Could this be the face of the future? We certainly hope so. Recently at the Geneva Motor Show the XL1 was confirmed by Volkswagen. Along with that all the specific technical details which quite frankly mean very little to me. Bottom line is that there is going to ba another ‘green’ electric hybrid type car that looks sexy. Yeah.

The Volkswagen XL1 features a two-cylinder 800cc TDI engine producing 47 hp (35 kW) which is backed by an electric motor developing 27 hp (20 kW), while the necessary juice is provided by a 5.5 kWh battery pack.

The first batch of XL1s will consist of 50 cars and after that Volkswagen will build it on demand. No details for the moment about price.
