Earlier today, GM notified Chevrolet dealers that 2020 Corvette production will resume May 26th and run through October. The start of regular production of the 2021 model year will begin on November 2nd.
The Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant will start off running only one shift in order to insure the safety of its workers and give its parts suppliers the chance to ramp up production at their own facilities.
Last month GM stated that all 2020 Corvette orders that are currently in the system and at a 3000 or higher status, would be built. Whether or not that holds true remains to be seen. Two weeks after the start of regular production on May 26th, a cross-functional team will meet to develop an officially revised plan for 2020 vs 2021 allocation and build schedule.
This is great news since many customers who have placed orders for a 2020 Corvette, have been left in limbo wondering what would happen to their order.
2020 Corvette Convertible Production
Production of the 2020 Corvette convertible was expected to begin the first week of April, but that was before the factory shut down in late March. It was originally assumed that Chevrolet would push all 2020 Corvette convertible orders to the 2021 model year, however that won’t be the case. Customers will be happy to know that 2020 Corvette convertible production has been pushed back to July 20th.
As of right now, there are NO current constraints and all colors and option combinations are available.
We’ll have more production information here as it becomes available to us.
