Welcome to the Automotive X Prize (AXP) Blog. Our intent, in this space, is to create a forum for meaningful discussion about the issues we're confronting. If you've come here without knowing who we are and what we are trying to do, please visit the main AXP site to find out more.
Our aim is to provide a safe place for intelligent discourse. We encourage thoughtful comments from every side of every issue. We are non-partisan, neutral commentators on the complexities of today's automotive industry. Our mission is to create a future vision of that industry. We are plowing the ground so that others can create the future. For more on our editorial policy, please visit the About page of this blog.
We will discuss automotive issues -- public policy, corporate decisions, regulatory efforts, personal preferences, etc. -- and recount their impacts. We see this as a place to highlight barriers to progress, and also to propose and applaud solutions. Our website and this blog will highlight the heroes who are working to bring super-efficient mobility options to market.
Simply, we want to see the introduction of a new generation of desirable vehicles that help us use petroleum efficiently (if at all) and reduce harmful emissions.
We hope you will join us in our mission to affect positive change in one of the largest industries on the planet. The risks of inaction are too great to describe. We present a path to tangible solutions... radical breakthroughs that require imagination, risk and courage. We believe it can be done. We challenge you to help.
