In addition to the super fuel efficient up! concept micro car VW debuted last year, the German automaker is also apparently planning to add another little fuel-sipper to the family, this one even smaller than the up!. Sources say the future tiny car will be based on the up!‘s platform, but apparently borrowing its powertrain from Schwinn, will be equipped with a newly-developed 1.0L 50 horsepower engine. The two-seater whispering metal deathtrap is rumored to achieve 117 mpg and is intended to crush other minor competitors like the Toyota iQ and the smart ForTwo.
