PHOTOS: The New Volkswagen Beetle Called XL1

Volkswagen XL1 Hybrid
Yesterday, Volkswagen revealed the production version of the new VW Beetle, called the XL1, and it’s attracting a lot of attention. The new electric and diesel gas-powered hybrid isn’t exactly ready to roll down the assembly line (and into your garage) just yet. There are still some details left for VW to work out — such as the sticker price for this beauty.

The XL1, which will be built by hand in a German factory, comes equipped with 2 seats and “scissor” doors for quick access. VW estimates the XL1 can get 261 miles to the gallon, which would make the XL1 the world’s most energy-efficient automobile.
The car’s carbon fiber body and low drag coefficient allows the XL1 to travel 31 miles on electricity alone, and over 310 miles on a tank of fuel.
The Yahoo Autos article mentions loads of technical details and stats about the new VW hybrid, but the most interesting bit of information is this: if you are ever trapped in the car after an accident, “the scissor doors can be blasted open with explosive bolts.” That’s good to know.
