The visionary goal of Volkswagen, stated at the beginning of 2000, was to bring a production car to the market that would be practical in everyday use with fuel consumption of one litre per 100 km. And recently Volkswagen has unveiled the XL1 2014, a car of the future, built for today. The car combines high-tech lightweight design (795 kg) and tremendous efficiency: perfect aerodynamics (Cd 0.189) and a low centre of gravity make it an automotive hero following pure sports car design principles. The XL1 is the most aerodynamic production car ever: 3,888 mm long, 1,665 mm wide and just 1,153 mm tall, just to compare a purebred sports car like today’s Porsche Boxster is 129 mm taller (1,282 mm). The plug-in hybrid system – consisting of a two-cylinder TDI engine (35 kW / 48 PS), E-motor (20 kW / 27 PS), 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG) and lithium-ion battery – all make it possible for the vehicle to emit just 21 g/km of CO2. The XL1, with a top speed of 160 km/h, can accelerate to 100 km/h in just 12,7 seconds. It is also the most fuel-efficient production car in the world, with a record fuel consumption value of 0.9 l/100 km. The two-seater can also cover a distance of up to 50 km in all-electric mode and therefore with zero local emissions. In all-electric mode, the XL1 requires less than 0.1 kWh to cover a driving distance of over one kilometer. The body concept delivers more everyday utility than the two previous prototypes: in the L1 presented in 2002 and in 2009 a driver and a passenger sat in a tandem arrangement for optimal aerodynamics, in the XL1 two occupants sit slightly offset, almost as in a conventional vehicle.
