Edison 2 is one of 5 X Prize teams exhibiting at the 2010 International Auto Show the next two weeks in Detroit. So we are having a very busy time this week. We brought our show car, Bullitt (also our entry in the Alternative – side by side class) back from Charlottesville yesterday with a gleaming new silver paint job. Today and tomorrow are final touches here in our Lynchburg shop.
Oliver, Brad and Julian will load Bullitt into the trailer on Friday and then they are off to Motor City; the show starts on Monday. Last year over 650,000 people attended. This is a big deal, and based on our experience at the Las Vegas SEMA show we expect to create a buzz. Especially since The X Prize teams are exhibiting on “Electric Avenue” and we have the only car without a plug or array of batteries. It should be very interesting; follow us on Twitter!
