The 2015 XL1 Volkswagen: the world’s top fuel-saving automobile!

That’s an ultra-rare 2015 diesel-electric Volkswagen XL1 (VW 1-litre) with two seats. The car astounds people by being among the most fuel-efficient vehicles of the world as go 100km but use under a liter of diesel oil.

The auto manufacturer Volkswagen announces their super product can travel 261 miles (~420km) with only a gallon of diesel, five times less than the energy consumption of an average automobile in the same distance. That means you just need to spend under N1000 for around four liters of diesel fuel to travel from Lagos state to Owerri if owning this car.
