Hippies, hipsters, and surfers are mourning the killing off of the Bulli EV Van, a version of the classic Volkswagen Type 2 bus. But fear not, as Volkswagen “has confirmed that the 313 mpg XL1 (pictured above) will debut sometime next year,” according to Gas2.
The XL1 is a diesel-electric hybrid, with a 27 horsepower electric motor and 48 horsepower two-cylinder diesel engine, is capable of a range between 261 to 313 mpg. This ride is clearly meant for leisure cruisin’ — not hot roddin’.
The XL1 will be on the market in 2013 with limited availability.
