VW XL1 to donate technology to other models in the Group image

The German based automaker Volkswagen is planning to share the technology used on the XL1 with other models made under the close watch of the VW Group.

The Volkswagen XL1 will give birth to other models produced by the Volkswagen Group and its two-cylinder engine will eventually be transformed into a four-cylinder unit, which will be mated to an electric motor and a DSG transmission with six gears. This powertrain will be fitted onto the next Audi A3 Hybrid and this should offer it a 50 km range in full electric mode.

The VW Golf TwinDrive, which will be a hybrid version of the Golf 7, will also make its way onto the market, equipped with a similar technology. The model will be 200 kg heavier than your standard Holf and it will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds, while still offering an impressive low fuel consumption. Additional details on future models which will receive the technology from the XL1 remain unknown for the moment but if you want to find out more about the ultra-economical 1-liter car, you can check out this link.
