This is so cool – a VW that got about 235 miles on one gallon of diesel fuel. Check it out!
Unfortunately, you can't buy one at your local dealership, nor is VW likely to make any money off this vehicle. However, it is a demonstration of capability that can hopefully be leveraged in a profitable way and available to the everyday consumer!
I love how th author sums it up: "Do you want one? You bet you do. The XL1 is a new breed of supercar, one that is every bit as extravagant, technical, beautiful and exotic as a Lamborghini or a Ferrari, but that points to a new kind of world where we understand that natural resources are finite and precious, and maybe a new style of driving where we try to conserve them."
