The sprint from zero to 100 for the Artega SE was completed in 4.3 seconds, faster than half a second for the Artega GT with a combustion engine. The top speed is at least 250 km / h. VW presents its study VW Nils.
The company Jetcar Zukunftsfahrzeug GmbH presents its newly-developed electric car Jetcar Electro. The small electric runabout where you sit as a pilot in the middle of the vehicle, offers a range of about 250 kilometres on one charge.
