plug n’ stay with hyundai’s IONIQ 5 powered cabin in the woods


take your office off-grid with hyundai

 

what if you could enjoy all the electric amenities of a regular city office but in the middle of nature? this is what hyundai sweden proposes with a project called ‘today’s office powered by IONIQ 5’. the idea combines hyundai‘s electric IONIQ 5 with a compact cabin designed by studio puisto. after driving out to the wilderness with zero emissions, the car can be used as a giant power bank to power other electrical appliances.

 

the project aims to inspire endless possibilities of remote working, which has seen a dramatic increase in the past couple of years, so you can work from wherever you want.

the ioniq 5

 

the IONIQ 5 is the first model from hyundai’s new IONIQ brand dedicated to battery electric vehicles. the car features ultra-fast charging, a 481 km range, and a vehicle-to-load function, meaning the powerful batteries inside the vehicle can be used to power something externally. connected to the cabin, IONIQ 5 gives guests access to wi-fi, sound system, TV, refrigerator, air-sourced heat pump, kettle, espresso machine, and even a toilet.

 

the electric car comes in two battery pack options, either 58 kWh or 72.6 kWh, and two electric motor layouts, either with a rear motor only (RWD) or with both front and rear motor (AWD).

 

‘IONIQ will change the paradigm of EV customer experience. with a new emphasis on connected living, we will offer electrified experiences integral to an eco-friendly lifestyle,’  says andreas-christoph hofmann, vice president marketing & product at hyundai motor europe.

the cabin

 

the 9 sqm timber structure is a version of studio puisto’s space of mind cabin, but instead of a compact bedroom, it’s a remote workplace. produced sustainably by protos demos, the cabin has a modular interior developed in collaboration with furniture brand made by choice.

 

space of mind can be fully assembled on site by helicopter or crane truck, resulting in minimal impact on the surrounding nature. the cabin is made entirely out of organic wood, CNC-machined for a perfect fit and with a larch cladding that covers the full exterior.
