Volkswagen XL1 and ID Concept Cars of the Future

The Volkswagen XL1 (VW 1-Litre) is a two-person limited production diesel-powered plug-in hybrid produced by Volkswagen. The XL1 car was designed to be able to travel 100 km on 1 litre of diesel fuel (280 mpg‑imp; 240 mpg‑US), while being both roadworthy and practical. To achieve such economy, it is produced with lightweight materials, a streamlined body and an engine and transmission designed and tuned for economy. The concept car was modified first in 2009 as the L1 and again in 2011 as the XL1.

A limited production of 250 units began and pricing starts at €111,000 (~ US$146,000). The Volkswagen XL1 plug-in diesel-electric hybrid is available only in Europe and its 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery delivers an all-electric range of 50 km (31 mi), has a fuel economy of 0.9 l/100 km (260 mpg‑US)

The Volkswagen I.D. is an electric vehicle based on the new all electric MEB platform. It was first shown as a prototype at the September 2016 Paris Motor Show. A production vehicle based on this prototype will be launched in 2019. It will be one of five new Volkswagen brand models based on the MEB platform
