This is it Volks!

By
THE XL1 production car is a culmination of VW’s goal to produce a ‘one-liter car.’

You would probably be satisfied with your subcompact car’s mileage if it regularly returned 10 km/liter. If you are driving a hybrid, then mileage in the range of 25 km/liter would not be out of the ordinary. What if tomorrow, you could buy a car that gets 111 km/liter?
