Corvette Production Halted Due to Parts Shortage

By Staff Writer February 23, 2023 358

General Motors' Chevrolet division has idled its Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky due to a continuing parts shortage. GM stated “the parts shortage is not due to a semiconductor chip issue” though they failed to say what parts were in short supply.  The plant employs over 1,300 people and plans to resume production on Monday, February 27th. 

The last time the plant was idled was in October 2022, for a week. Production of Corvette Stingrays and the Corvette Z06 , the vehicles produced in Bowling Green have suffered quite a few setbacks in recent years, due to Covid shutdowns and parts issues.
