GM Announces Plans to Resell Nissan Van

General Motors has announced that it has entered the competition in the small van market with a new version of a commercial vehicle produced by Nissan. Chevrolet will call the van the City Express and it's a revised Nissan NV200 van. The Nissan and Chevrolet tie up will help the two companies compete against Ford with the success of its smaller Transit Connect van used by businesses around the country.

Chevrolet will sell the van to individual customers and fleet buyers. Individual customers who use these vehicles typically own businesses doing things such as delivering flowers, plumbers, or contractors. This is a new segment for GM to compete with Nissan and Ford.

USA Today reports that Ford created the segment with its popular Transit Connect that is sort of like a combination between a car and a truck. The Chevrolet version of Nissan van gets an entirely new front end design and a five-year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
