CHICAGO — Nissan North America Inc. has signed an agreement to produce a small cargo vehicle for General Motors Co., which will sell the vehicle in the United States and Canada.

Detroit-based GM will distribute the Chevrolet City Express, based on the Nissan NV200, through its Chevrolet dealer network. GM expects the vehicle to be available in fall 2014.

"Our fleet customers have asked us for an entry in the commercial small-van segment, so this addition to the Chevrolet portfolio will strengthen our position with fleets and our commercial customers," Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of GM fleet and commercial sales, said in a statement.

"Working with partners to expand markets for our products enhances Nissan’s growth and manufacturing efficiency," said Joe Castelli, Nissan vice president for commercial vehicles and fleet.

Franklin, Tenn.-based Nissan already sells a version of the NV200 in the United States and Canada.
