Supersonic Skydiver Felix Baumgartner is a regular when it comes to
reinventing what's possible. At the Geneva Motor Show he discovered the
Volkswagen XL1; the model that redefines what's possible in car making.
With systematical lightweight construction and perfect aerodynamics the XL1
gets 261 miles to the gallon, making it the most fuel-efficient
eco-friendly production car in the world. The XL1's 2-cylinder plug-in is
enough to impress even a record-breaking free fall.
Car experts Mike Rutherford from The Sunday Times and Birgit Priemer from
Auto Motor und Sport got their shot behind the wheel, as well as other
international journalists who got to test the motor handling in different
types of weather in the Swiss Alps; from country roads, highways, and
melting passes. They came back impressed.
In the long run, other brands in the Volkswagen Group will also benefit
from the technologies in the XL1. The XL1 is a car for the future, driving
