The ultra-efficient Volkswagen XL1 will go into production in limited numbers from mid-2013
The Volkswagen XL1 has been spied undergoing further winter testing in Scandinavia, ahead of the production car's launch later this year.
The original concept was revealed 11 years ago, when VW showed a prototype car that could travel 100 kilometres on one litre of diesel, or the equivalent of 282mpg. A two-seater L1 roadster was previewed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2009, and in 2011 it appeared again named as the XL1 at the Qatar Motor show. This latter car returned 310mpg from its 800cc two-cylinder diesel engine.
