“Do androids dream of electric sheep” was the 1968 book on which the movie Blade Runner was based. That title gives more than a hint of what is happening in the distant future.

We often write stories about future cars – a future like it is going to happen quite soon. Most of the time it is more a matter of combining one existing tech with another to find a solution to a problem that is not urgent but would be great to solve.

The Nissan NV350 Office Pod

Many of us can work from home now. Yaaai!! Great, except now people think ‘home’, so while you are there, can you paint the spare room and take out the garbage and make supper and . . . But working from work isn’t always great either. Imagine working while avoiding both the home and office.

Meet the Nissan NV350 Office Pod – so far only a concept, but with real-world possibilities. The Office Pod is basically a minibus body kitted out as a mobile office. We know the shape here as the Nissan NV350 LCV cargo van and the Nissan NV350 minibus taxi, but the Office Pod is the second cousin of these workhorses. It is rather more closely related to the Nissan Caravan – not sold here – a compact camper van/RV configured for holidays and leisure.

So now we wrote about the Nissan Magnite Concept car in August and in December we are able to flesh out that story with some actual specs. The Nissan Magnite has just been launched in India, where it will be manufactured for that and international markets.
