Production constraints have been updated for 2021 Corvette production while the current semiconductor shortage is not a factorYesterday, we had the opportunity to take part in a Chevrolet local area marketing meeting to go over the current state of production and marketing for all of Chevrolet's platforms including the Corvette. It was an interesting meeting in that it shed some light on how the semiconductor shortage is affecting many of Chevrolet's platforms with the exception of the Corvette.
While Chevy Malibu, Equinox and Trax production continues to be impacted by the semiconductor shortage and the assembly plants responsible for production of those models remain closed through mid-April, Blazer and Colorado production is still progressing with shipments to dealers slowing to a crawl.
The Blazers and Colorados that can be built remain sitting at the factories awaiting a retrofit with the required semiconductors.
Right now, Chevy's focus is on Silverado, Tahoe and Suburban production in order to meet the demand for those vehicles. Chevy is doing everything they can to divert products and attention to keeping those models rolling off the assembly line.
