Tango Electric Car Remains in the Running

Despite difficult year for Commuter Cars, 2009 did keep the Tango tandem electric car in the X Prize competition

Published: 27-Dec-2009

It was not a great year to be selling an electric car that costs $121,000. Ask Rick Woodbury, the founder of Commuter Cars, the Spokane company that makes and sells the Tango, which costs that much – or more if you want longer-lasting electric batteries.

Even so, 2009 was the year Woodbury, 60, opened the doors to possibly winning a $2.5 million prize in a prestigious competition.

That’s the cash award available to winners of one segment of the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize.
