Is it really that green if it costs so much… well, green?!Posted: 01/30/2011
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?
- 260 MPG
- Will go into production
- 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?
