Volkswagen XL-1 review! The Volkswagen XL-1 is a very special car, as only 250 of these were built for the world. The XL-1 also a $150,000 car that's both an economy car and a supercar -- and it's full of bizarre quirks and features. Today I'm reviewing the XL-1, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of this weird car. I'll also drive the XL-1 and show you what it's like behind the wheel of such an unusual car.

1:50 wait that doesn't add up "it beat 100km/L" yet the "9L" fuel tank only gets less than 500km ? That can't be right.
PrizmaK Uur geleden
Maybe the 100km/L is with extreme hypermiling techniques and the electric motor running? While the 500km range is just with regular driving

The satnav might look like a weird tack on for a limited run car, but I believe it's actually the same as the one used in the VW UP / Skoda Citigo / Seat Mii cars - the most budget of the whole VAG lineup in one of VWs most expensive cars 😅

Doug is the type of who lists a Subaru SVX as a comparable to the VW XL-1 because they both have quirks (and features).

Doug, I think your math is off. I don't think 260 mpg with a 2.4 gallon tank is 250 miles. Something just tells me.

Looks like something Citroen would try... This car really needs a modern update, power windows, rear camera and monitor, bigger mirror-screens with a broader field cameras, and definitely no diesel. Diesel is gonna be phased out, petrol/GPL with assisted electric would be nice.

That moment when the most expensive VW has the infotainment of the least expensive VW, the VW UP! In addition to the UP (and its Seat/Skoda siblings) this Garmin unit was also used for the Seat Ibiza 6J2.

Dude, check your math... 0.9L/100km = 235mpg (not 260, but close enough). Now, if you have a car doing a claimed 260 miles per gallon and stick a claimed 2.5 gallon tank (in reality 2.4) to it, what's the total range again? Right, "250 miles"... Says so without triggering any internal BS alarms, hm...

I think the passenger seat is fixed due to the screens that display the blind spots? It seems like it would be weird to make it to where the passenger could very easily cover up one of those displays haha.

Development for this must have been so expensive they've probably lost a ton of money for every car sold even at that price. It's a shame they've wasted that cool tech and ideas that could have become a much cheaper everyday car with incredible mileage. A cool ultra-Prius from VW could have started a planet-saving trend before Tesla made it cool, maybe. Too bad those idiots chose to cheat emission tests and destroy the brand's reputation.
