The Chevrolet City Express has been discontinued, GM Authority has confirmed with Chevrolet officials.
Dealers can no longer place orders for the compact commercial van, and 2018 was the last model year of the vehicle – putting an end to the only product in the Bowtie Brand’s lineup that – Chevy badges notwithstanding – carried zero Chevy/GM parts content or DNA.
Notably, the news comes just as we learned that the 2018 Chevy Bolt EV is getting a new Rear Seat Delete package that removes the vehicle’s rear seats and classifies it as an incomplete vehicle. The development could be a coincidence. Alternatively, Chevy could also be looking at the Bolt EV with the K1T Rear Seat Delete Package as a replacement for the City Express.
About Chevrolet City Express
The Chevrolet City Express is a compact commercial van that was introduced for the 2015 model year. The vehicle was sourced from Nissan, reminding us that badge engineering in the “New GM” is alive and well, since the City Express is a Nissan NV200 panel van with Chevrolet logos and zero GM/Chevy parts content or development input.
