A few months ago, we captured the Volkswagen XL1 testing in some cold-weather environments, and as the ultra-fuel-efficient multiple gets nearer to development, some more spy images have appeared displaying the car performing hot-weather tests. A development edition of this diesel plug-in multiple car is expected to return 235 mpg, and it could be on sale in limited numbers by next season.
Looking very much like this year's Nova XL1 Idea, this model stands out with its structured type and its inset, filter back monitor. The last time we saw the XL1 in model type, it had entrance showcases installed outside the car either as cover up or in place of the side cameras, but these newest injections show that the car will in fact depend on cameras for drivers visibility. The deficiency of entrance showcases should help keep the car smooth – Volkswagen detailed the concept's move coefficient at just 0.186. This car is also losing the full rear-wheel protects that will give the car optimal aerodynamics.
With the gullwing-like gates start, we can also see some of the internal, which has a very identical overall look as the idea such as the large evaluate group, routing display, move handle and middle collection manages. The device board and A-pillar look to made from carbon fiber. One thing we can't see from this taken is the agreement of the car seats. The concept cars presented an balanced out sitting settings, and it isn't clear if this will bring over to the design.
From these shots we can also see into the back engine compartment showing a huge cooling fan over what is expected to be a little, two-cylinder diesel petrol fuel engine. This effective web page along with a 27-horsepower motor page unit and seven-speed DSG transmission is what will give this car its triple-digit gas economy numbers.
