This is the story of how a niche-creating car is created; engineers, planners, and designers started arguing over designs ten years before the first van left the factory, and executives rejected the idea at least twice. This book dives into the reasons behind their decisions, electric and natural-gas versions, concepts, and assembly plants as it follows Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth minivans through corporate upheavals, new generations, and serious competition from GM, Ford, Toyota, Nissan, and Honda, right into the present day.
