Chevrolet recently revealed its new 2024 all-electric Blazer SUV, the brand’s first electric vehicle (EV) for the midsize SUV market. It comes on the heels of several other traditional automakers announcing new model EVs this summer. Toyota, Hyundai, Volkswagen, and Cadillac have all unveiled new EV models in the last few weeks.
Now with the Chevy Blazer added to the roster, it is clear automakers have an opportunity to strengthen and expand EV adoption in the United States by offering a wide range of electric models. Mass EV adoption will only happen if consumers have a variety of options depending on their needs, not the one-size-fits-all approach used by some manufacturers who advocate for the direct sales business model.
Local dealerships aim to provide consumers in their communities with all of the vehicle options to ensure they find the personal transportation that is right for them. The popular Ford F-150 Lightning, for example, was a breakthrough for consumers whose jobs or lifestyles require a heavy-duty truck. Conversely, those who need a large luxury SUV can find one in the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. And for buyers interested in a smaller vehicle, Toyota has a Compact Cruiser EV coming in 2024.
Many consumers may still be hesitant to switch from an internal combustion engine vehicle to an EV, but with more automakers introducing different EV models like the Blazer, consumers who previously thought EVs might not fit their lifestyle are more apt to go electric. As more Americans choose EVs, dealers and repair shops will be ready with the proper, conveniently located facilities and parts from automakers to bring the electric revolution one step closer to reality.
