The van has made a tremendous impact on American society over the years. Have you ever wondered how the working van has evolved? The first real four-wheeled vehicle that allowed the carriage of several people and goods was the horse and cart in the 1800s. Following that was the Tatra 12 Van which featured four speeds plus had reverse and drum brakes on all wheels. Then the iconic camper van first appeared in the 60s and allowed for the transport of both cargo and passengers. In 1983, Chrysler introduced the first minivans to the United States. Finally, the electric van appeared in 2010 which allowed businesses to reduce their carbon foot-print and overall carbon dioxide emissions with their work van.
