Volkswagen XL1 | TRANSLOGIC
How do you build the world's most fuel-efficient production car? Start with
the world's most aerodynamic design. The Volkswagen XL1 is capable of 261
miles per gallon thanks to its sleek shape and ultra efficient
diesel-electric hybrid powertrain. The downside is that only 250 will be
made and none will be sold stateside. That didn't stop us from taking our
turn behind the wheel of this truly revolutionary ride. Here's our test
drive of the Volkswagen XL1.

Cheapest Hybrid on the Market - 2013 Honda Insight EX Test Drive & Hybrid Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/insight/2013/?id=32972 When most people say
Hybrid Car the Toyota Prius comes to mind. But it was actually the Honda
Insight that was the first hybrid to go on sale here in the U.S. Back in
2000, the Honda Insight was a 2-seater that averaged more than 60 MPG on
the highway. Today's Insight as you can see is a bit larger and can
accommodate 4 passengers. The 2013 Honda Insight comes in 3 different
trims: base, LX, and EX with prices ranging from $18,600 - $23,790.
When you look at the 2013 Honda Insight with its rakish roofline and
two-piece glass hatch, you might think Honda has copied the wedge design
seen in the Toyota Prius. Well Honda was actually first to use this design
with the first generation Insight. This EX test car comes equipped with
15-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in low rolling resistance tires. All
Insight's come with blue tinted LED tail lights and the same tint on the
The 2013 Honda Insight is a gas-electric hybrid which means it has a
regular gas powered 4-cylinder engine, and electric assist motor, and a
nickel-metal hydride battery pack that gets recharged via the regenerative
braking system. What is a bit different about the Insight is that it is
considered a mild-hybrid meaning the electric motor only assists the
gasoline engine. The car does not have the ability to run on electricity
alone which the Prius can do up to a certain point. The power output of the
gas engine and electric motor combined is 98 horsepower and 123 ft-lb of
torque. The Insight Hybrid is rated at 41 MPG in the city and 44 MPG on the
The hatchback design allows for a lot of storage and cargo space at 15.9
cubic feet with the rear seat up and 31.5 cubic feet with the seats folded
down. The seats are comfortable as they sit tall and are firm. The gauge
layout on the Insight is unique with the speedo integrated in a separate
area above the tach.
So who would be a good candidate to purchase an Insight hybrid? Well if you
are willing to give up some ride comfort and power in exchange for fuel
efficiency at a low price then the 2013 Honda Insight may be the hybrid for

Fifth Gear Web TV - Honda CR-Z Road Test
Honda tell us that it's the world's first sporty hybrid coupe with an
electric motor assisting its 1.5 litre petrol engine. And with claims of 56
miles per gallon and exemption from the London congestion charge, it sounds
pretty tempting. In this video, Graham from the Office heads to the
Netherlands to be one of the first to drive the new CR-Z. For more videos,
