The Luton van is a form of box van usually custom built by professional body shops onto a van chassis cab. The body of the Luton van often extends of the cab area to provide extra storage space and often that extension is aerodynamically designed to help make travel more efficient, cutting down on wind resistance. Lutons body is usually very thin - reinforced plastic/fibreglass. A very strong and extremely lightweight material, making the van much lighter than panel vans of similar size.
This is a crucial advantage to the Luton. It has more space and more importantly it can carry more cargo weight as the body of the vehicle itself is lighter on the chassis.
