GM to source small cargo vehicle from Nissan for US, Canada markets

General Motors Co. and Nissan announced 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, US Vice-President of GM Fleet and Commercial Sales.

"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," added Joe Castelli, Nissan Vice-President, Commercial Vehicles and Fleet.

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