VW planning 117 mpg smart-killer?
Unlike the smart forwo, which has its engine in the back driving the rear wheels, the competitor from VW would use a front engine and front-wheel drive platform. Earlier in the year, we heard that Volkswagen was still working on its tandem-seat 1L car as well. If that's true, this new smaller up! variant would slot somewhere between that 235 mpg wonder-machine and its larger (to use the term in the technical sense) NSF-based brother. BMW is also hard at work on a city car that could revive the old Isetta brand.
