Volkswagen Builds an Office Chair That Goes 12 MPH

Engineers at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in Norway have built a sporty 5-wheel office chair that drives up to 12 miles per hour. This “utility vehicle” features bespoke Volkswagen headlights, a seatbelt for safety,  a seat heater, signal lights, a touch-screen media center, rear lights, a trailer hitch, and a storage trunk for such office items as laptops or quarterly reports.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in Norway has created and built an office chair with many of the features from their cars. The chair can drive, has LED lights, driver assistance and an infotainment system — finally, office workers can experience something close to what people who use a car in their line of work experience every day. 

Sadly, the chair is not for sale, nor will it ever be put on the market. It will, however, be available to test drive at various locations in Norway.

The chair will be available for test driving in locations throughout Norway in the coming months.
