Volkswagen has officially announced that they WILL produce 250 units of the long awaited Ultra-Efficient XL1!!! VW introduced the XL1 back in 2002 with the idea of going 100 kilometers on 1 liter of fuel. After over 10 years or perfecting/testing, they are finally ready to introduce it to the public. The XL1 is a 1750LBS full carbon fiber bodied car that will get 260 MPG and will be the Worlds most fuel efficient production car. Powering the XL1 will be a 47HP 2-cylinder TDI engine, and a 27HP electric motor. This will push this two-seater from 0-60 in 12.7 seconds and all the way up to a top speed of 99MPH. The XL1 will go a total of 31 miles when solely using the electric motor, and even when using the 2 cylinder TDI it is said to still reach 140MPG. We have been wating for over 10 years for this car and cannot wait to finally see it come to life!
