Very early this morning GM released 2020 Corvette and 2021 Corvette production updates to Chevy dealers.
Production of the 2020 Corvette has stabilized with two shifts working at the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly plant with an average daily production rate of 186 units.
As per page 8 of the 32-page document:
“Production stabilized with 2 shifts (producing ~186 cars per day)”
All 2020 Corvette orders with an event code of 3000+ are slated for production by December.
RPO R8C Museum deliveries will be limited to 45 per week.
2021 Corvette Start of Regular Production
The big news here is that the start of 2021 Corvette production has shifted to December 8th.
On October 7th, we reported that 2020 Corvette production would run through December with 2021 production starting in January. Before that, we reported in early September that 2020 and 2021 Corvette production would run in tandem through December.
Now that two shifts of workers have been churning out approximately 186 Corvettes per day, it appears that 2021 production will start a month earlier than expected.
Since there are no major changes to either 2020 or 2021 model years, there’s no reason to shut the Assembly Plant down for retooling and thus production of both model years, could still run in tandem until all 2020 orders have been built.
GM has also announced that the 2021 Corvette allocation guide with shipments for November, December and January will be released to dealers today. Some dealerships received their 3-month allocation numbers last night.
This is great news for customers that have 2021 orders and should push deliveries to customers a little earlier than originally expected.
As for constraints, there are none as of the time of this writing.
