Automotive X-Prize Winners Share $10 Million For 100MPG Car Designs

One of those companies, I would like to add as a personal note, was one composed mostly of students from Western Washington University and led in part by my step-brother, Eric Leonhardt. Their Viking 45 gas-electric hybrid (second row, on the right above) made it all the way to the finals. I just wanted to congratulate the WWU team and teams like it; this is a fantastic application of public money and of students’ time.
