“It’s exciting to see all of these Chevrolet drivers leading their respective series in points as we prepare to finish the season,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet vice president of Performance and Motorsports.

Additionally, Chevrolet currently leads the manufacturer’s standings in NASCAR Cup, NASCAR Xfinity, INDYCAR, NHRA and IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup.

“We appreciate the hard work of our drivers and teams who have scored valuable manufacturer points through this point of the season,” Campbell said. “We remain focused on working with our drivers and teams as they prepare for the important final portion of the season.”

Chevy’s first all-electric Blazer police vehicle 
designed to be pursuit-rated offers exceptional performance

DETROIT – As more states and municipalities implement carbon reduction plans and targets, the all-new 2024 Blazer EV PPV can help achieve them with uncompromising performance and capability for officers.

It is the first pursuit-rated all-electric Chevrolet in more than 60 years of tailoring vehicles for the rigors of law enforcement duty.

“Chevy’s commitment to meeting the needs of law enforcement is rooted in decades of cooperation with police agencies across North America,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of GM Fleet. “This purpose-built electrified Blazer EV PPV will have excellent pursuit performance, the reliability of a Chevrolet and fast-charging necessary to be a high-performance patrol vehicle.”

The Blazer EV PPV will be based off the Blazer EV SS retail model. Final specifications and range will be available closer to launch, in the first quarter of 2024. It will be offered with specific police content including skid plates, police-rated tired, steel wheels and additional emergency equipment support. It will also have the capability for light-duty towing for items such as radar trailers, as well as the capability for bicycle racks when equipped a dealer-installed Class 1 trailer hitch. 

Many patrol cars spend a lot of their time idling, creating emissions from running a gasoline engine to support the electrical loads of a law enforcement vehicle. Chevrolet is utilizing the largest possible Ultium battery available for this Blazer EV PPV to support the electrical needs of a patrol car needed for law enforcement.

Additionally, the Blazer EV PPV has a low center of gravity, thanks to the roughly 1,200-pound (544 kg) battery pack mounted low in the chassis. It also employs Brembo brakes based on the high-performance Blazer EV SS, which are designed to offer superior stopping power.

“The Chevrolet Blazer EV PPV is designed to meet or exceed the demands of the nationally recognized Michigan State Police annual vehicle testing,” said Peper. “Its performance will be a game-changer.”

Well-equipped for patrol

Inside, police-specific front seats are design accommodate duty belts and wearable gear, for greater comfort on patrol, while standard unprogrammed steering wheel buttons allow upfitters1 to connect Push to Talk function for department radios and fingertip operation of emergency warning equipment. A driver spot lamp is also available. 

The standard upfitter wiring harnesses, similar to the Tahoe PPV, includes added connectors to reduce up-fit times. In fact, the vehicle was designed with police-level electrical loads in mind, including a dedicated electrical center, standard upfitter wiring harnesses, and enough power available for the necessary law enforcement equipment. Chevy also offers a standard upfitter vehicle module which provides all necessary signals needed for aftermarket equipment to communicate with the vehicle.

For greater accommodation of rear gear, the Blazer EV PPV offers a larger rear cargo capacity with the “civilian” model’s false floor removed to make room for aftermarket cabinets and organizers. It also comes with a standard Rear Camera Mirror2, allowing officers a wide field of view behind the vehicle. This helps enhance visibility, as the majority of police vehicles equipped with prisoner partitions, cargo barriers and vertical weapon mounts that can obstruct the rear view.  

The Blazer EV PPV 9C1 police package has standard vinyl flooring, a police-spec center console and a vinyl rear seat. A 9C3 Street Appearance package is also available and features carpeting, the regular-production center console and cloth rear seats.

“During the Blazer EV’s development, we spoke with many law enforcement groups across the U.S. and Canada to learn how an all-electric PPV would serve them best and the Blazer EV PPV delivers,” said Peper. “There is strong interest and we believe it has the opportunity to improve how police departments and their officers work with their patrol vehicles.”

The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV PPV begins production in the first quarter of 2024, with pricing and order guide availability expected mid-2023. More information is available at
