Ford’s newest full-size cargo van, the Transit, is an excellent example of maximizing space in an economical and efficient manner. Of course, powertrain refinements and improved material quality are all very good for the van segment, but what really makes a full-sizer full-size is the amount of junk one can efficiently carry. In the case of the Transit, 487 cubic feet of space is afforded by the rear cabin.
While this is indeed a rather large number, sometimes it’s difficult to give a scale to the size of things. So, in an attempt to display just how commodious the Transit’s 487 cubic feet space really is, Ford decided to use the world’s smallest automobile. The vehicle in question is the Peel P50 — a tiny vehicle capable of transporting just about nothing except for one (regularly-sized) person.
While the Peel P50 may not serve much of a purpose in real-world circumstances, it’s actually rather useful as a space tool. As shown in the video below, this microcar is capable of performing a myriad of three-point turns to position itself inside the Transit in a hair under two minutes, proving just how usable nearly 500 cubic feet of space can be.
