Felix Baumgartner Tests the Volkswagen XL1

The Volkswagen XL1 is finally real. VW will release a small series this year and lease it to customers. Supersonic Skydiver Felix Baumgartner takes the plunge and tests the XL1 at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. Watch the video below. He is pretty impressed. It takes a lot to impress a guy who reached super sonic speeds during a space jump.

The Volkswage XL1 gets 261 miles to the gallon, making it the most fuel-efficient eco-friendly production car in the world. The XL1's 2-cylinder plug-in car has sci-fi looks but is ready to roll the streets of today.
