100 kilometers per liter is more like 235 miles per gallon. I'd give up 100 of those MPGs to get side-by-side seating and room in back for a couple kids.

It's a start. What VW learns building this one will be the basis for further improvements. Four door, four passenger sedans are what people want.

Volkswagen is planning to release a futuristic two-seater production car that can travel 100km on a single litre of fuel. RICHARD BLACKBURN reports.
No they are not. Bad Journalist! Don't pull that switch-a-roo trick on the good folk of Australia. The prototype was shelved a few years ago as it could never be put into production or sold to consumers. It was inherently unsafe for public roads.
