Exclusive summary about Volkswagen L1 Hybrid Concept Car By Dylan T Kingberry

Gone are the days of our automobiles running 5-6 kilometers per liter of fuel, Volkswagen is preparing to unveil the much hyped Volkswagen L1. The key feature behind the Volkswagen L1's low energy consumption converting to the increase in mileage is the Volkswagen L1's extremely aerodynamic and lightweight construction, shaped like a bullet (hence bullet car), with a slightly different seating arrangement placing two occupants in a row enabling the extremely low profile design.

Both technically and visually, the CFRP body is already considered a significant achievement in car design. While the length of the L1 at 3,813 millimeters is still similar to that of a Volkswagen Fox, and its height of 1,143 millimeters nearly matches that of a Lamborghini MurciƩlago, the car's aerodynamically optimized width (1,200 millimeters) has no comparisons in the world of today's production cars.

In total, the Volkswagen brand is represented by seven world premieres at the 2009 International Motor Show in Frankfurt.
