The final dealer order cycle, or DOSP, for the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV has been pushed back yet again, GM Authority has learned. We previously reported that orders for the two all-electric Chevys would end September 28th. Now, however, the final dealer order cycle for the two Bolts has been pushed back to November 2nd, 2023, according to sources familiar with the matter.
It’s unclear at this time if the DOSP pushback will affect the production end date for the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV. For the moment, production of the two Bolt models is set to end on December 20th, as GM Authority covered before. That said, it’s quite possible that production will now be extended by several weeks, possibly leading into January. Production of the two Bolts was previously expected to end November 7th, 2023, but was later extended by several weeks.
The start of regular production (SORP) for the 2023 Bolt EV and Bolt EUV began in July of the 2022 calendar year. With that in mind, production of the 2023 model-year EVs will boast a lengthy 17-month production run, assuming the current production end date holds at December 20th of 2023. That said, these dates may change for a number of different reasons, including parts supply issues or the ongoing UAW worker strike.
GM has stated that it is aiming to produce 70,000 units of the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV during the course of the 2023 calendar year. The General is currently on track to hit that goal, with roughly 50,000 units sold as of Q3.
As a reminder, the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV both ride on the GM BEV2 platform, with a 65 kWh battery pack providing the juice to a single front-mounted electric motor. Production takes place at the GM Lake Orion plant in Michigan.
