  • Publication number: 20190225158
    Abstract: A motor vehicle includes a tailgate that is upwardly pivotable in a rearward upward manner and on which a load compartment cover is pivotably held around a pivot axis by way of the rear end region of the load compartment cover that faces the tailgate. The load compartment cover, in a region that is spaced apart from the pivot axis by way of at least one force transmission element, is held on a vehicle body. The force transmission element, when the tailgate is upwardly pivoted, pivots the load compartment cover toward the tailgate so as to expose an access to the load compartment. At least one hook connection connects the tailgate to the load compartment cover and establishes the pivot axis.
