Vw developing 2-liter city car

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

Volkswagen announced more than a year ago that it was laboring on a venture to bring its 1-Liter 2002 concept to production reality. The 3-wheeled low-lying totally sleek design still seems a little unrealistic, but now VW is said to be making a slightly larger, more practical city car that's aiming for the 2L/100km (117.6mpg) fuel economy rating.

The fresh '2-Liter' vehicle is anticipated to be patterned on a breifer version of the up! that will is set to go into production in 2009 as reported by Auto Motor & Sport.

Aiming at competition such as the Smart ForTwo and Toyota's new iQ minicar, the 2-Liter will be a more realistic objective for production, and should come earlier than the 1-Liter, though that tandem-seated hyper-efficient vehicle could be in production as early as 2010.

VW has already given hints that a more practical fuel-focused vehicle might be available on the streets in the intervening time, although at the time in 2007; Volkswagen's Chairman Ferdinand Piech framed it as a 3L/100km (78.4mpg) vehicle founded around the Lupo.

Similar to the 1-Liter, the 2-Liter is anticipated to utilize diesel as its fuel of choice since it is the most energy-dense of the readily available fuels in the market today.

A little displacement three-cylinder vehicle, around 1L in size, will probably get the approval. 2-cylinders are in development but improbable for usage because of their high-revving attribute in a vehicular application, the rougher, noisier function doesn't result in any enhancement in fuel efficiency.
