The Renault concept car will burn an average of 2 liters of fuel every 100 km (141 mpg UK / 117 mpg US), compared to the XL1’s 0.9L / 100km (313 mpg UK / 261 mpg US).

The upcoming Renault concept car will be a plug-in hybrid gasoline electric hybrid and it should offer about the same space as the new Clio generation. As far as the design goes, this will be completely different than the one used on the new B-segment hatchback as the carmaker will focus on aerodynamics and improving its fuel efficiency.
