Just saw this a few days ago.
I'm glad Volkswagen is trying something different, but I would be very sceptical of the mileage claims (Mostly because it seems like no car company wants to be honest about the MPG's of their "mileage flagship" cars) and I bet maintenance will eat you alive. More-so than a typical VW!
And let's not even get into it's initial cost.
Again though, I like the concept. Hopefully there is more follow-through on this.
