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.
As far as sales promotions go, Chevrolet’s website has dropped the Employee Pricing for Everyone program and in its place is a $2,017 Bonus Cash Allowance on all 2017 Corvettes.
As we are now in January 2018, we have several big dates looming. The final 2018 Corvettes will be built during the week of January 22nd and 2019 Corvettes will start the week of January 29th. Ordering for the Corvette ZR1 begins January 25th so it will be interesting to see how many are picked up to be built as well as any constraints on the ZR1’s carbon fiber components.
Here’s the GM Sales Report for Corvettes in December 2017:
