Volkswagen’s ’one-litre’ car coming in 2010
Volkswagen announced that its one-liter car, capable of one litre per 100km, will be launched as a limited edition in 2010. The car was revealed as a prototype in 2002.
The production is possible as the cost of the carbonfibre monocoque dropped from €35,000 (£28,000) to €5000 (£4000).
The car will be powered by a new two-cylinder unit that will offer more refinement, more torque and more power. The car will have a weight of only 300 kg.
The price for the one-liter car will be between €20,000 - €30,000.
