Volkswagen had a huge surprise for automotive enthusiasts at the IAA show in Hannover this week as the brand debuted their Tristar truck concept.

Celebrating the 30th birthday of the original Vanagon Syncro, this model is based on the T-series vans. More than your average truck, VW compared this bad boy with a Swiss Army knife – showcasing its ability to tackle any terrain while offering up plenty of storage space and functioning workstations (20-inch foldout tabletop tablet, espresso machine and more) that help this thing serve double duty as a mobile workshop. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter TDI inline four cylinder putting down 200-horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. Power is delivered to all four wheels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. This thing was built for the backcountry roads, but it’s still fully capable on the asphalt as well. The pickup achieves a 0-62 mph time of 10 seconds, and is capable of reaching a top speed of about 115 mph.
