VW XL1 in Geneva

VW XL1 in Geneva

As predicted by us, the Volkswagen XL1 continues to be recognized for its truly exceptional design.

This time it's the UK's Designs of the Year awards who selected the VW XL1 as the winner in the Transport category.  So, officially, the VW XL1 is Transport Design of the Year in the UK.

But it doesn't end there.  As the Transport category winner, the XL1 will now compete against the winners in the other categories (Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Furniture, Graphic and Product) for the title of Design of the Year 2014.

The overall winner will be announced on June 30, 2014.

Klaus Bischoff is lead designer for the XL1, a limited production vehicle that boasts the highest fuel efficiency rating of any road-legal production vehicle.
