This VW Gets You 313 MPG..

27 01 2011

Via Auto Express..

The Volkswagen XL1.. the company’s third generation high efficiency vehicle.. now brings you over 300 miles per gallon..

Even with a standard/wider side by side seating configuration (versus predecessors’ narrower jet-fighter fore and aft seating).. It manages to stay slippy by staying nice and low to the ground..

Combine this with lightweight materials.. Airstream management.. And a diesel/electric powerplant.. And you get the magic mileage numbers..

Will this car or a near variant hit our roads soon? I’m hoping sooner.. Than later..

Here is some more info on the XL1..
