Mitsubishi’s NOMADPro Canter Truck Concept Puts the "Remote" in “Remote Work”
A 2WD truck, mobile workspace and living space all in one, designed for the most nomadic “digital nomads.”
When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down offices across the world in March 2020, many white-collar workers adjusted to working from home and some loved being away from the office so much that they became “digital nomads,” people who, per Wikipedia, “travel freely while working remotely using technology and the internet.” Now, Mitsubishi has created the ultimate vehicle for these digital nomads through its Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation: the NOMADPro Canter Truck. A concept van that’s a mobile office and living space all in one, the NOMADPro offers workers who refuse to be tethered to one location a chance to make anywhere in the world their office — and their home.
The design’s base is Mitsubishi’s widely used 2WD Canter truck, with a standard driving carriage and a cargo area that’s been converted into a compact live/work space. There’s a workstation that’s large enough to fit two people, a storable table and bench, a movable bed, a tiny kitchen and sink and even a shower room. One of the concept truck’s stated goals was to “harness the healing power of nature,” so the entire right side flips open, enabling its occupants to quite literally get closer to nature.
You can see the NOMADPro Canter Truck’s design features in the gallery and video above. At the time of writing, a price or purchasing information for the truck has yet to be announced as it’s still in its concept phase.
