GM is halting Corvette production for a week

General Motors announced that it will cease production at its Bowling Green Assembly plant, as well as its main plant in Mexico, this week. The reason for the production halt is not new, as supply chain and parts shortage issues have continued to plague automakers around the world since last year.

More specifically, a Chevrolet representative said:

Due to a temporary problem with parts supply, we can confirm that Bowling Green Assembly will not be starting production the week of August 29th. Our supply chain, manufacturing and engineering teams are working closely with our supply base to mitigate any further impacts to production, and we expect the plant to resume normal operations on Tuesday, September 6, following GM’s annual Labor Day celebration. on Monday, September 5.

The Bowling Green Assembly plant builds, among other things, the mid-engined Corvette C8, while the Mexico plant assembles GMC and Chevrolet pickups. Meanwhile, the new Corvette Z06 could also face a production cut for Model Year 2023. Reportedly, only 10% of MY23 Corvettes will be Z06s, with only 3% getting the full aero package.
