The Automotive X Prize – A competition after my own heart

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on April 3, 2007

From their website:

The goal of the Automotive X PRIZE (AXP) is to inspire a new generation of super-efficient vehicles that help break our addiction to oil and stem the effects of climate change.

Briefly, there will be two classes of vehicles, both of which must be mass producible and achieve 100 miles per gallon of gasoline. One class will have at least four wheels and carry at least four passengers. The other class will carry at least two passengers and has no minimum number of wheels. (I’d like to see zero!)

All teams that create vehicles meeting these criteria will enter said vehicles in a race (races?). The fastest of these will be crowned the winner and collect the prize.

The full guidelines (open for a 60 day public discussion) can be found here.
