Over 30 teams confirm participation in the Automotive X Prize to develop a 100mpg car

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

A multi-million dollar prize will be awarded to the teams that win a long-distance stage race for clean, production-capable vehicles that exceed 100 MPG ‘equivalent’.
The AXP will encourage production-capable vehicles and products (not concept cars) through tough entrance requirements, judging criteria, and race courses that test and reward manufacturability, marketability, safety, durability and performance.
