Rendered: Volkswagen XL2 by Theophilus Chin

Recently, UK-based buff book Autocar Magazine reported that Volkswagen is mulling the idea of a four seat XL1 to go head-to-head with Honda’s FCV.  The idea seems to be a very plausible one, as a production version would effectively help Volkswagen to cope with tighter emissions mandates.  Auto Manipulator Theophilus Chin has taken a shot at what that may look like.

As one might expect, Theophilus has stretched the car slightly and added an R8 side blade-esque rear door for ease of access.  After seeing just how tiny the car is in person, we think a four seat XL1 would need a bit more stretching to make the rear inhabitable by anyone larger than 5 feet but you cannot deny that the render looks extremely good.
