If we talk about an electric car, Tesla will be the benchmark for its mileage range, speed, acceleration and time to recharge the vehicle. But if we speak of a hybrid vehicle, Toyota Prius is a well known among other car manufacturers. Previously, Volkswagen plans to build a fully electric car to compete with Tesla Model 3. But it is not enough for them.
They also plan to create a direct competitor for the Toyota Prius. 1.4-liter engine will power the new Volkswagen XL3, and its electric powertrain will be borrowed from the Golf GTE. Volkswagen aims to sell their new XL3 at the price of $30,000. To lower down the cost, they will use conventional materials to manufacture the car. No carbon fiber chassis or panels will be used.
