Bowling Green Corvette Plant Temporarily Halts Production

GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant

The GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant, which is the only facility in the world to produce the Corvette, has temporarily suspended production due to a parts supply issue.

The plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky, produces the mid-engine Corvette, which was introduced in July 2019 to much acclaim.

"Right now, this week, the week of October 12, we are not running production. So we’re not producing cars," said Rachel Bagshaw, spokesperson for the Bowling Green facility. She said she could not specify which parts caused the delay.

Our supply chain, our manufacturing, and our engineering teams are all working closely with our supply base to mitigate further impacts on production," said Bagshaw. "We do expect that the plant will resume normal operations next Monday, Oct. 19."    

The Bowling Green Corvette plant was shut down for two months earlier this year due to COVID-19.
