Chevrolet City Express gets the ax

Chevy has ended output of its compact professional van.

Chevrolet has determined to give its City Specific do the job truck an early retirement. Immediately after debuting just four a long time in the past, Chevy says the 2018 model calendar year will be the previous for the pint-sized industrial van.

In accordance to Automotive News, Typical Motors knowledgeable its sellers of its system to discontinue the Metropolis Express last year. Production of the tiny van, which was truly a re-badged model of the Nissan NV200 — finished in February.

The Town Specific was a direct response to Ford’s well-liked Transit Link, but the Chevy failed to entice customers in any significant numbers. Considering that likely on sale in late 2014, Chevy has marketed fewer than 30,000 examples of the City Convey. In comparison, Ford sold 34,473 of the Transit Hook up past calendar year by itself.

GM declined to specify why it was killing off the Town Express, but a lack of income was undoubtedly aspect of the motive. GM hasn’t not introduced programs to switch the Metropolis Specific with a new model.
