2011 Volkswagen Formula XL1 debuts in Qatar

Essentially the latest in a long line of "one-liter" cars, the XL1 is a symphony of technology and efficient engineering. How efficient, you ask? It has an average fuel consumption of 0.9 l/100 km (261.3 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 24 g/km. To get these record-shattering numbers, the XL1 is equipped with a 47 hp (35 kW / 48 PS) 800 cc two-cylinder TDI engine and a 27 hp (20 kW / 27 PS) electric motor that draws power from a lithium-ion battery. Connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the 795 kg (1,753 lb) concept accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.9 seconds, before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 160 km/h (99 mph). More importantly, the car can be driven in EV mode for a total of 35 kilometers (21.7 miles).
