This kind of looks like how they solved that (if it does swing open from left-to-right), a hinge / pivot point that's further out than the light:RE: the rear door.
It sure looks like the door and glass are two different pieces. It also looks like the glass wouldn’t clear the taillights if it swung in the same direction as the door.

HelloI think you're spot on. Looking at all the pics and the video, there is definitely a bump out right there above the tail light. It's not a handle, but rather it extends outward so that the hinge can allow the window to swing and clear the tail lights. Very confident that's it.
Now the question is, does the entire back swing out as one or are the door and glass separate. Maybe there's an option for either. Having to swing out the door then swing out the glass would be a pain to do every time. It's one thing on just fling open the door and throw up the glass in a wrangler. Given the size of that door, it'd be a bit of an inconvenience to have to swing both open independently.
That's an interesting point, maybe? Maybe the lower section is braced/hinged up higher too?I bet $20 that it's 1 panel, because too heavy to have the tire on 1 hinge
There's definitely something up with the rear window though, it's framed, it has that huge, funky hinge-like component to the right.There go my hopes of having that glass be able to retract into the tail gate à la 4 runner.
