If you’re a soccer fan you know the UEFA Champions League Final is on Saturday and you probably know Nissan is one of the major sponsors of Europe’s greatest club competition.
The Japanese carmaker has decided to mark the event with a show car based on the e-NV200 electric van. Called Part-e-Van, the vehicle is essentially a mobile disco which will be displayed outside Berlin’s Olympiastadion ahead of the final.
Among the unique van’s features there’s a disco ball solar panel array on the roof which absorbs daylight to power some of this one-off vehicle’s gimmicks, as well as an augmented reality system where users “will be able to jump into their own party scene before sharing it with friends on social media.” Obviously, a custom-made sound system is at the heart of the Part-e-Van, which is also capable of throwing silent disco parties.
Other features include a DJ booth on the roof, a cocktail maker which will supply electric-inspired cocktails, two independent augmented reality screens on the side panels of the vehicle, an LED dance floor at the back of the vehicle, a fridge for drinks and a six meter high light-up canopy.
Following its debut in Berlin, the Part e-Van will go on a European road show with its second stop scheduled for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. “The Part e-Van sums up what Nissan is all about – innovation and excitement for everyone. And what better place to showcase the ultimate party van, than the UEFA Champions League Final, one of the greatest sporting events on the planet,” said Bastien Schupp, Vice President of Marketing for Nissan Europe.
