2014 Volkswagen Xl1
The Volkswagen XL1 is the well-nigh fuel-efficient yield car in the humanity, with a fire phthisis valuate of 0.9 l/100 km. Thanks to its board cross arrangement, the runabout can likewise binding a outstrip of capable 50 km in all-electric style and so with nil local emissions.
The VW XL1 is an self-propelled hoagie that follows saturated sports car invention principles: low slant (795 kg), double-dyed aeromechanics (Cd 0.189) and a low inwardness of sombreness (1,153 mm high-pitched). This gives the effective Volkswagen the power to sail on the route at a perpetual velocity of 100 km/h victimisation equitable 6.2 kW / 8.4 PS. In all-electric fashion, the Volkswagen XL1 requires less than 0.1 kWh to back a drive outstrip of complete one klick.
Hi-tech whippersnapper conception, arrant aeromechanics and a add-in crossbreed organisation – consisting of a two-cylinder TDI locomotive (35 kW / 48 PS), E-motor (20 kW / 27 PS), 7-speed two-fold batch gearbox (DSG) and lithium-ion barrage – all survive potential for the new Volkswagen XL1 to breathe good 21 g/km of CO2. If requirement, the XL1, with a top hurrying of 160 km/h, can quicken to 100 km/h in barely 12,7 seconds. Intelligibly, 0.9 l/100 km fire ingestion is a disc number that has not been achieved by any otc fomite to escort, and it illustrates how Volkswagen is redefining what is technically executable in carmaking.
Conceptually, the VW XL1 represents the thirdly evolutionary degree of Volkswagen’s 1-litre car scheme. When the new millenary was ushered in, Professor. Dr. Ferdinand Piëch, who is nowadays Chairwoman of the Supervisory Card of Volkswagen AG, formulated the impractical destination of delivery to mart a product car that was hardheaded in unremarkable use with fire intake of one liter per 100 km. In the two-seat XL1, this sight has turn realism. Disdain the grand efficiency of the Volkswagen XL1, developers successfully came up with a personify conception, which delivers more casual usefulness than in the two former prototypes. Spell the driver and rider sat in a bicycle-built-for-two organisation for optimum aeromechanics in the L1, the 1-litre car presented in 2002 and in 2009, in the XL1 two occupants sit slenderly set-back, adjacent, almost as in a formal fomite.
The Volkswagen XL1 is 3,888 mm farsighted, 1,665 mm all-encompassing and scarce 1,153 mm improbable. By common self-propelled standards these are utmost dimensions. For equivalence: a Polo has a alike distance (3,970 mm) and breadth (1,682 mm) but is importantly taller (1,462 mm). Flush a thoroughbred sports car comparable tod’s Porsche Boxster is 129 mm taller (1,282 mm). So, the VW XL1 volition shuffling a outstanding show – a car of the futurity, reinforced for tod.
