June 2015 Corvette Sales (new)

It's the first of the month (July 2015) and that means it's time for the monthly Corvette sales report from General Motors. In June 2015, a total of 2,807 Corvettes were sold for a 3.1% increase over the 2,723 Corvettes sold in June 2014. For the Calendar Year to Day (CYTD), a total of 18,307 Corvettes have been delivered and we are running 3.2% ahead of the 17,744 Corvettes sold during the same time period in 2014.

Taking a look at the 2,807 Corvettes sold last month vs the 3,514 Corvettes sold in May 2015, there was a month to month decline of nearly 700 cars for a total decrease of 20.1%.

The 2015 Model Year ended in the middle of June (Wednesday, June 17th to be precise) and so the decline in sales is mostly like due to the end of the model year and the interruption of normal deliveries to dealers who are now waiting for their 2016 Corvettes to come in. We will probably see a surge in delivers in July as those early bird Corvette buyers take deliveries of the first 2013 models. Here's the GM Sales Report for Corvettes in June 2015:

For the month of June, GM delivered 259,353 vehicles in the United States which was up 7% over sales in June 2014.
