It can make your office hours more bearable.

Volkswagen has been hands-on in innovating technologies to make customers' lives more convenient such as the new advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features introduced in the ID.Buzz electric vehicle. Now, it seems like the German automaker is also busy developing non-car tech with the new all-electric office chair.

The designers behind the VW office chair

The all-electric Volkswagen chair aims to make the day of office workers more amusing. To make it a Volkswagen, the product comes with features inspired by VW cars. Looking at the brochure, it appears like the chair isn’t taking any compromises in terms of features.

Like a true Volkswagen, users can drive the chair with a top speed of 20 km/h. Considering that office spaces are generally narrow, moving faster than the rated top speed isn’t ideal. Meanwhile, the estimated range is 12 km, which should be more than enough even for a week or two of usage.

The design team integrated LED lights as the main feature of the exterior, providing a recognizable VW appeal. It also has multi-colored Office Party Lights. According to the brand, the lighting system can make office hours livelier, especially for those who find themselves working overtime.

For practicality, the chair is equipped with an actual trunk in the back with five liters of space. It can store stuff like a laptop, quarterly reports, and other documents relevant to an office job. Other features of the product include a rearview camera, sensors on all sides for safety, a seat heater, signal lights, and a stereo.
