GM killed Bolt EV and it is outsold different Chevy EVs in 2024



  • Regardless of being discontinued, the Chevy Bolt EV has outsold the Blazer EV within the first part of 2024
  • Introduced ultimate 12 months, the Blazer EV seems to have triumph over a problematic rollout
  • GM guarantees that after the Bolt EV comes again for 2026 it is going to be probably the most inexpensive EV

The Chevrolet Bolt EV is not in manufacturing, however it nonetheless outsold the Chevy Blazer EV over the primary part of this 12 months, consistent with Normal Motors’ most up-to-date monetary effects and gross sales replace.

GM delivered 8,414 devices of the Bolt EV and its crossover-like Bolt EUV variant within the first two quarters of the 12 months, in comparison to 7,234 Blazer EV deliveries.

The adaptation is a mirrored image of the truth that Bolt EV/EUV deliveries were trailing off since manufacturing ended on the finish of 2023, whilst Blazer EV manufacturing has ramped up. However the truth that the Blazer EV hasn’t but pulled clear of the discontinued Bolt EV in year-to-date gross sales presentations simply how slow that ramp up has been.

GM technically began Blazer EV deliveries ultimate July, and it is been gradual going since then. It struggled to boost up EV deliveries via 2023, due most commonly to problems ramping up its Ultium battery cells. GM reported 21,930 EV deliveries in Q2, up 34% from Q1 and 40% year-over-year, indicating that it has began to show a nook. However earlier objectives to ship 400,000 EVs via 2023—after which the primary part of 2024—have obviously been dashed.

GM minimize costs of the Blazer EV in March, and up to now, past addressing a backlog and device problems that ended in a stop-sale past due ultimate 12 months, it does not seem to have sparked extra gross sales. The ones meager gross sales do a minimum of come with a prime collection of wanted “conquest” shoppers buying and selling in from different manufacturers. GM claims 40% of Blazer EV patrons are new shoppers, coming from rival manufacturers like Jeep, Ford, Hyundai, and Kia.

The Bolt EV will handiest be long past for one type 12 months. CEO Mary Barra has stated that the 2026 Bolt EV would be the maximum inexpensive U.S. EV and can transfer to an LFP battery chemistry to help in making that occur.
