Nissan recently collaborated with UK-based Studio Hardie to turn its emissions-free van into a tiny mobile office space. The e-NV200 WORKSPACe is the first all-electric traveling office in the world, complete with a fold-out desk, wi-fi, a Bluetooth audio system, a mini-fridge, and a fancy espresso machine. The electric vehicle can reach an 80 percent charge in just 30 minutes, and daylight pours into the workspace through a panoramic glass roof, illuminating the bright color scheme inside.
The e-NV200 WORKSPACe concept meets all the needs of the worker who hates to be stuck in the office. LED lights controlled by your smartphone, wireless phone charging capabilities, and a touchscreen computer make the tiny space incredibly user-friendly, while a mount for a foldable Brompton Bike allows gives workers the option to hit the trail during breaks.
The space is equipped to handle one person or two co-workers on laptops with mounts for two desk chairs. Alternatively, sitting outside on the pull-out floating desk gives more room and a front row seat to the natural surroundings. A central console contains a drawer-system mini-fridge and wireless smartphone charging dock and the fold-down desk reveals a touchscreen computer, wireless mouse and keyboard, and plenty of storage for office supplies.
Nissan’s electric van combines the best from its Leaf and NV200 models into a vehicle which can run on just £2 per 100 miles. The e-NV200 WORKSPACe technology and design can be seen as an attempt to keep up with the amount of co-working and hot-desking spaces around the globe, which grew 36 percent in 2015. A few years from now, we could see several electric, mobile workspaces popping up closer to home.
