunds documented a multitude of difficulties arising from their acquisition of the car for extended term assessment which led to its being shipped to the dealership, where it remained for some time.

Inside EVs announced the completion of their weeklong trial after only 28 hours, which induced several grumbles from proprietors who had faced similar circumstances.

“GM engineers are ‘working around the clock’ to identify a solution to the issues that have impacted a ‘limited number’ of owners,” the company said in a statement. GM was quick to reassure those affected that the problems were “not safety related nor related to Ultium or Google Built-in.”

“We understand that a few customers have had software-related quality problems with their Blazer EV,” Scott Bell, Global VP of Chevrolet, informed Automotive News. “Customer satisfaction is our top priority, so we will temporarily pause new deliveries.”

GM also declared: “In order to make sure our customers have a positive experience with their vehicle, we are temporarily suspending sales of Blazer EVs. We are working diligently to introduce a solution and will contact owners with additional details regarding how to arrange their update. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.”

Alas, unfortunately the issue cannot be rectified with a mere OTA update, resulting in those owners affected needing to go to their nearby dealer for installing the updated software.
