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.

Volkswagen Type 2 Microbus

The Volkswagen Type 2, also known as the Transporter, Kombi, Microbus, Bus (US) or Camper (UK), is an iconic van introduced in 1949. Popularly connected to the Hippie counterculture movement of the 1960s in America, the spacious Type 2 design gave owners the ability to move large groups of people comfortably and economically even for long-distance road trips. Because of the inherent flexibility of vans and the simplicity of Volkswagen’s design, the Type 2 was large enough to live in and many people further customized both the paint on the exterior and the functionality of the interior for their own needs.

The Volkswagen Type 2 has an overall length of 14’.5” (4.28 m), wheelbase of 7’ 10.5” (2.4 m), width of 5’8” (1.72 m), and height of 6’ 4” (1.94 m).
