Volkswagen has reveled the green car of the future after six years of perfecting the design.

The cute little pod vehicle gets its name for its ability to travel 100 km on only one liter of fuel. Its light weight (it weights only 660lbs!) design makes it possible to be more fuel efficient, along with cutting edge German engineering.

"The car will use a two-cylinder diesel hybrid engine, and will automatically shut off at stoplights -and (we hope) automatically restart when you hit the gas pedal," Neatorama says.

The best part is that this little guy isn't just an innovative design, it's actually going to be available to consumers by 2010, and not 2012 as originally expected!
