2014 Volkswagen XL1 Hybrid

Better fuel consumption certainly seems to be the priority for many of the top auto makers, and no one does this better than the 2014 Volkswagen XL1.

The vehicle sports a body that is rather unique considering it definitely looks like your typical hybrid, but with design cues taken from the Audi R8. Either way it’s not the aesthetic appeal that is the XL1’s strong suit, cutting down on the gas bill is. This hybrid vehicle features a 27 horsepower electric motor paired with a 47 horsepower two-cylinder engine. Yeah you read those numbers correctly, and yes they are rather weak. So what exactly are we gaining with a zero to sixty time of 12.1 seconds? Try 261 miles to the gallon. Definitely not designed for the sports car enthusiast, this vehicle will appeal to those trying to save a buck as they make their daily commute. No price tag yet, but we imagine Volkswagen will keep this thing economical on all fronts.
