Chevy Blazer EV sales suspended by GM due to significant software problems

GM has put a stop-sale order on the Chevy Blazer EV due to software issues that have rendered the vehicle undrivable. The company confirmed the halt in deliveries after experiencing 23 issues during tests, including the infotainment system crashing and displaying multiple error messages. Journalist Kevin Williams also encountered problems with the display and was left stranded when the vehicle broke down while charging.

Chevrolet stated that they are aware of the software quality issues affecting a limited number of Blazer EV owners and are pausing sales to ensure a great customer experience. All new deliveries are currently on hold, according to VP Scott Bell.

The Chevy Blazer EV is powered by GM’s Ultium battery system, also used in other vehicles such as the GMC Hummer EV and the Cadillac Lyriq, which have also been the subject of complaints. A GM spokesperson stated that the Blazer’s problems are not safety-related or related to Ultium or Google Built-In.
