Production of the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV is scheduled to end before the calendar flips to 2024. However, the exact date in which the two all-electric hatchbacks will cease production for the 2023 model year was previously unclear. Now, GM Authority has learned exactly when production is set to end for the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV.
According to sources familiar with the matter, production of the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV is now scheduled to end on December 20th, 2023. Of course, it bears mentioning that this date may change for any number of different reasons, including parts supply issues or the ongoing UAW worker strike.
As GM Authority reported, production of the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV was previously scheduled to end on November 7th, 2023. However, we later learned that production was extended by several weeks, with the production end date set for some time in December. Now, a more exact end date is known.
The start of regular production (SORP) for the two Chevy Bolt models was in July of 2022. As such, the 2023 model year for these all-electric hatchbacks will boast a production run of 17 months, assuming the current production end date of December 20th holds. GM previously stated that it aims to produce 70,000 units of the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV over the course of the 2023 calendar year. So far in the U.S., the General has sold a total of 49,494 units for the year as of Q3.
As a reminder, both of the Chevy Bolt models ride on the GM BEV2 platform, cradling a 65 kWh battery pack and a single front-mounted motor. Production takes place at the GM Lake Orion plant in Michigan.
