It’s billed as the world’s most fuel-efficient production car.

“The 261-mpg fuel consumption figure is a record that has not been achieved by any other vehicle to date, showing that Volkswagen is redefining what is technically feasible in the automotive industry,” the German automaker said in a release.

The covered rear wheels of VW’s XL1 make the vehicle resemble a first-generation Honda Insight from 1999 through 2006 that operated on gasoline and electric power. Like the original two-seat Honda three-door hatchback hybrid, the XL1 will go on sale to the public later this year.
