I love everything about this car. The only ? I have is how the narrowed rear track would do in snow/ slush conditions. It looks incredible, and I love the performance of it.

I will do fine. I had a citroen ID 19 for some year, which has the same features, and it did great in snow, sluch etc.

I love that VW - I want one. How many seats? 2 or 3? Only need two

It's a two-seater. And I love this car too, just unsure about the funky door/roof. I see why it's necessary, but it's just goofy looking.

If we sat down and thought things out, what would Ecomodder come up with? It would likely resemble a first-generation Insight body, with a 1L Metro mill, and some form of electric drive. Almost as if VW was reading our minds!

That 260 and 235 MPG figure are based on the carbon fiber concept version, right?

So we can expect that to drop..

Most likely yes. But maby not much if they use aluminium as they've done before...

Still - they employed just about every trick and tweak in the book to get there.

Nice to see, and nice to see that reviewers are positive of the design. Stille they talt about acceleration and high speed cornering, and havnet grasped its a ECO car - build soly for milage - not speed or acceleration - dumb journalists...
