2014 Chevrolet Volt Won’t Launch Until August Or Later

Last year we reported Chevrolet had begun 2013 Volt production in early June, and by July they were shipping to dealerships, but this year, it appears nothing more regarding the 2014 Volt will be even announced until August.

This deviates from previous word we received a few months ago when we were told 2014 details would be announced in June 2013, but that month came and went without explanation.

The latest today is a brief bit of news saying news will be coming later.

“The 2014 model year Volt is estimated to begin in mid-August,” said Chevrolet Communications Representative Michelle Bunker Malcho. “At that time we will announce additional product and pricing details.”

We asked her to clarify if this was when production would start as that seemed implied.

To this we were told GM has gotten away from divulging info one way or the other on production schedules.

Reasons for the difference in timing this year include, but are not limited to: 1) GM is still working on its original 2013 production schedule which it has not fulfilled to date, and numbers of which it is not at liberty to divulge; 2) There remain a good number of unsold 2013s still to be moved off of dealers’ lots; 3) production schedules normally do vary year by year. As a reminder, we were told the car was launched in November 2010, so changeover at the factory is not on any set month.

Not commented on is whether GM will be making any last minute changes to the car. Nor will GM state when exactly the 2014 Volt production will begin. Will it be August? September? No comment.
