Is it really that green if it costs so much… well, green?!


Volkswagen is showing off their new XL1 prototype at the Qatar Motor Show, is it a step towards the future, or a really expensive green status symbol?

Volkswagen XL1 Prototype - All conceptual-like

Facts:

  1. 260 MPG
  2. Will go into production
  3. Only 100 will be manufactured, primarily for German buyers

With only 100 being manufactured, the market being limited to Western Europe, and the concept style of the design, I believe it’s safe to assume that this vehicle will cost an arm, a leg, and a small-medium sized orphan.

This being said, is this really a push in the right direction or does it set the stage for the truly eco-conscious to be truly out of reach for years to come?
