Concept : volkswagen L1
The concept behind the new Volkswagen L1 concept is a car which can travel 100km using only one liter of gas.
The concept has been in the works for a while and is reportedly very close to production. the super efficient car would achieve a fuel economy of a round 240 miles per gallon, something unthinkable only a few years a go.
The car is able to reach this feat thanks to an hybrid diesel electric power train, aerodynamic form and a light weight.
The interior seats the driver and passenger one behind the other and has a single door which opens to one side.
The shell is made from lightweight carbon fiber , making the car’s total weight an astounding 838 pounds.
