GM Could Continue Producing the 2023 Chevrolet Bolt Until December

The Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV could be produced for an additional month.

  • The small EV has been cancelled and production was supposed to end on November 7.

  • The automaker could now continue building the Bolt EV and EUV for about a month longer.

  • This should help keep customers satisfied until the next generation arrives.

New reports show that General Motors could extend production of the 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV until December.

A while ago now, GM announced that it would discontinue the Bolt EV and EUV models despite them being quite recent and still very popular.

The company later confirmed that a new generation is in the making and being treated as a priority, but it sounds like there might be a delay between the retirement of the 2023 models and the arrival of the new one.

In order to bridge this gap, GM might decide to push the end of Bolt production, which was scheduled for November 7, to December.

This has been claimed by GM Authority, who says a new exact date has not been announced yet, but we can assume this means the Bolt will be coming down the assembly line for at least a month longer than initially planned.

This means that the 2023 model year will have seen a production run of 17 months instead of a more typical 12.

Of course, extending production as such will help General Motors achieve its production targets for this model, which were set at 70,000 units for the year.

Since the company reported having built 33,659 Bolt EVs and EUVs in the first half of the year, this target seems realistic.

At the moment, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is the most affordable electric vehicle offered in North America, and its decent range makes it a good option for many buyers interested in a small electric vehicle.

The decision to discontinue the current model so soon probably stems from the fact that it is the only EV in the automaker’s lineup that doesn’t use its new Ultium technology, which will be rectified with the next generation.
