The Volkswagen NILS

Single-seat vehicle concept with wheels, specially developed for in tomorrow’s world.

The NILS a car for the urban world of the future. The electric vehicle represents a and exciting new form of mobility. its progressively designed aluminium body combined with doors and free-standing wheels, the car – which was presented to the public for the time at the Frankfurt International Show (IAA) in 2011 – a dynamic driving experience, generating neither emissions nor Pointing the way into the future, the was supported by the German Federal of Transport, Building and Urban

Electric is changing the whole idea of Electric drive will to completely new concepts for innovative that comply with the requirement constellations more than ever before. One of constellations relates directly to the millions of whom have to to work daily in urban around the world. For a variety of public transport is no longer the choice of conveyance. According to the Statistical Office of Germany, 60 per cent of commuters in Germany by car, with more 90 per cent of these driving A zero-emission vehicle such as the would serve as a new eco-friendly solution for these drivers. The Statistical Office also out that 73.9 per cent of all travel less than 25 on their way to work. Thanks to its of 65 kilometres, the NILS, which has a top of 130 km/h, would be the ideal for most commuters. Indeed, the could well become the of a new era.

The NILS takes up less on the road

Narrower, lower, different. The concept car is very and takes up very little on the road. Only 3.04 long, it is around 50 centimetres than the new up! from Volkswagen. to wheel, it measures 1.39 In spite of its compact dimensions, the meets all the latest safety for modern vehicles. Commuters therefore not only help to environmental pollution but would be very safe in this car in

Design created in Potsdam. important than the dimensions, is the design of the body. In its basic the NILS resembles a Formula 1 driver in the middle, engine at the free-standing aluminium wheels. The alloy wheel rims are with low-rolling-resistance tyres of 115 / 80 (front) and 125 / 80 (rear). The clear, design of the NILS was created in the Design Center in Potsdam. On the one the car had to visually underline the notion of and, on the other hand, it had to be a fun and look futuristic. Although the car concept is completely new for the brand, the is fully in line with the design DNA. The bumpers for it is no coincidence that their collision surfaces are reminiscent of the new up. to the proposal for 2 glazed gullwing it became possible to create transparent surfaces and, make it easy to get into and out of the even in very tight spaces.

The NILS – speedy and nimble

15 kW and 130 Although or indeed because the is so compact and weighs only 460 kg, will find it enormous fun to an agile car with a top speed of 130 that can accelerate to 100 km/h in than 11 seconds. To achieve a mere 15 kW is sufficient for the electric to which energy is supplied a lithium-ion battery with a of 5.3 kWh. A battery of this is comparatively inexpensive and its capacity is for the purpose in question. The research is charged from normal 230 V (maximum charging time 2 or at an electric-vehicle charging station via the located at the back below the light module. Regarding the of the electric drive system, the were able to exploit the pool of experience accumulated by over the years in the development of cars such as the L1 and XL1 as well as of mass-produced vehicles such as the Blue-e-Motion or up! Blue-e-Motion. The rear is the powered axle. All the components of the unit are placed together in an aluminium supporting frame. The including the drive shafts, is into the rear section of the The drive components take up so room that there is space above this for a small but practical luggage (90 l – enough for a crate of drinks and a

Optimum weight distribution. In a such as the NILS; the customer would not only be able to to work effortlessly and soundlessly but also have a lot of fun in doing so, as above. This is because the NILS has a purely mechanical system and a bucket seat in the as in a racing car. When the starts from a standstill, the motor supplies a maximum of 130 Nm, which is transmitted to the rear with the help of a single-speed Double-wishbone axles at the front and the are responsible for wheel guidance and The electronic stabilisation program ESP that the NILS remains on without affecting its agility. The good weight distribution the front and rear axles sure that the ESP has as little to do as

The NILS brakes and accelerates if so required

City Emergency and Front Assist. Another electronic aid on board is Front with the City Emergency The permanently active system the danger of an imminent collision by of a radar sensor in the front VW and brakes the car automatically. Depending on the and situation, the emergency braking can reduce the collision speed in some circumstances, can avoid a at speeds up to 30 km/h.

Automatic cruise control. The Emergency Brake is a software of the Automatic Cruise Control system. The latter’s full of functions is therefore available in the as well. The ACC uses a radar to measure the distance to the vehicle in and the relative speed – parameters to the NILS adapts the speed The driver simply selects the following distance and speed to cruise control). The ACC system is by way of multifunction buttons on the steering and can be used over the entire range of the NILS. Moreover, it brakes the car to a standstill automatically, on the situation. Deceleration is achieved not via the four disc brakes but by means of recuperation. In each the driving circumstances are taken account.

Digital instruments

TFT as instrument cluster. Specially for the electric vehicle, the instrument displays the speed, the flow of (acceleration or recuperation) and the range. It contains indicator lamps.

touchscreen. The second important is a mobile multifunctional talent, the Infotainment Device (PID), to the one used in the new up. situated to the right of the cluster on the A-pillar. Here, the uses the touchscreen to control the functions for navigation, radio, telephone and the on-board computer. Eco is helpful function that the vehicle’s range. When the car is the PID calculates the range and then not shows the route on the map display but indicates the radius and the destinations can be reached with the remaining charge.

Aluminium space frame

Volkswagen Constellation

As safe as a large car. The space frame body, of extruded parts, cast sections and aluminium sheets, has conceived as an extremely effective cell. It endows the vehicle a high degree of stability and even though the car is very The bumpers and the panels of the side among others, are made of weather-resistant plastic.

Wing consisting of 3 parts. The frames of the 2 wing doors are each composed of 3 elements; an outside a reinforced crash layer and an section. When closed, the offer optimum protection in a The door windows are made of scratchproof polycarbonate while the is a piece of laminated safety

Seeing and being seen. and LED elements are used for the headlights, light cluster and indicator At the front, 2 bi-xenon modules as low beam and high beam The indicator lights and the daytime lights are in the form of white and LEDs. The daytime running are located on the front wheel and are simultaneously used as position during parking. In the acrylic of the rear lights – at the sides in the of small wings integrated the rear part of the car –, the light by LEDs is emitted via transparent Power consumption? Minimal, as it be with an electric vehicle.
