Nevertheless, the XL1 is only for European distribution. Some reports claim the car isn't even allowed to tour in the United States. I wonder why and I then compare issues to what TESLA is going through. The Tesla's all electric car doesn't sell through dealerships. They are sold directly, yet don't expect a savings on the purchase price. The one and only problem with Tesla's vehicles, is the price. However, some States are playing bad politics with old laws to block Tesla from selling directly and forcing Dealerships into the mix. Alas, in comes that conflict of interest again: Why will a gasoline engine Car Dealer want to sell an electric car for less profits? Here is another conflict: Government wants to solve the evils of capitalization, yet they are in bed with car, oil, gasoline and other corporations blocking direct sales, VW from showing the XL1 in the States, and leading us to believe that a car with a carburetor can never get 100 mpg. The XL1 gets almost 300 miles per gallon.
