Volkswagen Nils car was developed by Volkswagen together with the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development. In fact, according to the calculations of statisticians from the ministry, the need for such a machine a long time is ripe!
The fact that the statistics say, if 74 percent of motorists agglomerations of Berlin and Munich for a day pass up to 25 kilometers. And 90 percent of all car owners in these cities go to their cars alone.

And it is quite clear! After all, it is designed only for one driver of the passenger in it! He is very narrow (width slightly wider than a bicycle wheel), and lightweight – only 460 kilograms of weight (due to the aluminum frame and casing).
