VW XL1: Will go into limited production!


The efficiency benchmark VW XL1 has been confirmed to go into limited production.

German source Automobilewoche is reporting that executives Ferdinand Piech and Martin Winterkorn both confirmed that the car will be produced in small numbers, first for Germany and later coming to the US and China. It’s powered by a diesel engine with less than one liter of displacement, managing 313mpg combined (that’s Imperial, 260mpg using American units) putting out just 48hp and thankfully assisted by a 27hp electric motor.
