is keen to cut emissions, and the automaker is looking towards electric automobiles for help. Rumor has it that a one-passenger electric vehicle is set to make its debut in Berlin, Germany on September 8th. Pretty specific details for a rumor, but we're keeping one eyebrow raised until we have more information.

There's been no mention yet of the expected range, but a Volkwagen insider has stated that EV concept will be better than the XL1 concept (pictured) shown earlier this year. That 1.0-liter, diesel-powered, super-efficient vehicle is expected to achieve 261 miles per gallon, but an electric vehicle can still top that while emitting nothing. We'll have the full details in the coming weeks.VW may unveil single-seat EV concept originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 22 Aug 2011 16:30:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
