    nice car, i would to see this liited edition car

  • Matt Posted: 9/14/2009 5:25am PDT

    should it be the L1.5?

  • vwe Posted: 9/15/2009 3:36pm PDT

    I don't see much room for groceries. If making a car get super high mileage entails stripping out all extra space don't we need a little bit more of a driving habit change than expected?

  • greedo Posted: 9/15/2009 3:43pm PDT

    L1.5 doesn't have the same ring to it, and it doesn't fit with carmakers making overzealous claims about their "super-efficient" specials, a la Volt.
    That said, this looks like the ultimate soap box racer.

    Too me it is just yet another old honda civic hybrid in its design from few years back. Why VW doesn't get some better designers and put something with a true wow effect?

  • cooldude Posted: 9/15/2009 4:02pm PDT

    I like the look of the car. But I am not sure how convinient is getting in and out of the car.

  • Jezza Posted: 9/15/2009 4:28pm PDT

    Looks interesting but I could never see myself in one of these.

  • Damien Thomas Posted: 9/15/2009 5:19pm PDT

    Wow. That is a lot smaller than I expected. Lord help the L1 driver who crashes into even a... Smart Fortwo or Mini Cooper.

  • carguy Posted: 9/15/2009 6:15pm PDT

    really cool design- kinda like the ipod for cars

    The guys at the pod races on Tatooine are gonna be totally jealous.

    @Jim B: Think you mean the old Honda Insight?
    @Damien: I suspect that the L1 will have been designed to pass all relevant European crash-test standards.

  • Jim Posted: 9/16/2009 3:42am PDT

    In the first photo the L1 looks like it can easily just start to hover - now that would be cool!

  • Ladydriver Posted: 9/16/2009 9:15am PDT

    This is the ugliest car I have ever seen and I would rather drive something nice looking that gets 80mpg-gas isn't THAT expensive.

  • Thiago Azurem Posted: 1/17/2011 7:41am PST

    Im waiting for L1 V8 Turbo special edition!
