It is a common misconception that the term wheelbase refers to the length of a vehicle, but this is not true. In fact, it is related to the distance between the centre point of the front wheels and the centre point of the back wheels.
A short wheelbase (SWB) van is a functional load carrier with a load capacity of up to 6m3. It comes with a full width bulkhead, which separates the loadspace from the cabin that can accommodate two to three people. Those versatile and smaller vans feel easier to drive than their larger counterparts, thanks to a better turning circle, making them a great option for moving in inner cities and transporting or delivering white goods and larger items.
