Everyone loves a good backyard barbecue, but hates the hassle of cleaning up. Now, you can take your grilling on the road as Nissan introduces their Ultimate Smart BBQ Vehicle. Designed in Japan, this is the ultimate electric vehicle for a fun time with friends. This design showcases the power of electric vehicles, as this barbecue car is designed to let you and your friends have a huge barbecue with zero environmental impact. It even comes with ridiculous amenities that could only be from Japan.
This car isn’t available yet. So before your race to you nearest Nissan dealership, the Nissan Ultimate Smart BBQ Vehicle is only a concept car. In a partnership with Nissan and the Japan barbecue Association, the concept car is a project for Green Funding Lab, which is a new Japanese crowdfunding site, like Kickstarter. The idea was first developed by the Awesome Nissan social media project in Japan. They wanted to use the latest Nissan technology to create a new barbecue experience. The car is well on its way to its goal of 1 million yen ($8,355 USD at publication.) Let’s see what they plan to bring to grillers around the world after their crowdfund ends March 31st, 2015.
The smart barbecue is a custom build on Nissan’s e-NV200 electric car. The vehicle will house a 1500W electric barbecue grill that rolls right out from the hatchback trunk. The grilling station even has a built-in sink and garbage disposal to make cleaning up simple and easy no matter where you are.
The grill isn’t the only feature on this smart car, even mosquitos can’t dampen your fun. The Smart BBQ car will keep mosquitoes at bay using an ultrasonic barrier and a projected aroma mist. A hot day will turn extra cool using the built-in refreshing mist shower to keep you cool. Other upgrades range from useful to out of this world, including a Bluetooth linked display screen that is powered by your smart phone and a ridiculous flying selfie camera. Finally, no party would be complete without the Japanese entertainment staple, karaoke. It seems like the Smart Barbecue thought of everything, but we just have one question. Where’s the keg?
