Automotive X-Prize Competition Coming Down to the Wire


MSNBC - July 27, 2010

The Pro­gres­sive Insur­ance Auto­mo­tive X-Prize just announced results of on-track com­pe­ti­tion, leav­ing nine vehi­cles from sev­en teams in the run­ning. The event seems unex­pect­ed­ly well timed con­sid­er­ing the way the BP Gulf oil spill has raised anew ques­tions about America’s depen­dence on for­eign oil. Only a few steps are remain­ing before win­ners are announced in Wash­ing­ton in Sep­tem­ber.
