Volkswagen's XL1 hybrid concept car might see production by the 2014 model year. Test cars have been secretly filmed recently, and there is much speculation that the 240-mpg hybrid-diesel will eventually see full production runs. The XL1 which was on display at the 2011 Qatar Motor Show had a carbon fiber body and weighed 1,700 pounds. The gull-wing doors, inset rear wheels, and rear view camera system all mark the car as unique, and its expected sticker price is guessed to be in the over-$100,000 range.
