General Motors has already processed all 2020 Corvette orders, even though production won’t switch over to the 2021 model year until early December. That means we already know how many 2020 Corvette examples will be produced when all is said and done, along with where those vehicles were sold.
In total, the GM Bowling Green Assembly plant in Kentucky will produce 20,368 examples of the 2020 Corvette, including 16,787 coupes and 3,581 convertibles. Of those, 18,577 were delivered to customers in the United States – representing 91.2 percent of the entire production run. A further 1,490 units, equivalent to 7.3 percent of the total production run, were delivered in Canada, along with 162 in the Middle East and 139 in Mexico.
Based on these numbers, it would seem the 2020 Corvette will be pretty rare in Canada and even more uncommon in the Middle East and Mexico. Those who ordered 2020 Corvette Convertible models will find themselves in an even more exclusive group, however. Just 270 2020 Corvette Convertible models went to Canada, while 37 went to the Middle East and one to Mexico. You didn’t read that wrong – of the 126 million-plus people in Mexico, only one is currently in possession of a 2020 model-year Corvette Convertible.
Production of the 2021 Corvette and Corvette Convertible will begin on December 8th, 2020. The automaker had wanted to pivot to production of the 2021 model-year Vette earlier in the year, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed those plans. Chevy introduced a number of small changes to the car for the 2021 model year, including two new exterior colors, Red Mist Tintcoat Metallic and Silver Flare Metallic, and a new Strike Yellow/Sky Cool Gray interior color combination.
