Chevrolet City Express goes on sale this fall

Following an agreement between General Motors and Nissan, Chevrolet is planning to offer its own urban utility van, the Chevrolet City Express. Unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show, the City Express will be on sale this fall.

If the Chevrolet City Express looks familiar, it may be because it is actually a Nissan NV200 whose front end has been given the General Motors treatment. The City Express will be reserved exclusively for commercial fleets.

The Chevrolet City Express versatile and customizable cargo area offers 3474 liters of total space. Powered by a four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine developing 131 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque, the City Express boasts a payload of 1,500 pounds.

“The City Express is engineered to carry what’s important to business owners – and do it with cost-effective efficiency and surprising versatility,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet and Commercial.

In order to further improve overall versatility, The City Express’s passenger seat can be folded flat to increase the interior cargo space. In front, a center console offers more storage space for notebooks, pens and other items.

Bluetooth, navigation system, rear-view camera and cruise control are available are standard or optional on the different versions of the City Express. In the United States, it will be possible to service the City Express at any one of the manufacturer’s dealerships which should also be the case in Canada.
