Volkswagen recently tore the veil off of its 261 MPG concept vehicle, the Formula XL-1, in Qatar. It’s the third in a line of high-mileage concepts, and apparently is product ready as VW plans to sell 100 of these vehicles.
Volkswagen chose the 2009 LA Auto Show as the venue for the world debut of it’s Up! Lite concept car. Spawned as a direct cousin to the L1 two-seater unveiled in Frankfurt a several weeks ago, the Up! Lite takes that idea and makes it a bit more practical—with marginally enough room for 4 people.
