Volkswagen Prices XL1 at $145,000
Buried at the bottom of a Volkswagen press release is the automaker’s first official mention of pricing for the radical XL1:
“…priced at approximately $145,000.”
That’s per VW.
$145,000 is in line with our 3-month-old report of a $146,000 price tag on the XL1.
Now, you may be saying that we were $1,000 off, but one must remember that VW has no intention of selling the XL1 in the US, so that “approximately $145,000” price mentioned by Volkswagen is a figure converted from Euros. The conversion factor has certainly changed since we reported on the $146,000 price this past summer.
Why use the word “approximately?” Again, it’s a conversion factor thingy. Want a specific price? Okay, let’s go from US dollars to Euros – $145,000 = 105,401 Euros
So, if someone asks you what’s the price of the XL1, answer them with “approximately $145,000.”
