MO­BILE OF­FICE

Identity - - ECO -

Nis­san has teamed up with UK design work­shop Stu­dio Hardie to trans­form its zero-emis­sion e-NV200 van into the world’s first all-elec­tric mo­bile of­fice.

The e-NV200 WORKSPACe is an in­ge­nious cre­ation fea­tur­ing an in­te­grated fold-out desk, touch­screen com­puter, wire­less in­ter­net, smart­phone-con­trolled LED lights, wire­less phone charg­ing, Blue­tooth au­dio sys­tem, mini fridge and barista-qual­ity cof­fee ma­chine.

It has been en­vis­aged as a cost-ef­fec­tive desk space so­lu­tion that al­lows users to work for free in some city cen­tres of­fer­ing elec­tric charg­ing bays, or to es­cape the city and con­tinue to work in the coun­try­side or on the coast.

Gareth Dun­smore, Di­rec­tor of Elec­tric Ve­hi­cles, Nis­san Europe, said: “The e-NV200 WORKSPACe takes the in­ge­nu­ity of our 100% elec­tric van a step fur­ther and, by en­list­ing the design ex­per­tise of Stu­dio Hardie, the e-NV200 has been reimag­ined as an in­no­va­tive, zero-emis­sion work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

“With prop­erty prices in our cap­i­tal cities at such a pre­mium and the mod­ern pro­fes­sional need­ing to be ever-more mo­bile, busi­nesses will need to think smart and con­sider what the work­place of the fu­ture looks like.

“With hot-de­sk­ing and re­mote work­ing on the rise, it is not too big a leap to see a fu­ture where our ve­hi­cles will be­come con­nected, en­ergy-ef­fi­cient, mo­bile workspaces, and the e-NV200 WORKSPACe project could be­come more than just a con­cept.”
