Chevrolet Corvette supercar production suspended once again

Chevrolet Corvette supercar production suspended once again

February 28, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

This time the reason is rather commonplace for the last year – the company lacks components for the Corvette assembly. The re-launch date has already been announced.

The American company Chevrolet is forced to stop the assembly of its Corvette supercar for 5 days – the downtime will last from March 1 to March 5, 2021. Recall that the car is produced at the plant in Bowling Green. Note that this is the sixth stop of mid-engined car production.

The reason is known – there are not enough components for the transmission, which makes it impossible to continue production. Earlier, production was interrupted for two weeks at the very beginning of February this year.

Previous problems with the production of the new Corvette have been related to factory strikes as well as the coronavirus pandemic. All this leads to the fact that buyers receive their cars much later than originally planned.

It should be noted that the hardest hit are the Corvette hybrid modifications called the Z06 and ZR1, as well as the all-electric version.

Their assembly was temporarily canceled altogether. At the end of 2020, Chevrolet produced 21,626 Corvette, although the figure was originally called 40,000 copies.

Meanwhile, more details have emerged about the premium brand Ferrari’s hybrid supercar. The power plant should get 700 hp. At the moment, the supercar is known under the factory index F171.
