Nissan to build NV200-based 2015 City Express van for Chevrolet

Article by Anita Panait, on May 16, 2013

General Motors and Nissan have signed an agreement for the Japanese carmaker to build a small cargo vehicle that the American company will market in the United States and Canada. The small cargo vehicle will be dubbed as Chevrolet City Express and will be based on the Nissan NV200.

GM will procure the Chevrolet City Express from Nissan and distribute it through its Chevrolet dealer network starting fall of 2014. Ed Peper, US vice president of GM Fleet and Commercial Sales, remarked that the Chevrolet City Express will strengthen GM’s position with fleets and commercial customers, who have been asking the carmaker for an entry in the commercial small van segment.

Joe Castelli, Nissan vice president for commercial vehicles and fleet, remarked that working with partners to expand markets for its innovative products improves Nissan’s growth and manufacturing efficiency as it leverages the carmaker’s capacity to meet growing demand in the sector. Nissan currently sells the NV200 in several markets around the world, including the US and Canada.

The Nissan NV200 is a roomy-yet-compact commercial vehicle that has received the International Van of the Year Award. Cost of ownership for the Nissan NV200 is among the lowest in the class thanks to low running costs and high efficiency of engines and drivetrains as well as a safety structure that minimizes crash damage.
