2013 Volkswagen XL1 Hybrid Spied Testing In Spain

Volkswagen XL1 is the third iteration of the Volkswagen 1-litre car that was unveiled at the 2011 Qatar Motor Show.

The diesel plug-in hybrid can achieve a combined fuel consumption of 310 mpg and CO2 emissions of 24 g/km. Power comes from a 47bhp 0.8-litre two-cylinder diesel and a 27bhp electric motor that can work in parallel with the diesel or independently. Range from a full charge is up to 21 miles.

The XL1 weighs just 795kg and its length and width are very similar to the Volkswagen Polo. The height is another thing – the XL1 is just 1,184mm in height and features gull-wing doors.

Top speed is 99mph and 0-62mph comes in 11.9sec.

Back in February, Volkswagen confirmed that it would build a limited series of XL1s starting next year. Volkswagen is currently testing this super efficient vehicle in Spain and we expect to see the production model later this year or in early 2013.
