Volkswagen Unveils 313 MPG XL1 Car at 2011 Qatar Motor Show
While the car’s fuel efficiency is certainly impressive, it is actually not the first time that Volkswagen have released such a car – they also unveiled an ultra-efficient auto at the 2008 Frankfurt Motor Show. However the L1 actually had an average fuel consumption of 1.38 l/100km. The new XL1 concept car is slated to enter production in 2013 and is expected to cost approximately $29,500.
WHY THIS MATTERS
