Work Anywhere With The Nissan NV350 Caravan Office Pod Concept

Working from your car has never sounded so liberating thanks Nissan’s latest concept. Based on the NV350 Caravan, the “Office Pod” is the perfect business camper for the pandemic.

Sick of working in your cramped office, hunched over a desk, sat on a kitchen chair? Miss your commute? Tired of the view at home? These problems and more can be solved by the Office Pod, unveiled ahead of the virtual 2021 Tokyo Auto Salon.

The interior has a desk and office chair that both slide out of the rear of the vehicle. These are finished in a very modern and officey white and they slide out under the hatch to provide more room inside the NV350 Caravan, as well as a (hopefully) lovely view outside.



With a couple of steps that can be placed next to the sliding door, getting in and out of the Office Pod is easy. It also looks like there’s a kettle for tea or coffee, which – is it really an office if it doesn’t have coffee-making facilities?

The best feature, by far, though is the sun deck up top. Complete with parasol and wicker lounger, it’s the perfect place to escape to for your lunch break, or after a long day of sliding you heavy office out of the back of your NV350 Caravan.

The only thing it doesn’t seem to come with is coworkers who will steal your lunch out of the fridge and say they never saw it while sipping coffee out of your favorite mug.



The exterior, though, is covered in a vinyl wrap, giving the NV350 a more office-like finish.

Although this is just a concept that would probably have more than a few flaws in real life (I guess you’d need to work at a campsite or a truck stop?), the fantasy of this is pretty appealing right now. Who wouldn’t want to be able to escape their house and spend the day ignoring a lovely park or along the water while you finish those TPS reports? Hook up some wifi and send me off into nature.

Actually pretty cool. Way better than some of the rigged up work vans I've seen.

Working in a van would make me feel like an undercover FBI agent. Or a criminal mastermind scoping out a heist

I’d want the vinyl wrap to be like a rusty work van with a fake plumbing company on the side.

It would have to be a real secluded area because gawkers would drive me crazy and I wouldn’t be able to get any work done. 

Might as well put a folding chair in your trunk and bring a laptop and hot thermos.

If it was a 4x4 van, you could drive it to the top of a mountain and work.

After being on some conference calls with coworkers who have young kids and, apparently, no home office, I can think of some people who might appreciate it.

Just abandon the kids and find some nice peaceful park?
