Volkswagen wants to build 235mpg car by the end of the decade

A few years ago Volkswagen showed off a tiny tandem two seat streamliner dubbed the 1-liter car. The name came from the fuel consumption of 1 L/100km or 235 mpg. While at the time no one seriously expected this to be put in production. VW CEO Martin Winterkorn has now confirmed that a plastic and magnesium super mini would indeed by built in limited numbers by 2010. The car will be powered by a 300cc single cylinder engine yielding a top speed of 75 mph.
