Volkswagen NSF

Volkswagen has signed a letter of intent with Japanese company Toshiba Corporation to work together on the development of electric drive units and power electronics for the upcoming Volkswagen New Small Family range of cars. Also in development are battery systems with high specific energy density for a next generation of electric cars such as the VW NSF or even other VW Group cars like the Audi A1 Sportback Concept.

Volkswagen’s Dr Martin Winterkorn said there is still a considerable amount of R&D to be done until Volkswagen can produce an electric vehicle, one that is emissions-free, affordable, and safe, not to mentioned ready to be produced large-scale.
