    I have been expecting this - a delivery van - all the time. But not only on the pickup chassis as van's are needed in different sizes. It would be easy to make a smaller van based on the Model X and probably also an even smaller one based on the upcoming Model Y.

    As an illustration here are some smaller BEV vans in use by the Norwegian postal service:

    ... and as a side note: On a van, where the driver may have to stand outside the car and lean into the backdoor to get stuff for delivery in all whether, may be a great place for the FalconWing doors (or something similar), so he/she can stand under a "roof" at least partly protected from rain/snow/sun.

    I have to agree, there is definitely a market for a small Tesla van, about the same size as the Ford Transit Connect.

    As I said to Bjorn Nyland once, his mother should get a Nissan eNV-200 to replace her old VW cargo van. He said she's thinking about it.

    I don't know why Nissan never brought it to North America.

    Tesla would do the eNV-200 one better, since it would have more range and capability.

    I would buy 3 of these to replace our company Connects. We spend $2,500 a month on gas for deliveries. I am sure the market is very high for a Tesla Cargo Van.
