December 2017 Corvette Sales

December 2017 Corvete Sales


General Motors released their final sales report for the year, covering December 2017 and finalizing the 2017 calendar year sales for the Chevrolet Corvette. In December 2017, Chevrolet sold 2,278 Corvettes which was a decrease of 15.9% from the 2,709 Corvettes sold in December 2016. For the 2017 calendar year, Chevrolet has sold 25,079 Corvettes to US customers. That is down 16.4% from the 29,995 Corvettes delivered in 2016.

Considering the assembly plant was shut down for three months, the 25,079 Corvettes built in 2017 shows there is still pretty good support for the C7 Corvette. Chevrolet would have most likely made up the 5,000 car difference in sales between 2016 and 2017 had the plant been open and building cars during that time.
