Finishes nice so good job all right so you guys know i like to do interviews so i’m here with doug houlihan how are you doug good good to meet you yeah you too doug’s the executive uh executive engineer on the blazer ev program did i get that right executive chief engineer executive chief engineer i always forget something my viewers know i always screw

Things up so it’s all good thanks for taking the time doug i know it’s kind of crazy after the announcement super stoked as the viewers know about gm and what you guys are doing tell me a high level some of the you know the buses of the new ev laser ev yeah the blazer ev starts with the ultim propulsion system which we designed across gm’s portfolio for this

Modular capability and with that we’re 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 that’s the beauty of that platform right and lots of interior space all

That kind of stuff well let me tell you a little bit about the drive control okay so we’ve got front wheel drive yep rear wheel drive and all that which is exciting on that yeah that was and actually two different all-wheel drive systems yeah so we have basically on the lt we go with the front wheel drive yep and then with the 2lt we do front wheel drive

And all-wheel drive and then when we go to the rs we put rear wheel driving we put a larger rear drive unit right oh okay so more power that gets more power than what we do on this ss which i have behind me is we put the front drive unit in combined with the large rear drive unit okay and we get 557 horsepower and 648 foot-pounds of torque yeah so that’s

What’s pretty cool about it is that altium has the flexibility to plug and play these different drives absolutely absolutely and pick and choose for consumers right you give them the choice we’re giving them the choice all right we can talk a little bit about range yeah so like on the lt 1lt it gets 247 miles in range and on our rear wheel drive we get 320.

And on this vehicle that you see behind me the ss we get 290 290 that’s the number i thought it was going to be that’s 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 yeah we got front brembo brakes we got a sport tuned chassis we’ve got supercruise standard we’ve got

Heads-up display 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 freeform display right so it gives the ability to have all the data across the entire screen and leverage that that that really large screen that we have yeah well

We think our customers are going to be extremely excited about the blazer eve 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 zero to 60 in less than four seconds i know it’s amazing that’s something that we really can’t offer on

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 yeah bigger tires and we’ve got 19-inch wheels on the lt 21s on the irs and 22’s on the ss and then we’re doing that police pursuit vehicle yeah and that’ll be based on

A rear-wheel drive and that performance all-wheel drive that we offer on the sf and the large and largest battery pack you could cram in it’ll get the largest of our three battery sizes excellent excellent what we did as i mentioned earlier is we we took the largest battery size and that set the wheelbase and then we we shaped the underbody around it and

Then we created that flat load floor and when you go over the bumps it’s like really that’s all you got yeah it’s really nice any final thoughts about the vehicle you know how stoked are you guys in gm in the direction you’re moving yeah we’re extremely excited we think that this has the level of choices that chevrolet is going to be extremely proud of and

The customers are going to have just buffalo drive rear wheel drive all-wheel drive in fact on the ss we have wow the wide open watch that’s right so lots of great technology lots of safety features and uh we’ll uh we’re it’s and this is a big segment so we’re all in and we’re really excited well thanks doug it’s an honor to meet you thank you very much
