European automakers are warming up to the idea that the future involves a lot of battery-powered cars, whether they like it or not.
There aren't a lot of cars out there that have more doors than seats. Usually it's the other way around, but that's what Volkswagen has in store with the Nils concept. The tiny one-seater packs two polycarbonate gullwing doors (plus a rear hatch) in a unique shape that envisions a future mode of transportation for European commuters.
Following in the footsteps of its luxury automotive subsidiary Audi, word has leaked about Volkswagen has unveiled its latest electric concept. Called the Nils, VW's electric single-seater will make its official world debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, which kicks off in mid-September.
