Think of the Toyota FT-4X Concept as a giant toolbox on wheels, and a mini camper at that. Featuring a rear hatch capable of opening both horizontally and vertically, tie-down bumper / roof hooks, color-coded storage boxes, and a large cargo area for your gear.

“The rear ‘multi-hatch’ can open two ways: horizontally in ‘urban’ mode, and vertically in ‘outdoor’ mode. ‘Urban’ splits the hatch in half and makes for easier curbside gear loading when clearance is limited. ‘Outdoor’ opens the one-piece hatch upward, creating an impromptu shelter from the elements. A rotatable handle that users turn to select its opening mode, providing a satisfying mechanical touch. The deeply set handle is capable of being gripped by a gloved hand when loading, or unloading while snowboarding, or when out-and-about on a winters day,” reports Design Boom.
