A van is a type of vehicle. A van can carry either goods or people. A van is usually bigger than the regular sized car. Panel vans (= vans whose cargo space has no side windows) are used for deliveries and carrying goods. These usually have large cargo space and few windows. A van which is used to carry people is often called a minibus. It can usually carry many people, sometimes up to a total of 15.
A minivan is smaller and usually carries up to seven people.
The demand for minivans is dwindling due to the introduction of crossovers. However, some companies still make minivans.
