MONTREAL, April 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Campagna Motors is delighted to
announce that it is partnering with OptaMotive to compete in the Progressive
Insurance Automotive X PRIZE. With a prize purse of over $10 million, this
competitive race is designed to inspire the development of super
fuel-efficient vehicles. The partnership's objective is to build a
commercially viable and appealing vehicle capable of getting the equivalent of
100 miles or more per gallon of gas (2.35 litres per 100 km) while maintaining
the performance of a race car!
OptaMotive's entry will use the T-REX as the basis on which to create an
electric version of the unique motor vehicle. OptaMotive team leader Mark
Demers believes that: "The T-REX is the perfect vehicle for our project
because of its light weight and compact chassis design."
Campagna Motors will hand over an engineless T-REX to the OptaMotive team
at The Guy Show being held in Ottawa on April 25 and 26. André Morissette,
President of Campagna Motors, states: "This is a unique opportunity for the
OptaMotive team to evaluate the adaptation potential of the T-REX to an
electric motor and to promote an environmentally sustainable technology."
