The Aptera, a competitor for the Progressive
Well as a convenience to their readers (and perhaps to myself following
a rather stupid e-mail) the people at Autoblog Green have put up a post
which pretty much links everything you would ever want to know about the
Progressive Automotive X-Prize — and a bit more — in one convenient
The X-Prize will give $10 million dollars to the car that gets 100 mpg
— or more. So as you can imagine there have been a lot of small, green
car companies fighting for the Big Bucks in this one. And also the bragging
(and publicity) rights.
Among the competitors is the Air Car (oops, "Compressed Air Car") that I
talked about in a previous post.
