Judging by that, I'd also guess the production will begin sometime in summer/fall of 2020. That isn't from GM, that is just my guess.

Have you taken any deposits yet?

Also, just curious, are deposits in your state 100% refundable on demand by the customer like they are in California?

I agree. I think it goes on sale sooner as a 2020 model.

Summer 2019 is right now, so that's not happening.

The tour is going to be pre-production, according to Chevrolet, so they won't be building them in January at least.

There is no model year announced, so it is still possible they'll be 2021.

I don't understand. Haven't they already built and sold the last C7? Could it take a year for the factory to change over to the C8?

We have 2 deposits so far. The deposit is only refundable if the vehicle is not altered in any way from the factory condition for the customer, so pre-production deposits are fully refundable.
