The covid-19 pandemic forced hundreds of millions of people to work from home, and while vaccination drive has started in many parts of the world, many experts believe that the remote working trend is here to stay. But human beings are a social species, and most of us have become tired of being stuck at home and working from our boring bedrooms. Nissan has revealed just the tool one will need if work-remotely becomes a permanent thing. Meet the NV350 Caravan Office Pod Concept, an office on wheels that offers all the creature comforts and hardware to make work relaxing and enjoyable. The mobile office is perfect for those who love to stay close to nature. The concept is a follow-up to Nissan’s e-NV200 WORKSPACe that debuted in back 2016, and it features a long list of styling and functional upgrades over its predecessor.
The Office Pod concept was recently revealed at the annual Tokyo Auto Salon show, which was presented as part of the Nissan Customize 2021 initiative. The mobile office gets exciting textured body graphics with a pattern similar to a golf ball on the outside. Interestingly, the sliding doors are all finished in white, which contrasts the rest of the bodywork that is in black. The van rides on Gram Lights off-road wheels wrapped in BFG all-terrain tires, making it suitable for both on the road and off-road terrains. The van’s highlight is the smartphone-controlled retractable workspace that slides out from the back, giving a panoramic view of the surrounding. It is equipped with a desk, onboard mobile WiFI hotspot, an electric sunshade, coffee maker, and a Herman Miller Cosm office chair. In addition to that, the roof transforms into a lounge area with a retractable umbrella, lounge chair, and ladder. Sadly, the Nissan mobile office is still a concept, and there’s no word if and when it will ever go into production.
