The $5 million automotive X prize, in the mainstream category was the Edison 2. $2.5 million prizes were given to Li-ion motors and X-tracer for their notable efforts. The Edison 2 model won the race with 120 MPG over a 200 mile course.
The point of the contest was to get “production-capable” cars that could get 100 mpg or more.

Mark Goodstein, the executive director, brought it all together and summarized the contest like this:
“”This is a goal to inspire a new generation of super-efficient vehicles that will break our addiction to oil and stem the effects of planet change. That really is it.”
