Toyota is showing a utility van concept called the Urban Utility at the World Maker Faire in San Francisco that reflects "the lifestyle and needs of an entrepreneurial, urban driver," the automaker said.

Toyota revealed the vehicle, known as the U2, at a panel discussion hosted by Make: magazine. The vehicle includes several unique features including a retractable utility rail system for holding a desk or supporting hooks for grocery bags or other cargo. Side windows flip up for easy access from the roadside. A unique shifter design offers an intuitive switch for parking, drive, and reverse mode.

Exterior features include roof panels that retract open, rear glass that can slide into the tailgate, a tailgate that folds down into the ramp, and protective replaceable ridges on the tailgate.
