Hyundai announced the launch of its Universe Mobile Office, a variant of its Universe luxury passenger bus for the Korean market that enables teams to remain productive while on the move and at remote locations.

The group collaboration space at the front maximizes collaboration efficiency by arranging a video conferencing system, foldable conference table, sofa seating and custom-made storage.
The personal workspaces in the middle are equipped with premium reclining seats, tables, wireless charging pads, individual entertainment systems and personal storage spaces to create a comfortable environment for work and relaxation in transit.
