Volkswagen has revealed a cool electric concept vehicle, by the name of NILS, just ahead of its Frankfurt début. Reminiscent of Audi’s 1+1 go-kart-like urban concept, the 3.04 metre long single seater model has a range of 65 km (40 miles) and a top speed of 130 km/h (80 mph), and Volkswagen sees it as the perfect commuter vehicle.

Drive to the rear wheels comes from an electric motor with a modest 15 kW nominal power and short-term peak power of 25 kW, which is driven by a 5.3 kWh lithium-ion battery. The aluminiun-bodied NIL’s lightweight 460 kg design makes the most of that power, allowing a sub-eleven second 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time. The battery can be charged either via a regular 230-volt outlet in under two hours or at an electric vehicle charging station.
