Nissan-sourced light van available with $700 “Upfit Cash” allowance

A number of automakers are starting to get back into the light van market, aiming their wares at customers not in need of a full body-on-frame transportation solution.

The latest addition to the Canadian market comes from General Motors with a rebadged version of the Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo called the City Express.

Named after the larger van with a similar name, the City Express looks to steal some business from the second-generation (on our shores) Ford Transit Connect and the soon-to-arrive RAM Promaster City. The City Express will do that with a starting price of $25,995.

“We expect the arrival of the new City Express at Chevrolet dealerships to be met with excitement from our existing customers,” said Joe De Stefano, national fleet sales manager, General Motors in Canada.

“This is an opportunity to demonstrate the capability and versatility of the many Chevrolet commercial vehicles that are available to potential customers looking for a vehicle that meets their needs.”

Those looking to upfit their City Express can benefit from a $700 allowance toward additions as part of the automakers Business Choice program. GM will also ship your vehicle directly to the upfitter before it arrives at your local dealer.

The 2015 Chevrolet City Express is arriving at dealers now.
