A single seat vehicle.
Volkswagen bring us the NILS. An electric car that can speed up to 81mph.
Designed to hold only a single driver, the NILS is simple and functional. Driving stats are displayed through an LCD panel and a nifty bit of technology is included in the form of the PID, or Portable Infotainment Device.
The PID is an interesting bit of pop-in pop-out technology that consists of a navigation system, music, phone and vehicle stats display (such as the battery charge). This device can be snapped in when you're in the car or taken with you as an entertainment/infotainment device when you step out.
The Volkswagen press release uses the word 'micromobility', and we think that this totally fits the case. The creation of this car, regardless of 'concept' status or not shows a prospective path of where urban mobility could go.
How often do you see a single driver sitting in a five seater vehicle?
NILS cuts down on the potentially unnecessary, in space and emissions with interesting innovations like three part roof hinged doors, or even simply in it's size.
I look forward to the micromobility of the future.
