The zero-emission car took part in the 2010 Shell Eco Marathon in the “Urban Concept Cars” segment and was awarded the Autodesk Design Award for its outstanding design and ergonomics. Nios developed by a team of students and professors at three German universities is fully working prototype of a hydrogen-fueled city car. The car’s framework weighs just 18.5kgs and the total weight of the vehicle has been restricted to just 400kgs to better its fuel efficiency. The car is powered by a DV electric motor that runs on an advanced hydrogen fuel cell system, so it manages a whopping 500 Km (310 miles) with just a single litre (0.26 gallons) of fuel.
