Chevrolet is preparing to introduce the C8 Corvette to customers on July 18, which also explains why sales of the C7 Corvette have fallen compared to the past. 9,055 units of this sports vehicle, whose release is only a few days away, are getting ready to find their way to dealers.
Covertte sales, which decreased by 11% in the first quarter of 2019 to 3,943 units, managed to reach 4,457 units in the first quarter of 2018. Corvertte sales have been declining for the past 5 years, not just from 2018 to 2019. If we look at the sales figures of the vehicle, 33,329 Corvettes were sold in 2015, 29,995 units in 2016, 25,079 units in 2017 and a total of 18,781 Corvettes in 2018.
Before General Motors announced the release date of the Corvette C8, there were rumors that the Detroit-based automaker would produce the C7 Corvette and C8 simultaneously, but the company announced that the production of the C7 Corvette will end this summer.
