In the pictures above, you can see two of the many ideas that will compete in the Progressive Automotive X Prize, the now-official $10m race to develop a 100 mpge vehicle, in the coming years. As you might guess from the three-wheeled VentureOne on the left, there is an alternative class to the contest. The vehicle on the right is an as-yet-unnamed ride by Motive Industries. These - along with the Fuel Vapor technologies alé, the MDI Air Car (well, sort of), and the Hybrid Attack - were some of the X Prize vehicles we learned more about in New York. It's gonna be fun to watch this unfold, that's for sure.

More headlines after the jump.
