261 MPG Volkswagen XL1

Very cool Volkswagen XL1 but also very limiting given the cost and capacity.  To me the idea of an extremely fuel efficient car is based on the ability to mass produce.  The benefit of reducing pollution and fossil fuel consumption can only be achieved when a significant portion of vehicles on the road are efficient, not just the few driven by those who have the means to acquire one.  That said, the concepts incorporated into the XL1 will hopefully lead directly, or indirectly, to better cars for the masses and it is comforting to know we have the ability to produce a car like this now, not 50 years into the future.
