First post on a.net after many years of lurking. So here it goes.
Volkswagen's XL1 is going into production. The XL1 is a diesel hybrid, sipping just .9 liters every 100 km (261 mpg ). The two cylinder diesel motor produces only 47hp. Transmission is a seven speed dual-clutch. Electric motor is 20kW. 0-60 in 12.7 seconds, which is not too bad for a hybrid. Top speed around 100 mph.
