Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

The ultra-efficient Volkswagen XL1 has been confirmed for production, and will make its debut at the upcoming Geneva motor show.

The XL1 uses a plug-in diesel hybrid system that means it can do as much as 314mpg and travel 31 miles on electric power alone. The official CO2 figure is just 21g/km.

These figures come thanks to a 47bhp 0.8-litre, two-cylinder diesel engine, which is combined with a 27bhp electric motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery. The power is sent to the wheels via a seven-speed DSG gearbox, and VW even says that the XL1 is capable of a 0-62mph time of 12.7 seconds and a top speed of 98mph.

The XL1 can be charged from a standard household mains socket, but also uses energy-regeneration technology to boost the battery, with the electric motor working as a generator when the car brakes. The battery is used to boost the diesel engine, but can also power the car on its own.

The XL1 is also the most aerodynamic car ever made, with a Cd figure of 0.189. It is also incredibly light, with an overall weight of just 795kg.
