Based on information as quoted from Autoevolution, a conventional hybrid concept car will be equipped with the engine capacity of 1.4 liters and is capable of producing up to 140 hp combined with electric motor-powered 35 hp. Fuel efficiency of the XL3 only requires 3 liters of fuel consumption for a distance of 100 kilometers.

For your information, three years ago before the issue of emissions scandal emerged, VW has launched a hybird product that is VW XL1. In capabilities, this model is somewhat superior than the XL3 being developed.

Equipped with a 0.8 liter TDI engine, XL1 able to achieve fuel consumption of 0.9 liters for a distance of 100 kilometers. Unfortunately, this car is priced quite expensive approximately €111 thousand or 1.6 billion with only 250 cars being built on a carbon fiber tub.
To keep the XL3 as cheap as an average Passat, Volkswagen is not going to use carbon fiber or a bespoke platform and the XL3 will also be a bargain at only €30,000 or approx Rp.433.3 million. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES| AUTOEVOLUTION]
