Chevrolet EVs Latest Affected By Microchip Shortages

Bolt EV joins growing list of chip-short models

  • No new full-size truck stops, but EVs finally paused by shortages

  • Long list of GM vehicles will see shutdowns extended by weeks


General Motors electric vehicle production is finally being affected by the ongoing microchip shortage. While it had significantly affected other GM brands and models, the Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt EUV had escaped the issues. NOw the plant that builds them is set to go idle for a week later this month.

The report from Automotive News says that the Orion Assembly plant in Michigan that is home to the Bolt will close for a week starting August 23rd. It is expected to resume production the following week, but the continuing shortfalls of silicon could prolong that.

According to the same report, GM has added downtime at other plants. Lansing Delta Township, home to Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave has been shut since July 19, and is now not expected to restart until September 6. Spring Hill Assembly in Tennessee will be down starting Monday and is expected to restart on September 6. That plant builds Cadillac XT5 and XT6 as well as GMC Acadia.

Other vehicles seeing shutdowns into September include the Chevrolet Blazer, and Cadillac CT4 and CT5. The GMC Terrain and the Chevrolet Equinox will be paused until September 20. The CAMI plant in Ingersoll Ontario, one of two to build the Equinox, has been closed since February. AN reports that more than 7.1 million missed units of production are expected this year across the industry.
