We found brand new spy shots of the upcoming VW XL1. Have a look!
VW says that it will be capable of achieving a combined fuel consumption of 0.9 liters / 100 km (261 mpg US or 313 mpg UK) and should have CO2 emissions of just 24 g/km.
The two-cylinder, 800cc diesel engine can produce 47 hp (35 kW) and 89 lb-ft (121 Nm) of torque, sending the power to the rear wheels via a 7-speed DSG gearbox. There’s also the electric motor capable of providing an additional 27 hp (20 kW) and 73 lb-ft (100 Nm) of torque which can either work alone or in parallel with the diesel engine. On electric mode, the VW XL1 should be able to provide a range of up to 35 km (21 miles).
