With rising fuel prices globally and the constant need to develop cleaner and greener cars, Volkswagen has made their agenda rather clear in the past as well where the company has elaborated upon the measures that they will take to become the world’s most environmentally sustainable automaker by 2018.

 

The company intends on having an average fuel consumption of less than 4 litres per hundred kilometers and a reduced CO2 emissions to 95g/km by 2020. Apart from that, the manufacturing process is also set to get cleaner and the company has already managed to cut energy and water consumption per vehicle by 10 per cent in the last two years. The group is committed to achieving these targets and has clearly stated that this is the time to invest in such innovations in order to increase the global proliferation of efficient technologies and alternative powertrains.

Going by the common tagline of ‘putting your money where your mouth is’, Volkswagen already offers its customers 245 models that have a CO2 emission of less than 120g/km and there are 36 models that already have a CO2 emission of less than 100g/km. No doubt, these are commendable achievements and do illustrate the way forward for the company, however Volkswagen isn’t just looking at incremental growth or development on this front and to showcase their agenda the company also introduced the XL1, a technological marvel which is available today.
