According to workplace design expert Alan Hedge of Cornell, most people say their top source of distraction at the office is the man-made noise (coughs, talking, etc) co-workers make.

At the office Nissan just designed, noise may be a distraction, but it'll probably be coming from car horns.

Built with help from UK-based design firm Studio Hardie, the e-NV200 WORKSPACe is a modern office on wheels with enough room for a fold-out desk, a pair of chrome-and-leather chairs, a console that makes gourmet coffee and a pull-out deck that provides a small outdoor area.

In addition to sprucing up the mobile workspace with a panoramic glass roof and an oak floor lit by LEDs, the van has a wireless charging dock, a Bluetooth speaker and a hideable mini-fridge.

The one-off electric van has  a 106-mile range and could theoretically save money on gas as well as rent. “With property prices in our 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,” said Nissan Europe e-vehicles director Gareth Dunsmore.

The van isn’t on the market yet, but Dunsmore did say it might end up as “more than a concept.”
