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

Although not a completely clean transportation solution, hyper-miling vehicles feature lightweight bodies and ultra-efficient engines that are able to run on a single gallon of gas for great distances while producing much less emissions.
