Fitting An Entire Car In A Van


The original van was a huge covered wagon or the front of an army. Time has changed the definition to what it is now to only be a box vehicle.

A modern van is a kind of vehicle used for transporting goods or people.

In English usage, it can be either specially designed cargo vehicle or based on a saloon or sedan, the latter type often including derivatives with open backs (this variation is called a pickup trucks). Vans come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from the classic van version of the tiny Mini to much larger vehicles such as cargo vans and other commercial transport vehicles. Vans run up to about 4 tons and are classified as Light or Medium Duty Trucks (in North America) or Light Commercial Vehicles (in Europe). Similar larger vehicles are Lorries (the word Lorrie is used in UK), and are not known as vans.


The modern word van is a shortened version of the word caravan.

The word van has slightly different, but overlapping, meanings in different forms of English. While the word always now applies to boxy cargo vans, the most major differences in usage are found between the different English-speaking countries.
