race for a green car
the X prize foundation announced a competition to build an environmentally friendly car. 43 kilometers per liter (100 miles per gallon) regardless of the type of fuel used, 125 grams or less of carbon emissions per kilometer, and cheap enough to expect sales of at least 10,000 per year. the prize's value has not yet been announced but will likely be in the neighborhood of $10 million.
