The engineers at Volkswagen are working on a smaller version of their “UP!” which intends to be marketed against the Smart ForTwo mentioned in yesterday’s post — the single gas entry for 2009’s Greeen Car of the Year at the LA Auto Show. The new up will be the smallest VW model and will seat 2 people and is being called the ‘2-Liter’ and be based on the UP! platform. They plan on equiping the small fry with a 50 horsepower 1.0L three cylinder diesel. Reports have suggested that this small vehicle will return over 100 mpg, in fact VW is targeting 117 mpg. This should be interesting!
