The 200 mpg Volkswagen Formula XL1 Concept is set to make its debut at the Qatar Motor Show later this week. No, that was not a typo, as VW's new hybrid is designed to average over 200 miles per gallon.

The Volkswagen Formula XL1 Concept runs off of "a two cylinder TDI engine, electric motor, lithium-ion battery pack and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission." Roughly translated from car-speak, this means that Volkswagen's new concept combines a tiny engine with an aerodynamic frame to achieve an unheard-of MPG for a production car. If all goes well at Qatar, the Formula XL1 Concept will see production in a few years. Get pumped. Stats for 200-MPG Concept Coupes Trending: Older & Average
