Automotive X Prize Winners!

The Automotive X Prize has drawn to a finale, with the Edison2 Team winning half of the $10 million for their entry VLC (Very Light Car).  Li-Ion Motors’ Wave II and Pervaves’ X-Tracer from Switzerland split the other half of the prize.  Click on the image above for the NPR story. With the October issue of Wired Magazine featuring a cover that proclaims that the age of the electric car is upon us, a lengthy article about the history of Tesla Motors, and a roundup of current pure electric cars, it feels as if a new era has dawned.  It also is the boost I needed after returning from Black Rock City to get back into action.
