Chevrolet released fuel economy ratings for its Nissan-derived City Express cargo van. Rated at 24 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, the 25 mpg-combined City Express gets better highway fuel economy than the nearly identical 2014 Nissan NV200, which is rated at 24 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
General Motors did not break down the reason for the fuel economy disparity between the two vans, but we would guess the Nissan NV200 will see a similar rise in highway fuel efficiency for 2015.
The City Express is Chevrolet’s answer to compact cargo vans like the Ford Transit Connect and forthcoming Ram ProMaster City. Starting at $22,950, the Nissan-powered van can carry a payload of up to 1,500 pounds and offers 122.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
