5:55 pm
>> with gas prices still pretty high -- volkswagen says they have a new hybrid that gets 261-miles per gallon. carl azuz breaks it down for us. volkswagen's coming out with a new hybrid car that the company claims would get the equivalent of 261 miles per gallon! considering that the standard toyota prius gets around 50. this is significant. but this doesn't mean that the x-l-1, as it's being called, will get you across the country without stopping. between battery and diesel power, vw says, it'll go about 310 miles total. which is about 90 miles less than your average sedan on a full tank of gas. but the xl-1's engine only needs about 2.6 gallons of diesel to fill it. so a fill-up today's prices would cost about 11 bucks. it's incredibly aerodynamic-- significantly more so than a chevy corvette, for example-- and it certainly looks futuristic. but it's not fast. it'll take over 12 seconds to get you from zero to 60. its top speed will be about 100 miles per hour. though of course none of us would
5:56 pm
ever drive that fast. it's also not expected to be cheap, and it may not even be available in the u.s. but europeans who want fuel-mileage bragging rights, and can still afford the car. may have something to brag about. carl azuz kron4 news.
