April 2015 Corvette Sales

Great sales numbers continue for the Chevrolet Corvette!

This morning, GM posted the monthly sales numbers for April 2015. For the month, GM reported 3,469 Corvettes were delivered. This is slightly down from last April’s number of 3,514 for a net change of -1.3%. Despite the slight drop, last month’s sales figures rank 3rd on our chart for April sales since 2006.

For the calendar year (January-April), a total of 11,986 have been delivered. This is 2.5% higher than the 11,693 Corvettes delivered in 2014.

We treat our Corvettes like babies.

Now this video produced by ExxonMobil takes a behind-the-scenes look at the Corvette “birthing” process, including the first bottle given to the new “infant” – full of Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil, not milk!

The video is particularly significant now because Chevrolet just produced the 600,000th Corvette filled with Mobil 1 motor oil, a feat that took 21 years to accomplish.

Chevrolet has Produced Over 8,200 Corvette Z06s in 2015

At the National Corvette Museum’s Bash, we learned that 8,206 Corvette Z06s have been produced so far in 2015. That count is as of April 22nd, so by now that number has probably grown in the few days it’s taken us to digest this information.

Regardless of the Corvette Z06’s 2.95 second 0-60 mph time or a 1.2g lateral grip, when you get down to it, the most important number is how many can GM sell. Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter called 2015 “The Year of the Z06″. Now we know why!
