This smart vehicle doubles up as a fully functional mobile office
On the road
For the burgeoning group of global entrepreneurs, co-working spaces are all the rage. Trust Nissan and UK-based design workshop Studio Hardie to rethink the office space for the nomadic business person by rolling out the e-NV200 WORKSPACe — the world's first all-electric mobile office.
"We specialise in creating amazing spaces in unexpected places, but we've never done anything in an electric vehicle before," said William Hardie, designer and founder of Studio Hardie. However, his team has done a pretty good job at transforming the Japanese vehicle into a full-fledged productivity hub. A fold-out desk, touchscreen computer, wireless phone charging point, and LED lights are but a few work-friendly features you'll find beneath the vehicle's panoramic glass roof.
Fancy a break between emails? Crank up your music from the bluetooth-enabled sound system, fire up the coffee maker (which rises from a concealed compartment), and grab a snack from the mini-fridge.
To keep claustrophobia at bay, the 4.3 cubic metre space features two sets of sliding doors and a split rear door that can be opened to let in more light.
The Nissan e-NV200 forms part of the automobile manufacturer's popular zer0-emission range that's capable of reaching an 80 per cent power charge in a mere 30 minutes. An internal mount for a folding bicycle is further nod to the environment, giving users the option to head out on two-wheels.
