Volkswagen XL1 plug-in hybrid will be the world’s most fuel-efficient production car
Representing the third evolutionary stage of the German automaker Volkswagen’s 1-liter car strategy, here’s the most aerodynamic production car XL1 which will be impressively produced by handcrafting-like products methods. Set to become the world’s most fuel-efficient production car with a fuel consumption value of 0.9l/100 km as soon as it hits the road, this futuristic two-seater VW XL1 with its plug-in hybrid system can also cover a distance of up to 50 km in all-electric mode and therefore with zero local emissions. Notably, this vehicle is an automotive hero that follows pure sports car design principles, which includes being low-weight and boasting perfect aerodynamics and a low center of gravity, thus giving it the ability to cruise on the road at a constant speed of 100km/h using just 6.2 kW / 8.4 PS. And in all-electric mode, the XL1 requires less than 0.1 kWh to cover a driving distance of over one kilometer.
With this car of the future, built for today, the German automaker Volkswagen is actually redefining what is technically feasible in car making.
The Volkswagen Xl1 has got a one-piece monocell RTM carbonfibre tub, with carbonfibre panels, and a 0.8-liter two-cylinder turbodiesel engine.
Interestingly, this 1-litre fuel economy car from Volkswagen will certainly appeal to the renowned personalities including Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Sergey Brin, Robin Williams, Miranda Kerr, Eric Schmidt, and Natalie Portman, to name a few, which loves driving the fuel-efficient, environment-friendly, hybrid car like the Toyota Prius.
