Top Gear Top 40: The London Race - Car vs Bike vs Boat vs Public Transport

Good morning commuters!

It’s Friday so whether you’re commuting by car, train, bike, or boat have a safe one and a good one. There will be more Top Gear clips to watch when you get home tonight.

VW’s Formula 1-like “Nils” Electric City Car

This is “Nils”, Volkswagen’s fully electric, lightweight “go-kart” concept. It’s a single seat vehicle that you sit in like, well, a go-kart or a Formula-1 race car:

Volkswagen has announced that it will showcase this little EV concept dubbed ‘Nils’ at the Frankfurt motor show. It is posited as a solution to the hordes of German commuters making journeys of around 15 miles. As such, the Nils gets a 20bhp electric motor (with a peak 34bhp) powered by a lithium-ion battery, enabling a zero-emission drive of up to 40 miles, a 0-62mph time of under 11 seconds and a top speed of 80mph.

It’s part VW Up and part Minority Report. So what do you think? Would you drive one of these for short commutes?
