Volkswagen XL1 to be launched this year

by SpeedLux

The Volkswagen XL1 has been secretly photographed ahead of this year’s possible launch.

Its confirmed that VW is quite sure about putting the prudent XL1 into production as the sample of the company’s most fuel efficient car’s secret is out.
This one is the successor to the L1 revealed in 2009 and the Formula XL1 exhibited in 2011 at the Qatar Motor Show.

The German auto major has previously mentioned that the car will give an impressive 261 mpg (313 mpg UK or 0.9 liters / 100 km) and have CO2 emissions of only 24 g/km.
Power will come from a 2-cylinder, 800cc diesel generating 47 hp (35 kW) and 89 lb-ft (121 Nm) of torque.
It will send power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed DSG gearbox.

There will also be an electric motor producing 27 hp (20 kW) and 73 lb-ft (100 Nm) of torque. It can function together with the diesel or on its own, providing the XL1 a 21 miles (35 km) range in electric mode. The vehicle will have a drag coefficient of 0.186 and will weigh about 1,752 lbs (795 kg).

0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) should take 11.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 98 mph (158 km/h).

We have the engine specifications but the car performance and its salient features are yet unknown.

So stay tuned and do not forget to browse the pictures.
