Industry giant Toyota took the wraps off a new self-driving transportation concept, and it’s the pizza delivery van, hotel shuttle, urban taxi, package delivery truck, camper, Etsy store, and food truck of the future.

Called e-Palette, it’s a modular vehicle that can be customized to hold people, things, and even small businesses. In addition to the vehicle itself, Toyota is working with partners like Amazon, Uber, and Pizza Hut to find uses for the self-driving vehicle.
