Mazda released details of a new Freestyle Cab version of the BT-50 Pick up truck, to be unveiled at the Australian International Motor Show in July.

The Freestyle cab is Mazda’s fancy way of saying the truck has reversed-hinged small doors. They call it revolutionary, but as far as we can work out they’ve been on around since 80 years ago! BT-50’s system is the same as the RX8’s and provides a a 1,408mm-wide opening. The rear seat cushions can be removed and with the rear access panels opening to an angle of nearly 90 degrees, offering the option of loading and storing cargo into the rear seating area.

Mazda BT-50 Freestyle Cab has an overall cargo volume of 1,453 litres. This is an increase of 266 litres over the equivalent current model.

Mazda Australia managing director, Doug Dickson, points to the significance of this global unveiling. “Just as we were delighted to be given the privilege of hosting the global debut of the All-New BT-50 Dual Cab in Sydney last year, we are equally delighted to be hosting the global debut of the Freestyle Cab in Melbourne this year. With Australia expected to be the largest market for the All-New BT-50 it’s no coincidence that we’ve been asked to host not one but two global unveilings of this important new model. It’s only appropriate that the Australian public see it first.”
