The Volkswagen XL1 concept looks like it rolled right out of a Star Wars movie-a sleek, almost bullet-like design with an artfully diminished grille, and tail lights that look like the hyper drive on the Millennium Falcon. We’ve known about the diesel plug-in hybrid for a long time now, and lamented that it wouldn’t be available in America. That is, until we got a ray of hope from the German manufacturer.
After being tantalized for months by reviews from automotive publications, we were told that Volkswagen was contemplating leasing the new vehicle for those who were looking to maximize their fuel economy.
Actually, revolutionize may be a more choice word, since we’re talking about a car that gets 261 miles per gallon. Our collective heads are spinning just thinking about it.
As dizzying as the potential of getting one the XL1 in our showroom is, supply would be limited, as only 250 of the cars were made. Naturally if we hear any details confirming that the XL1 is up for lease, or if it can be ordered from Lindsay Volkswagen, you can find out right on our blog. In the meantime, we can dream.
For those of you for which dreams are not enough, don’t worry. We have plenty of new Volkswagen models with excellent eco-friendly features available at our Sterling, VA showroom. Among these options are the Jetta Hybrid sedan, and Touareg Hybrid SUV.
For information about these two great, fuel efficient hybrids, use the live chat on our website, give us a call, or stop by our showroom for a test drive.
