Volkswagen announced the price of the most fuel-efficient model in the world, the exclusive XL1. The machine promises a fuel consumption of just 0.9 litres / 100 kilometers. All for a peppery price of 110,000 euros.

Volkswagen has promised a total production of 200 units. All 200 units will be built by hand, carbon fiber respecting strict requirements which will bring the total weight of only 795 kg and aerodynamic coefficient, just 0,189 Cx. One of the concessions made for the sake of achieving a coefficient so low was waiving side mirrors. They have been replaced, a first for a production car, with cameras that transmit images to two LCD panels located on the inside of doors.

The German model uses the resources of a plug-in hybrid assembly, composed of a two-cylinder diesel engine and an electric unit. The TDI develops 48 horsepower, while the electrical unit contributes with 27 extra horsepower. The entire assembly is supported by a DSG automatic transmission with seven steps, and a lithium-ion battery that keeps the engine alive with zero emissions. This can ensure a pure electric driving, but only for a distance of 50 kilometers.

The new XL1 also has a few other interesting figures, like an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 12.7 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 162 km / h. Even so, the XL1 is the most fuel friendly series model in the world with a consumption of 0.
liters / 100 km and emission level of just 20 g / km.

The technology of the XL1 will be used in the future on other Volkswagen models. This revolutionary model was built more for scientific purposes to exploit the possibility of obtaining the smallest fuel consumption as possible on a series model.

Production started this fall, in a limited number of 200 pieces at Osnabruck in Germany. The XL1 represents the fulfillment of one of the most important goals of Volkswagen patriarch, Ferdinand Piech, to bring onto the worldwide streets a machine that has need one liter of gasoline to travel 100 kilometers.

Other technical details: it is 1,153 mm high and 3,888 mm long, the king of fuel consumption can boast an average of only 0.9 l / 100 km, as already metioned. The maximum autonomy in electric-only driving mode is 50 kilometers, and the mixed regime of 500 km, despite a small tank that can accommodate only 10 liters of fuel.

The XL1 weighs a grand total of 795 kg. On top of the body structure, that number is made of the drivetrain (227 kg), running gear (153 kg), the interior (80 kg) as well as the electrical system (105 kg). A mere 23.2 percent of the car (184 kg) is built from traditional steel or iron.
Extensive presence of lightweight materials can be felt too, like magnesium in the wheels, ceramics in the brake discs, plus aluminum in the dampers, steering system and brake calipers.
