56-MPG Volkswagen New Compact Coupe Makes World Debut at 2010 Detroit Auto Show





"DETROIT — The four-passenger Volkswagen New Concept Coupe, which makes its world debut at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, is a German riff on what a fuel-efficient coupe crammed with style can look like. VW is not saying whether the 56-mpg NCC is bound for production, only that it shows "how Volkswagen envisions a front-wheel-drive hybrid for the compact class that would be implemented when the time is right."

The coupe bundles a 148-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged TSI gas engine, a 20-Kw electric motor and a seven-speed direct-shift transmission. A lithium-ion battery supplies the electric motor with energy. The concept is also equipped with a stop-start system that cuts fuel consumption, especially in stop-and-go traffic. The NCC has a top speed of 141 mph and sprints from zero to 60 mph in 8.1 seconds.

"Since the NCC can also be driven in a pure electric mode, the drive system is classified as a full hybrid," VW said in a statement.

There is a studied sex appeal to the low-slung NCC, and it has such touches as LED daytime running lights and turn signal lights. The car is painted in Tungsten Silver Metallic and comes equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels. Exterior cues include a spoiler lip built into the trunk lid and a stylized diffuser.

The cockpit gets Berry White leather, a new multifunction sport steering wheel and an 8-inch touchscreen for the radio/navigation system.

Wow really like the look of the exterior on that. The interior design is pretty neat (minus all the white. It looks good but what a terrible color to keep clean) and the console extending into the back is interesting. kinda takes away from an extra spot that always is useful for cramming an extra person into the car.

Overall though that is pretty sick.
