What are the most versatile vehicles offered by the auto world these days? In our opinion it is undoubtedly vans in all of their variations.
Equip a van with a couple of seat rows in the back and you’ve got yourself a bus, throw away everything and it’s a perfect transportation vehicle for your business, or you can even turn it into a house on wheels. Vans do sound perfect, but is there any way to improve these four-wheelers even further? Well, yes, why not electrify them!
In this episode we will be showing you the latest van newcomers equipped with fully electric and plug-in powertrains that offer environmentally friendly driving, torquey performance and noiseless operation not to disturb the ever grumpier inner city dwellers.
