Edison2 VLC 4.0 hybrid wants to redefine the auto industry

In 2010, Lynchburg-based Edison2 won the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize with its Very Light Car (VLC) concept.

Edison2 eVLC EV does 245MPGe - say what?

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) first began using the Miles Per Gallon Gasoline Equivalent (MGPe) in the window stickers of early green vehicles like the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt.

Very Light Car carries off X Prize

The Edison2 team clearly put more effort into designing its fuel-efficient car than it did coming up with the name, and it's paid off: the Very Light Car No 98 has earned its designers $5 million from the X Foundation.
