is it me or do the rear wheels look like they are also turning …
Maybe because they are in so deep, it’s a bit of an illusion. They are going to put rear wheel covers over the top, too… so that pretty much rules out the possibility of rear-turning wheels.
This car has a Toyota Sera whiff about it. Limited production run, humble engine, futuristic design, doors which open upwards. I love it!
The rear wheels are spinning as it’s a rear wheel drive?
Impressive fuel economy VW! If I was VW I would guzump Toyota with super efficient hybrids that offered an 8 year warranty on the entire hybrid drive train not just the battery. A move like this would rapidly create a mainstream hybrid market and catapult VW to the number 1 car maker globally. If VW can focus on reliability and running costs it deserves to succeed.
They probably couldn’t afford to do that, even with the ginormous profits they’re making.
Probably right on that score.
I bet it has a glorious exhaust note – if you like Lombardini mulchers and Briggs and Stratton compressors.
