The XL1 can achieve a combined fuel consumption of 0.9 litres per 100 kilometres and CO
2 emissions of 24 g/km. Like the L1, the XL1 uses a two-cylinder turbo-diesel. Displacing 800 cm3,
it is rated at 35 kW (47 hp) and 121 Nm (89 lb-ft) of torque and
transmits power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed DSG
transmission. The electric motor pitches in with 20 kW (27 hp) and 100
Nm (74 lb-ft) of torque, and can work in parallel with the diesel or
drive the car independent of it. Fully charged, the XL1 can travel up to
35 km (22 mi) on electric power.
The Volkswagen XL1 was selected in February 2014 as one of the top five finalists for the 2014 World Green Car of the Year.
