Chevrolet Corvette Plant Running at Full Speed

The Bowling Green Assembly plant is running at full capacity over two shifts to build more Chevrolet Corvettes

  • All remaining undelivered 2021 Vettes are being assembled.

  • Sold orders for 2022 model year Vette began rushing in on July 1st.

  • Demand for the C8 Corvette remains overwhelming.

The new C8 Chevrolet Corvette is an unmitigated success. Despite early delays, demand for the all-new mid-engine Corvette has been impossibly strong. In fact, GM purposefully halted sold orders for the 2021 model year car in late March.

For a few weeks between late May and early June, the Bowling Green Assembly plant was put on hold. By June 7th, the factory was back building brand new Corvettes at absolute full capacity. Since that day, over two shifts, Chevrolet’s been working hard fulfilling the final 2021 model year sold orders.
