Bronco Van Concept by Samir Sadikhov

Vans are popular because they offer functional, usable space. Traditional 4WD vehicles are popular as they offer rugged good looks and go-anywhere capability.

Every so often, a solution arrives at exactly the right time. Long-distance overland travelers have for decades sought an answer to the problem of lightweight, portable mobility.
