LONDON: Nissan has collaborated with UK-based 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.
This professional office environment on wheels features 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.
The e-NV200 WORKSPACe concept has a range of up to 170km on a single charge.
The e-NV200 WORKSPACe offers a cost-effective desk space solution allowing users to work for free in some city-centers that offer free EV charging bays, or escape the city altogether for the countryside or coastal fresh air.
On the the e-NV200 WORKSPACe, if the weather is fine, both side sliding doors can be opened, together with the split rear doors, to create a more open working atmosphere.
At the rear, a clever floating deck can be pulled out to provide an outdoor area from which to take a phone call, work from a laptop or just admire the view of your surroundings.
Inside the e-NV200 WORKSPACe are two chrome and leather desk chairs, anchored to the van's oak flooring on custom mounts.
"The Nissan e-NV200 is already a smart, sustainable transport solution for forward-thinking businesses, making it the ideal vehicle to be used as the basis for a mobile work place," said Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles, Nissan Europe.
The e-NV200 WORKSPACe can be rapid charged from empty to 80 percent power in just 30 minutes, and for those times when you want to leave the office parked and charging up, there's an internal mount for a folding Brompton Bike, allowing users to make short trips around the city or complete the "last mile" of any journey.
Nissan has to date, sold more than 250,000 electric vehicles worldwide.
