Geneva Motor Show: Volkswagen unveils diesel plug-in hybrid

At the Geneva Motor Show Tuesday, Volkswagen took the wraps off the production version of the Volkswagen XL1, a turbodiesel plug-in hybrid two-seater, Voelcker writes. Fuel efficiency is quoted as 261 miles per gallon on the European test cycle, making the Volkswagen XL1 one of the most fuel-efficient cars at the Geneva Motor Show.

The new Volkswagen VW Prototype XL1 is shown during the press day at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in Geneva Tuesday. Steady-state cruising at 62 mph requires just 6.2 horsepower, so once you get it up to highway speeds, the XL1 is insanely fuel-efficient, Voelcker writes.
