Volkswagen has recently announced that the first delivery of the impressive XL1 has been made to a customer living in Germany.
Do you remember the Volkswagen XL1? Well if you do, and if you wanted one for yourself, than you will be glad to find out that the German based automaker has recently delivered the very first unit of such a vehicle to a customer living in the company’s homeland. The car manufacturer didn’t have too much to say on the delivery of the first XL1 but it has confirmed the fact that the model in question had an onyx white exterior design, with a titan black and pearl gray interior.
The Volkswagen XL1 is taking its power from a plug-in hybrid powertrain, which is made from a TDI diesel engine, with 48 HP (35 kW), backed up by an electric motor, with 27 HP (20 kW) and a 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. Thanks to this assembly, the VW XL1 can burn an impressive 0.9 liters of fuel every 100 km, which is similar to 313.8 mpg UK or 261.3 mpg US. The model can travel on electricity alone for up to 50 km (31 miles). Prices for the XL 1 start at 110,000 euros.
