A minivan, also known as a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV), people carrier, and people mover, is a vehicle that has an unibody construction, high-roof design, as well as four or five doors including a hatchback. The 1936 Stout Scarab is often referenced as the first minivan. In the following years the popularity of the minivan increased. The year 2000 marked its highest selling point with 1.4 million units sold. A minivan’s interior has two or three rows of seats to provide passenger comfort. Typically, the seats can be reconfigured or removed to create extra space for cargo. Generally, minivans carry V6 engines, power sliding doors, adequate fuel economy, family-friendly features, and an all-wheel or front-wheel drive.
