Vans are classified as “motor cars and other motor vehicles principally designed for the transport of persons (not greater than 10 people) with a cylinder capacity greater than 1,500 centimeters cubed but less than 3,000 centimeters cubed” under HS Code 8703.23. The automotive industry in Australia is currently experiencing a boom.
