GM to Source Small Cargo Vehicle from Nissan for U.S., Canada Markets

PRESS RELEASE

DETROIT and NASHVILLE, Tenn. – General Motors Co. and Nissan announced today the companies have signed an agreement for Nissan to produce a small cargo vehicle that GM will sell in the United States and Canada.

GM will procure the vehicle from Nissan and distribute it through the Chevrolet dealer network. GM expects the Chevrolet City Express, based on the Nissan NV200, to be available for sale in the fall of 2014.

“Our fleet customers have asked us for an entry in the commercial small van segment, so this addition to the Chevrolet portfolio will strengthen our position with fleets and our commercial customers,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of GM Fleet and Commercial Sales.

Joe Castelli, Nissan vice president, commercial vehicles and fleet added, “Working with partners to expand markets for our innovative products enhances Nissan’s growth and manufacturing efficiency by leveraging our capacity to meet growing demand in this space.”

Nissan currently sells a version of the vehicle as the NV200 in numerous markets globally, including the United States and Canada. The Nissan NV200, a spacious-yet-compact commercial vehicle, is a previous winner of the International Van of the Year Award. Cost of ownership for the vehicle is among the lowest in the class due to low running costs, the high efficiency of the engines and drivetrains and a safety structure that helps to minimize crash damage.

The price of the Chevrolet City Express will be announced later.

Looks like a more sensible design than the Ford Transit Connect. Those aren't bad but the body design isn't condusive to parking garages and the cargo area is under 6 feet which makes carrying a standard size step ladder inside impossible.

Actually, the cargo area in the Connect is exactly six feet long at the belt line and a little more on the floor. And, the exterior height is only 6½", so a garage shouldn't be a big issue. The length of the NV's cargo space is about the same but has a little lower roof height.

Don't like it.
Shows GM is still asleep at the wheel. Ford Transit connect has been out for almost 4 yrs now.
