That's exactly what Nissan has done with its latest concept vehicle, the NV350 caravan office pod. While some RV makers have been catering their builds to the new "work from anywhere crowd," the Japanese automaker has decided to create a full concept office on wheels with the sole purpose of serving as, well, a mobile office.

The NV350 office pod is just one of several concept vehicles Nissan has debuted for the virtual 2021 Tokyo Auto Salon.
With the return to offices still on hold, the Nissan concept van is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a change of views throughout the work week.
The van has all the tools needed for any remote worker, including a workstation and coffee maker.
Unlike most camper vans that have amenities hidden inside the vehicle, the office pod can extend out the rear of the van for some fresh air.
However, for those who prefer to work indoors, the workstation can still be used while it's inside the van.
This retractable office space includes a desk, keyboard, mouse, monitor, and chair.
The best aspects of the concept van are hidden in its details.
For example, the side edges of the pod light up, brightening the workstation when it's dark out.
Designer chair enthusiasts will be happy to see the concept van's Cosm chair by Herman Miller.
Looking down, the floor of the workstation is polycarbonate.
This flooring is transparent, providing views of nature below the digital nomad's feet, according to a report by New Atlas.

However, the office space's floor isn't the only one that received an upgrade.
When a black light hits the carpeted floor mats, a pattern of the word "caravan" is revealed.
The van also comes with electric shades for more privacy …
… and a UV light in the glove box to help sanitize any items, a handy feature to have during the coronavirus pandemic.
For the caffeine addicted workers who demand a morning cup of coffee, the concept van also has a coffee maker.
This coffee maker is then powered by the van's inverter.
Work breaks can be taken outdoors on the roof of the van, which has a lounge chair, side table, and umbrella.
The concept's off-road capabilities and all-terrain tires give digital nomads more freedom to choose where they want to work for the day.
