Gallery: City Cars Reign Supreme at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show

Another open-wheel concept from the Volkswagen brands. The NILS concept from VW is an all-electric commuter car with a similarly tiny trunk and efficient lithium ion battery. We love how automakers are exploring the possibilities of two-seaters, or 1 + 1 toggled seating arrangements, in city cars to maximize efficiency.

With even suppliers focusing on plug-in electric vehicle technology and other green propulsion systems, this has truly been the year of the city car so far at Frankfurt. But the show isn’t over yet. We’ll be sure to bring you more future tech photos as more visions of our sustainable transportation future are unveiled in Germany this week.
