February 2010 Corvette Sales

by Keith Cornett on March 2, 2010

February 2010 Corvette Sales

Corvette sales hit a new low last month with just 624 Corvettes delivered during February 2010. That’s a decline of -39% from February 2009′s 1,027 sales figure and -26.9% off of January 2010′s 854 deliveries. A shortened selling period of 24 days combined with several winter storms that blanketed much of the country is to blame for the decline.

The bigger news this period is that ZR1 inventories continue to rise. As of yesterday, there are now 256 Corvette ZR1s available at dealer showrooms, an increase of 65 ZR1s available at the beginning of February. Overall, 2010 Corvette inventories grew during the month of February from 1,685 to 2,389 as of March 1st. If Corvette sales don’t pick up soon, it’s very likely we’ll see additional plant closures in the coming months.
