Volkswagen’s XL1 Hybrid Diesel: Update
The super-efficient Volkswagen XL1, a car that reportedly gets 235 mpg, is expected to show its production face at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, which runs from Mar. 7-17. Some reports say it will be in showrooms by late 2013. Spy shots of the car were published on the Internet since as far back as last August, but no authorized appearances have yet taken place, and probably won’t, in order to drum up excitement for the Geneva Show.

Mitsubishi, Chevrolet Featuring Low Lease Rates

Further complicating the equation, the Chevy Volt, a range-extended hybrid, is now offering attractive lease rates as well, as low as $269 per month for the popular, award-winning Chevrolet.For the complete story, see:
