Automotive X-prize draft rules released
There will be two vehicle classes, one for 4+ seat vehicles with at least four wheels, the other for two+ seaters with no wheel requirement. Two long-distance races will be run sometime in 2009 to evaluate the competitors. The greenhouse gas emissions will be calculated on a well-to-wheel basis with the well-to-pump portion calculated based on the DOE-Argonne GREET model for whatever fuel each vehicle uses. The pump-to-wheel part will be measured on the vehicles. The draft will be publicly unveiled at the New York Auto Show and comments are open until the end of May. You can read the draft PDF here.
