It looks like General Motors has made the decision to stop selling the electric version of the Chevy Blazer due to software issues. The automaker made the announcement on Tuesday, citing software quality issues as the reason for the decision.
The Chevy Blazer EV was first introduced in 2019 and was hailed as one of the most modern cars on the market. It featured cutting edge technology including a range of driver assistance features, an impressive electric range of much over 300 miles, and a new advanced infotainment system. However, it appears the software behind these advanced features was not up to the standard that GM expected and the automaker has decided to temporarily stop sales while it resolves the issues.
GM has said it will work with customers who have already purchased a Chevy Blazer EV to make sure they are given the best service and that any software issues they may encounter will be promptly addressed. Additionally, GM has issued a recall for about 400 Chevrolet Bolt EVs that may also suffer from a similar software issue.
While this news is certainly unfortunate for those who have been hoping to purchase a Chevy Blazer EV, it is reassuring to know that GM is taking steps to ensure that its software quality is up to a high standard. It’s hoped that the automaker will be able to resolve the issue quickly and that electric vehicle buyers will be able to purchase the car with confidence in the near future.
