New York 2008: Motive Industries' muscular X Prize entry vehicle needs a name
Of the 60+ teams that have signed a letter of intent to participate in the Progressive Automotive X Prize, about 15 were on hand at the
New York Auto Show. With only four cars on stage, it's easy to calculate that some teams arrived sans vehicle. The group from
Motive Industries had just a little folded flyer to show what they've been working on for their entry vehicle. The basic idea for the as-yet-unnamed Motive vehicle is an
electric car with an on-board ICE for range extension. The real challenge for Motive will be convincing everyone that "filling up" via quick, robot-aided
battery exchanges are the way to go. Four-passenger and full size with biomaterials in the body panels and elsewhere, the vehicle is just now moving off of the design pages. Motive's Darren McKeage and Nathan Armstrong were in New York to give the public a first glimpse of this
new car. You can view the flyer in the gallery below and listen to the duo by clicking play.
