Volkswagen NILS single-seater concept has decided to join the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show and tries it luck whether it could be continued to the production version or not. We never heard about the Volkswagen NILS before because the single-seater concept was developed as part of VW’s Group Research and pretty much has relation with Audi’s Frankfurt-debuting Urban Concept.

As we mentioned before, the Volkswagen NILS is a single-seater concept for individual transportation – no hitchhikers, please. What do you think about the futuristic exterior of the Volkswagen NILS single-seater concept? The first time we look at the photos, it feels like we have drawn to the Tron Legacy movie set. Anyway, the Volkswagen NILS concept uses an F1-style layout which is definitely emphasizes the single-seater design. The driver will be sitting in the middle of the 3.040mm long, 1,390mm wide, and 1,200mm high action.

Judging by the photos, the Volkswagen NILS single-seater concept is smaller than the most compact VW vehicle – the Volkswagen Up. The Volkswagen NILS single-seater concept carries 17-inch alloy rims and rolls on 115/80 tires at the front and 125/80 ties at the rear.

The electric motor of the Volkswagen NILS single-seater concept is put on the rear part. It has power output around 15 kW (20.4 horsepower) which is more than enough as daily ride. The peak power reaches at 25 kW (34 horsepower) with the torque is at 96 lb-ft. To power the Volkswagen NILS single-seater concept, there is a 5.3 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which Das Auto refers as “relatively inexpensive”. That particular lithium-ion battery pack offers a driving range of 40 miles (64 km).

The Volkswagen NILS single-seater concept is able to hit 62 mph less than 11 seconds and the top speed is 81 mph (130 km/h) and to reach all those figures, it needs two hours to reach a full charge. Das Auto promises that the single-seater concept offers sportscar handling as the Volkswagen NILS concept has no power steering and has a double-wishbone setup for both axles. The complete details of the Volkswagen NILS single-seater concept will be unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.

  1. I do trust all the ideas you’ve presented on your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for newbies. Could you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  2. Well I heard that Saab is saved by Spyker. However, I am also hearing that they are likely to release an exciting new 9-5 for that 2011 model year, that will start production in April 2010. My point is, will this vehicle arrived at Canada and could it be seen in the 2010 Canadian Worldwide Autoshow in Feb? I am worried about this model.

  5. I attempted searching it and it is difficult to find. The commercial was that old Volkswagen vehicle speaking towards the neighbor. The neighbor was washing his vehicle, then your Volkswagen stated something about how exactly great the brand new vehicle was after which it designed a seem of the engine. It requested the neighbor “So how exactly does your hybrid seem?” And also the neighbor just went “Haaaaaa.”

    Anybody know this commercial? Are you able to assist me to think it is?

  6. A 2 prong round piece is linked to some wires in y 1970 Volkswagen Beetle. The writing onto it seems to state “wagner us dot.”

    Where do these wires connect, where will the mechanism go, and just what will it do?
