The fuel mileage works out to about 261 miles a gallon, says Automotive News. VW calls it the most efficient car in the world.
The new Volkswagen XL1 combines light weight and a low aerodynamic drag to get the most out of its hybrid system. The system has a two-cylinder diesel engine and a seven-speed transmission.
Although the car has amazing looks, VW insists its also practical. It has side-by-side seating, gull-wing doors and has lots of carbon-fiber parts.
It can accelerate from a stop to 62 miles an hour in 11.9 seconds and has a top speed higher than 85 miles per hour
