San Francisco: Leading automaker GM has paused sales of its new Chevy Blazer EV after reports of software issues, and is working on to roll out a fix.

The company said, “It is aware that a limited number of Blazer EV owners have experienced some software quality issues.”

“To ensure our customers have a great experience with their vehicle, we are temporarily pausing sales of Blazer EVs. Our team is working quickly to roll out a fix, and owners will be contacted with further information on how to schedule their update. We apologise for the inconvenience,” the company said in a statement.

GM did not confirm how many vehicles are affected, other than saying it’s a “limited” number.

Edmunds purchased a 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV RS AWD for its long-term test fleet but the SUV has been at the dealership for two weeks.

With 23 fault codes on a diagnostic test, they wrote that “What we got back from the dealer was alarming: the single longest list of major faults we at Edmunds have ever seen on a new car.”

“With only 1,600 miles on the odometer, our long-term Blazer EV has been at the dealer for more than two weeks,” they added.

InsideEVs said that their week-long test ended after 28 hours.

The vehicle’s CarPlay and Android Auto-free infotainment system went blank and an attempt to charge the battery failed, producing a “Service Vehicle Soon” error message.

The AWD RS version of the all-electric Blazer SUV starts at just over $60,000.
