More than 30 teams from companies including Tesla Motors and Zap Automotive have signed on for the Automotive X Prize to see who can win a race of 100 mpg (or equivalent) automobiles. The cars can run on a variety of fuels including electricity, natural gas, diesel or unleaded gasoline; they just have to get at least 100 mpg. They also have to complete a long-distance staged race, so the cars will have to be durable as well as frugal. Oh, did we mention they also must be low emission vehicles with a real business plan? Yep, if you don’t have a plan to produce 10,000 units of your entry at an affordable price, you won’t be able to race.
