Volkswagen’s New 300 MPG Car Not Allowed In America Because It Is Too Efficient
 
Volkswagen’s New 300 MPG Car Not Allowed In America.

You won’t find the 300 MPG Volkswagen XL1 in an American showroom, in fact it has even been denied a tour of America because it is too efficient for the American public to be made widely aware of, and oil profits are too high in America with the status quo in place. No tour has been allowed for this car because the myth that 50 mpg is virtually impossible to obtain from even a stripped down econobox is too profitable to let go of, and when it comes to corporate oil profits, ignorance is bliss.

I would delete this thread. I've seen this article too many times, and the author of that article seems to have written it just to troll people and get views on his website. Nothing of use to discuss here.

Oh great, this again! [sarcasm alert]

I'm too lazy to find the thread, but this has been discussed before: the XL1 is not sold in the US for a number of reasons, none of them being that it is "too efficient."

Dougie must have forgotten from last time that we didn't all just fall off the turnip truck.
