· As well as the powertrain, the XL1’s and manufacturing techniques enable it to these record-breaking figures

· The overall length (3,888 mm) and (1,665 mm) are similar to those of a yet its height (1,153 mm) is close to of a Porsche Boxster (1,282 mm)

· Volkswagen developed and patented a new for the manufacture of the Carbon Fibre Polymer (CFRP) parts on the car the Resin Transfer Moulding process allowing the material to be for series production

· The monocoque, all body parts as well as elements such as the anti-roll are made of CFRP. This allows the XL1 to be both extremely and therefore safe but also light
