Do you think Chevrolet will turn the City Express into a modern Taxi like Ford has done with Transit connect and Nissan has done with City Express' twin the NV200?
I do wonder if Nissan has limited GM's ability to cannibalize their fleet projects? I know that Nissan has a similar agreement with Dacis to use their Duster as the Nissan Terrano, the caveat is that the Nissan may not compete with the Dacia on price. So i wonder if Nissan has said to GM yes you may use the NV200 as your City Express but you're not allowed to infringe on our fleet contracts, like with NYC Taxi....
I've been in one of these taxis and they look really nice. Plenty of leg room.
I don't think that Nissan would allow Chevy to sell the City Express as a taxi though. It just wouldn't make sense since they are the same vehicle, and obviously Nissan wants contracts with cities instead of Chevy. That is probably one of the reasons why nissan agreed to the deal. They get to make some money and to shut out a competitor from a very lucrative market.
