Sept 16, 2010: NY Times 3 Teams Win Automotive X Prize
Teams from Virginia, North Carolina and Winterthur, Switzerland, have won the first Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize. The competition, which began in 2007 with 136 vehicles from 111 teams, required that the vehicles achieve 100 miles per gallon or the energy equivalent.
