Volkswagen has announced that the L1 Concept Car is heading to production. The car supposedly will be getting 230 miles a gallon and be a single person vehicle. This sounds like it gets better gas mileage than a horse and buggy and looks a lot cooler too.
So you’re excited about the 2010 Prius with its modest mileage gains. Or maybe you really want a Chevy Volt with a 40-mile all-electric range.
2010, as we’ve noted, is going to be a good year for green cars.
But this is ridiculous.
VW has been talking for a long time about its L1 concept, so called because it uses a measly 1 liter of gasoline to go 100 km. For us Americans, that translates to about 230 miles per gallon.
