C8 Corvette delivery plans also revealed

In December, General Motors Specialty Vehicles (GMSV) held a special showcase of its Silverado LT Trail Boss, LTZ Premium and Heavy Duty LTZ Premium vehicles in Melbourne.
“It’s taken many months to get to this moment, but it’s definitely been worth the wait,” GMSV Australia and New Zealand Director, Joanne Stogiannis, said at the event in December.
“This is the first time we’ve been able to assemble the entire GMSV new model portfolio, consisting of C8 Corvette Coupe and Convertible, Silverado LT Trail Boss, LTZ Premium and Heavy Duty LTZ Premium, in the same spot at the same time.”
It’s been a monumental year for the new brand, one which has presented its own set of challenges and unique circumstances, but with many highlights.
“We’ve introduced GMSV to thousands of people and have had an unbelievable reaction when we’ve been able to showcase models from the line-up,” Joanne said.
“The reception to the C8 Stingray at Tailem Bend earlier this year was phenomenal, as was the pure pulling-power of the Chevrolet Silverados at Bathurst.
“The fact more than 2,100 new Silverados have been sold in Australia and New Zealand, and the first allocation of C8 Corvette Stingray has been sold out, is testament to the popularity and desirability of new models in the GMSV portfolio.”
As part of the pre-Christmas introduction, Joanne was able to advise new details regarding the arrival of new right-hand-drive C8 Corvettes.
“The first vehicles from the very first allocation will start making their way to dealerships around Australia and New Zealand in mid-January,” Joanne said.
“There are going to be some super-excited Corvette owners who will be getting 2022 off to the best start possible.
“We will also be in a position mid-next year to start updating plans with regard to the all-new 2023 Model Year Corvette Z06, also available for the first time ever as a factory manufactured right-hand-drive.”
