Volkswagen XL1 Driving VW’s 260mpg hypermiler MSN Autos — Volkswagen XL1

MSN Autos gets behind the wheel of one of the most fuel-efficient cars on the planet. The XL1 is Volkswagen’s take on the future of super-fuel-efficient transportation. With its combination of lightweight construction, hybrid diesel and slippery shape, the XL1 hypermiler delivers a stunning 260 mpg. For the super-fuel-efficient Volkswagen XL1, form follows function. You’d be forgiven for thinking that the aerodynamic little blob is some kind of high-speed bicycle at first glance, but as polarizing as its aesthetics may be, you’d probably be shocked to learn that the XL1 gets more than 260 mpg. Volkswagen pulled out all the stops to build this third iteration of its hypermiler. ...

The Volkswagen XL1: A Possible View of Tomorrow Volkswagen of America Volkswagen says that, going by European standards, the XL1 will get 261 miles a gallon. That may not match up with the American method of calculating fuel economy, but no other manufacturer is making a claim close to that. It will travel 31 miles on its 27-horsepower electric motor, and when combined with its 48-horsepower 0.8-liter 2-cylinder diesel engine, will go more than 310 miles on its 2.6-gallon fuel tank, according to Volkswagen. “The fuel-economy number of 261 miles per gallon is actually translated from the New European Driving Cycle number of 0.9 liters of fuel used per 100 kilometers of driving,” Mark Gillies, ...

VW’s 261 mpg twoseater is a peek at the future NBC News — Volkswagen XL1

VW’s 261 mpg two-seater is a peek at the future By Paul A. Eisenstein, NBC News contributor VW is hoping to develop an image of environmental leadership with products like the 261 mpg XL1 hybrid. Few cars do a better job of turning heads than the little Volkswagen XL1, a 2-seater that might look more appropriate on the set of a science fiction movie than today’s highways. As sleek as the most aerodynamic aircraft and weighing but a fraction of a conventional vehicle, VW’s extreme machine was designed to push the limits of fuel efficiency – the XL1 delivering a mind-boggling 261 miles per gallon. Unveiled as a concept vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show last winter, the overwhelming ...

Volkswagen’s XL1 concept plug-in diesel hybrid has 260MPG fuel efficiency, questionable aesthetics Steaming down the autobahn could be about to get a whole lot more efficient. Volkswagen has carted out its newly updated Super Efficient Vehicle concept, now dubbed the XL1, which — after a great deal of fuzzy math. we’re sure — is rated at a 313MPG fuel efficiency and produces only 24g of CO2 per kilometer traveled. There’s an electric motor and a TDI diesel engine making all the buzzing and roaring noises inside, while the overall body design is focused on making the car as light and as aerodynamic as possible. Volkswagen has achieved a 795kg curb weight by using ...

Tesla Model S demand exceeds expectations 40kWh model nixed — Volkswagen XL1

Tesla Model S demand exceeds expectations, 40-kWh model nixed Comments Add Elon Musk has promised he will make an exciting announcement tomorrow. but Tesla Motors issued two bits of news late last night to add to whatever we’ll learn about on Tuesday. First off, sales of the Model S have exceeded the target provided in the mid February shareholder letter by 250 units. Second, sales of the low-end 40-kWh Model S were so low that the model has been scrapped. In February, Tesla said in a shareholder letter that it expected about 4,500 deliveries in Q1 of 2013. It has instead sold 4,750 and it is thus amending its Q1 guidance to full profitability, both GAAP and non-GAAP. The company ...

Sheffield Hallam University Design and its role in engaging older people — Volkswagen XL1

Design and its role in engaging older people 25 October 2011 People from Sheffield have been talking about their experiences of ageing as part of a global research project, that explores the role design plays in promoting quality of life for older people. Now, organisers of the project are hoping Sheffield’s older people will attend ‘engagingdesign’, an exhibition at Sheffield Hallam University next month, to share their findings before it travels across Europe as part of next year’s European Year of Active Ageing. The research, funded by the British Council under the Prime Minister’s CONNECT programme, has brought together groups of older people in Sheffield ...

First drive 261 mpg Volkswagen XL1 Yahoo Finance — Volkswagen XL1

First drive: 261 mpg Volkswagen XL1 It takes a bit of effort to slip in under the gullwing doors and then wedge oneself into the low-slung seat of the Volkswagen (XETRA:VOW3-DE) XL1. And it’s even more difficult for my co-pilot, as the passenger seat is set slightly rearward, almost tandem-style. The simple reality is that the windswept two-seater isn’t built for comfort. The Volkswagen XL1 was designed for maximum mileage. And we’re not talking something like the mere 50 to 60 mpg of today’s best hybrids, nor the 100 mpg equivalent ratings of some of the latest battery-electric vehicles. No, this diesel plug-in hybrid recently received a mind-boggling rating from ...

VW reveals new 300mpg coupe   Autocar — Volkswagen XL1

VW reveals new 300mpg coupe Volkswagen is set to steal this week’s Qatar motor show with its latest ‘one-litre car’, the XL1 — a diesel hybrid concept that can deliver well in excess of 300mpg. The new car is the third concept built to the vision of travelling 100km (62 miles) on a single litre of fuel. The first two vehicles, introduced in 2002 and 2009, used tandem seating, but the XL1 achieves the goal (or at 0.9l/100km, surpasses it) while looking remarkably conventional. See official pics of the VW XL1 concept — updated with Qatar launch pics The XL1 is powered by an 800cc, two-cylinder turbodiesel powerplant (half a BlueMotion engine), producing 47bhp. It’s supported ...

Volkswagen XL1 If I told you there was a Volkswagen that anyone could buy, but that it would cost £92,000, seat just two, fail to keep up with a Polo, be a nightmare to repair and be available only with left-hand drive, would you want one? Probably not. But what if I then told you that, all unrealistic official figures aside, if you drove the car briskly on a blend of urban and country roads and dual carriageway, it really would return a genuine 120mpg? Would that change your mind? Me neither. But that is the proposition placed before you by the new Volkswagen XL1, a genuine, fully crash-tested production car on sale now, albeit in very limited quantities. VW said it initially planned to ...
