Mazda van is a type of road vehicle used for transporting goods or people. Depending on the type of van it can be bigger or smaller than a truck and SUV, and bigger than a common car. The Mazda Bongo is a van manufactured by the Japanese manufacturer Mazda since 1966. It has been built with rear-, middle as well as front-mounted engines. It also formed the basis for the long-running Kia Bongo range. It is named for the African Bongo, a type of antelope. Mazda introduced its small van, the Bongo, in May 1966. It featured a rear-mounted 782 cc water-cooled OHV SA 4-stroke engine driving the rear wheels. The rear-engined Bongo was produced in two versions from 1968, as the F800 was joined by the bigger-engined F1000. The rear-engined Bongos had a full chassis and were very strong and due to the low gearing, able to carry half a tonne. Due to rust and poor maintenance, these Bongos are now rare.
The next Bongo van appeared in September 1977. It was a mid-engine rear wheel drive vehicle. Ford sold this version of the van as the Ford Econovan. The original version has round headlights and no grille; after a facelift the second generation Bongo/E-series had rectangular headlights and a more traditional grille. This took place in January 1981. The Bongo was redesigned in 1983 with new engines. It was also sold by Ford in Asia as the "Spectron" or as the "J80". A new long-wheelbase version known as the Bongo Brawny was also introduced, three months before the regular Bongo. The Brawny was larger than the regular Bongo in by all key measures (wheelbase, length, width, height, and weight). In export markets, this model was again sold as the E-series.
