CARHYPE: VW and mileage for days!

Volkswagen's L1 Concept was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

"In many ways this 840lb, tandem-seat machine is the most important car at the show and just as much a supercar as the Lamborghini Reventón or Bugatti Sang Bleu.

It teaches people that 'super’ powers don’t have to equate with a gargantuan size, weight and fuel consumption. Super is as super does and the L1 has super in spades." (MORE)

If I could, I would buy a VW Polo Blue Motion:

"The most efficient model of all, the Polo BlueMotion, gets an all-new 1.2-litre, three-cylinder common rail diesel engine developing 74bhp, combining longer gearing through the five-speed gearbox, a stop-start system and regenerative braking.

The new Golf BlueMotion is powered by a 1.6-litre TDI common rail diesel engine producing 104bhp, and achieves a Combined fuel economy of 74.3mpg, while the Passat BlueMotion switches from a 2.0-litre TDI unit to the 1.6 TDI engine, allowing it to return 64.2mpg on the Combined cycle, up from the 57.6mpg achieved by the outgoing car. At the same time, emissions fall from 128g/km to 114g/km of CO2." (MORE)
