Flying around the office in a Volkswagen…

Car manufacturers are always trying to one-up each other.

With incredible technological advances in recent years, we’ve seen electric cars become commonplace, dashboards change forever, and driving becomes a completely different experience.

But then come the slightly ‘out there’ inventions.

And Volkswagen’s new electric office chair is exactly that.

It’s not quite what people were expecting for the new entry-level electrical model from the German vehicle giant, but it’s certainly got people talking.

It’s not just the fact that the office chair can move at a pretty handy pace that makes it intriguing, though.

Because there’s also a pretty extensive list of features, which even includes a rear-view camera.

Of course, this isn’t something that they intend to mass produce and it’s instead a clever marketing ploy to promote their new range of commercial vans – but that doesn’t make it any less interesting.

Now, if you could pop down to your local furniture store and bag yourself an electric office chair that could propel you to the break room in double-quick time, that’d be pretty tempting, right?

Well, it’s certainly different.

What other inventions can we expect – a Honda motorised desk? A Peugeot stairlift? The possibilities are endless.
