The Volkswagen XL1 production car gets 261 mpg TDI and electric power

This is the ready Volkswagen XL1 plug-in hybrid

The 2013 Geneva Show will highlight one of the unique, exotic and green built AND it s a production model. The XL1 is a hybrid that s capable of 261 mpg providing two passengers with a top of 100 mph. It looks friggin too.

Kind of like a reject a Hollywood sci-fi movie.

If the Volkswagen XL1 can travel up to 30 miles on alone.

The Volkswagen XL1 plug-in is a high tech monster. An two-cylinder turbo diesel engine rated at 47 horsepower is up to a 27 hp electric motor to make plug-in hybrid remarkably All the power is fed through the rear via a seven-speed DSG transmission.

The lithium ion batteries sit between the wheels.

Weighing in at a minuscule lbs, nearly 1,000 lbs than a Honda CRZ, the XL1 is much more conventional in design than the XL1 tandem prototype. The driver and passenger sit side-by-side with the passenger s back several inches the driver s seating position. It to me that there is a bit of storage the driver s seat, but not much else.

Volkswagen has not released proper 0 to 60 mph but 0 to 62 (100 km/h) is reported to in 12.7 seconds. That s in with some smaller hybrids already on the market. of those vehicles offer sweet, gull-wing doors. I expect to see Wesley Snipes pop out Demolition Man .

The sleek shape lends to an outstanding 0.19 drag coefficient. For a of comparison, the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador s coefficient is .33. At  153.1 long, 65.6 inches and 45.4 inches high, the XL1 is much smaller than a CRZ.

There is no word as to Volkswagen will charge for its but word has it that they lease these models and the production run will be limited to 1,000 per year. It s also that, given the complexity of the and vast quantities of money spent researching the XL1, Volkswagen will thousands for each vehicle Much the same way Volkswagen blows a of cash for every Bugatti sold.

No idea if Volkswagen has plans to or lease the Volkswagen XL1 in the United That information, along real pricing may be announced month at the 2013 Geneva Show when it debuts.
