Working on the road will never be the same if Nissan of Europe has its way.

The car company has released a host of pictures for its concept car - the Terranaut.

The 4x4, according to the company, was designed for “scientists, geologists, archaeologists or adventurers” whose office is the great outdoors.

It seats three people in an interior quite obviously modelled after a U.S.S. Enterprise shuttlecraft.

The “spherical laboratory” is accessed from a seat that swivels 360 degrees to give any intrepid scientist access to all of the vehicle's workstations.

Those workstations leave room for only one passenger-side door, while the driver's side has two swing-out doors with no b-pillar.
