Level some of the you know the buses of the the new ev uh laser ev yeah the blazer ev starts with the altium propulsion system which we designed across gm portfolio for this modular capability and with that we were able to package three different battery sizes we took the largest size we pushed the wheels out and set the wheelbase and then we integrated it to the

Underbody with a low center of gravity and if i show you in the rear seat we got this flat mode floor that’s the beauty of that platform right and lots of interior space all that kind of stuff yeah well let me tell you a little bit about the drive construction so we’ve got front-wheel drive yep rear wheel drive and all-wheel which is exciting on that yeah actually

Two different all-wheel drive systems yeah so we have basically on the lt we go with the front wheel drive and then with the 2lt we do front wheel drive and all-wheel drive okay and then when we go to the irs we put rear-wheel drive we put a larger rear drive unit right oh okay so more power that gets more power then what we do on this ss which i had behind me yeah

Is we put the front drive unit in combined with the large rear drive unit okay and we got 500 57 horsepower and 648 foot pounds yeah so that’s what’s pretty cool about it is that altium has the flexibility to plug and play these different driving absolutely absolutely and you know pick and choose for consumers right we’re giving them the choice all right we can

Talk a little bit about range yeah so like on the lt one lt it gets 247 miles of range and on our rear wheel drive we get 320. and on this vehicle that you see behind me the ss we get 29 290 that’s the number i thought it was a perfect pretty good number and then speaking of ss we’ve got lots of technology and lots of cool things we’ve got these 22-inch wheels

Yes we got front brembo brake yeah we got a sportoon chassis we’ve got super cruise standard we’ve got heads up this place standard you know just all kinds of neat you know technology to help the customer you know even our the large 17.7 screen that justin talked about just really cool and it’s a pre-formed display right so it gives the ability to have all the

Data across the end entire screen okay and leverage that that really large screen that we have yeah well we think our customers are going to be extremely excited about the blaze really because of the choices that we have but this is this is an opportunity to have a different experience and the level of performance that you see in this ss yeah we’re talking 0 to

60 in less than four seconds i know it’s amazing that’s something that we really can’t offer at our current blazer which we’re really excited about as well i know but but this one’s got just a different level of technology and you know great design presence we’ve got bigger tire od bigger tires and we got 19-inch wheels on the lt 21’s on the irs and 22s on the ss
