The 2024 Blazer EV is Chevrolet’s first fully-electric SUV. It’s easy to access, has a spacious cabin, and promises quick charge times and a 280-mile driving range. But, the Blazer EV doesn’t offer Android Auto or Apple CarPlay and the infotainment system has some early bugs that need addressing.

    Strange move to ditch CarPlay and Android Auto. I’m oddly dependent on these features since my settings and app placement on the home screens can “travel” with me from car to car. This seems to be the case with non-traditional automakers as well (aka Start Ups) like Lucid, Tesla, and Rivian. I understand avoiding the licensing agreements with Apple and Google on those features for the start up EV manufacturers, but GM continues to include CarPlay/AA in their current and future ICE vehicles. Additionally, I’d imagine they would have to license the Integrated Google Services for their EVs anyway. I wonder what the reasoning behind this was.

    Pure garbage. 🤮 Crap range ⛽️

    Toyotas new solid state battery technology has a range of 1,200 kilometres and charges in 10 minutes. 😊

    Styling looks good 👍

    Stop sale 🛑 activated at GM. Already major software problems and a huge recall. 👎🏼

    Alex is the rock star of CR! Hope GM debugs the software soon. I guess GM thought they could do software better than Apple and make tons of money from in-car purchases.

  4. A mere $60,000..Uh, no thanks.

  5. I cannot wait for about ten years from now when all these car’s batteries go kaput. These electric cars will then be worthless, because the cost of replacing the battery will be greater than just buying a new car. Anyone that is buying an electric car is a short sighted clown.

    If this were $10k cheaper, I’d consider it. It’s just not worth it at its current price point. It’s also very obvious that American manufacturers rushed into the EV market to make a quick profit. The lack of reliable technology and very strange design choices proves that. It’s just a fad to them, so they don’t respect their own designs.

  7. Typical GM. They get some things brilliantly right while simultaneously getting other things horribly wrong.

    Big auto isn’t doing very well at EVs. The problem for them is companies like China’s Build Your Dreams (BYD) not only know how to build them but also know how to build them cheaply.

    I sold my Ford stock last year, I just don’t see any of them making it. They keep pushing off development plans to some time in the future. The problem is that by the time companies such as GM and Toyota decide that they are ready to fully commit, it’s going to be too late because Tesla and China will be 10 years or more ahead in technology.
