As previously reported by GM Authority, production of the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV was scheduled to cease on November 7th, 2023. Now, GM Authority has learned that production of the Chevy Bolt models has been extended by several weeks.
It’s worth noting that the start of regular production (SORP) of the two models was back in July 2022, meaning that the 2023 model year of the two electric vehicles will boast a production run of 17 months.
As a reminder, General Motors expects to produce 70,000 units of the Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV over the course of the 2023 calendar year. Notably, as of Q2 2023, The General recorded a total of 33,659 units sold, meaning that the 70,000 goal is well within reach.

One of the most striking aspects reflected by the sales figures is the substantial year-over-year increase the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV have enjoyed, likely stemming from the multiple recalls and stop-sales that General Motors issued in the years prior.
Under the skin, the Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV both ride on the GM BEV2 platform, which serves as the precursor to the GM BEV3 platform currently found underneath several GM EV products. A 65 kWh battery pack supplies the front-mounted electric motor, while total output is rated at 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.
Production currently takes place at the GM Lake Orion plant in Michigan.
