Volkswagen NILS Single Seater EV Concept

NILS is compact and lightweight (460 kg), it is a lot of fun to drive. It has a top speed of 130 km/h, and it can accelerate to 100 km/h in less than 11 seconds.

This is accomplished by an electric motor with a reasonably small 15 kW nominal power and short-term peak power of 25 kW. A lithium-ion battery supplies the electric motor with energy. The battery capacity (5.3 kWh) enables driving ranges of up to 65 km, depending on the style of driving. A battery of this size is relatively inexpensive, and its capacity is sufficient for this type of car. The research vehicle can be charged either via a conventional 230 Volt electrical outlet (maximum charging time 2 hours) or at an electric vehicle charging station. The plug port is located at the back underneath the rear lighting module.
