VW's 314mpg diesel hybrid to be built as left hand only

THIS is Volkswagen's wonder car capable of a claimed 314mpg – but it isn't coming here.

It has been confirmed that the XL1 hybrid will go into production.

It has a two-cylinder 0.8-litre diesel hybrid engine. But, what a pity, it will be made in left-hand drive only.

It has a plug-in diesel hybrid system which can cover 31 miles on electric power alone. And it emits just 21g/km.
