Volkswagen XL1 to Cost €110,000?
Moreover, our source claims Volkswagen doesn’t want to expand production of the XL1, which is scheduled to be built in only 250 examples. “The car is more of a lighthouse than a business model,” Ulrich Hackenberg, a member of the board of management at VW, told Wirtschafts Woche.
As a reminder, the Volkswagen XL1 is motivated by 47 horsepower two-cylinder 800cc TDI engine combined with an electric motor producing 27 HP thanks to a 5.5 kWh battery pack. The vehicle has a drag coefficient of 0.189 and a total weight of only 1,752 lbs (795 kg).
The XL1 can hit an electronically limited top speed of 99 miles per hour (160 km/h), while the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint can be achieved in 12.7 seconds. The hybrid can travel 31 miles (50 km) on electricity alone, but the range can get up to 310 miles (499 km) with a full tank of gas.
