Tango eliminated from the Automotive X Prize

Spokane car maker Rick Woodbury lost his bid to win this year's Progressive Automotive Xprize, and with it a chance to take home part of the $10 million prize.

Woodbury's two-seat electric vehicle, the Tango, was knocked out last week in the finals leading up to the very last stage of the race, which was announced last year. Progressive Insurance is the sponsor of the competition, taking place this month in Michigan.

The Tango was knocked out due to failing to reach the required threshold of operating at the equivalent of 100 mpg. Woodbury said the Tango performed at the 90 mpgE rating.

For the full list of remaining cars, here's the Automotive Xprize leader board.
