[VIDEO] Volkswagen XL1 spied on the road

The Volkswagen XL1 has been recently spied while it was being tested on a public road and it seems that the company is actually planning to produce the model.

After a rumor appeared last week which was saying that the Volkswagen XL1 will be produced in al limited number, the model is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time by a video find on YouTube, which is showing the XL1 being tested on public roads. The Volkswagen XL1 is expected to be followed by a plug-in hybrid version of the new VW Golf 7, but more on the model will be announced close to its presentation, which might be scheduled to 2013.

As a small reminder, the Volkswagen XL1 concept car managed to burn only 0.9 liters of fuel every 100 km in an average cycle thanks to its two-cylinder inline TDI diesel engine, helped on the way by an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. The diesel burner is developing 48 horsepower on the concept and the electric motor is generating 27 HP. The hybrid powertrain is being mated to a seven-speed DSG transmission and the model has a 35 km range in full electric mode. When the TDI engine will start “spinning”, the XL1 Concept will be emitting just 24 g/km of CO2. The final production version will probably come as a plug-in hybrid and will benefit from the regenerative braking system technology.
