RIVERSIMPLE, FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

Riversimple’s new share offer is not just about investing in new, clean technology, nor even in a ground breaking, inclusive business model.  It is also about investing in the wellbeing of future generations.  We have simple needs for good health and wellbeing.  One is being able to breath fresh, clean air.

Out with the old

Out with the old

Air pollution is linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and other respiratory diseases.  It is also linked to underdeveloped lungs in children.  Studies show that long-term exposure to pollution from traffic may reduce children’s lung capacity by as much as 20%.  Research in Europe suggests that up to 30% of new asthma cases in children are caused by exposure to air pollution.

A PRIMARY SOURCE OF AIR POLLUTION ACROSS THE WORLD TODAY IS TRANSPORT.

Children are especially vulnerable to the long term impacts of breathing polluted air caused by the combustion engine.  This can’t be OK.  At Riversimple, we have been working hard to develop a hydrogen fuel cell car with zero harmful emissions.  We launched Riversimple Rasa, built at our workshop in Wales, this March. News about the Rasa has travelled around the world.

Journalists have been excited about the Riversimple Rasa because:

  • There is zero air pollution at the tail-pipe
  • Riversimple are taking fuel efficiency to a new level
  • There has never before been a supercar that is not super expensive.

Our sale of service model means the Rasa ‘supercar’ will be affordable.  It’s not just for superstars.

THIS APRIL A NEW LAW CALLED ‘THE WELLBEING OF FUTURE GENERATIONS ACT’ WAS PASSED IN WALES.

The act is based upon an important study in which people across Wales were asked to talk about what matters most to them.  These conversations were distilled into seven basic Welsh values that include: giving children the best start in life; living within global environmental limits; and prioritising the well-being of all.

In with the new

In with the new

At Riversimple we support the Welsh Government’s ambition to help shape a better future for children and generations yet to come.  The world now has, at its fingertips, the technology to clean up transport systems and cut air pollution.  Help us take an important clean technology, the FIRST EVER BRITISH FUEL CELL CAR, to market.  Purchase shares in Riversimple

INVEST IN A COMPANY THAT IS DRIVEN DIFFERENTLY

YOU WILL NEVER OWN A RIVERSIMPLE RASA.  BUT YOU CAN OWN SHARES IN THE FUTURE OF SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY.

Riversimple Movement Ltd is bent on bringing a new kind of zero emissions car to market.  We are a rapidly evolving enterprise in which all kinds of people are getting involved.  Our aspiration is sustainable mobility.  The success of the recently launched Rasa, a radically new and innovative hydrogen fuel cell car, is testament to our enduring commitment, combined skills and total determination as a team – we are driven differently.

The next step is to build a series of Rasa cars for the public to test and refine in a 12 month trial (we are calling it a Beta test) and for this we need your help.

In every sense we have built a car that is a pleasure to drive

There is no trade-off between fun and sustainability – the Rasa is both: very responsive to the touch and fun to drive because it’s lightweight; lightweight, so more efficient in energy terms.

We will never sell a car

You wouldn’t believe how much money Hugo was offered for a Rasa car – but it is not part of the business plan.  The Riversimple Rasa fuel cell car will be available on subscription as a complete and cost-transparent service.  It’s a lighter, simpler transport option for customers and it leads to a longer term business relationship with a number of significant advantages.  Above all it is disruptive, turning the traditional business incentive to design cars for obsolescence on its head.  In fact, when you sell “mobility” as a service the business incentive is to design cars for longevity, low running costs and sustainability.

We won’t build giant factories but will be part of the local economy

Our manufacturing model = profitable, regional operations each making a maximum of 5,000 cars a year; creating new high skilled jobs, employing local people and promoting local sourcing where possible.

We believe in the health-giving properties of clean air

Don’t we all?  But we want more than monitoring and more than talk.  We are proactively pursuing answers to pollution and the implementation of clean, technologically advanced, infrastructure.  Our car is zero emissions, aero dynamic and highly efficient.

We are opening our doors…to you

We are opening our doors to new investors.  We will organise open days, when you can come and meet our super talented engineering team, find out what Will does at the weekend, about Andre’s previous life in Formula 1, how Hugo came to ski down a mountain with a piano, meet our brilliant board of directors and get the whole story behind the designing of the Rasa.

But more importantly we would like to hear your feedback and talk ideas with you. Because that is how Riversimple Movement will grow, and stay relevant, and overcome obstacles, and get 1000’s of Rasas on the road – and pursue, systematically, the elimination of the environmental impact of personal transport without losing the very thing we love – the freedom to travel this wonderful world.  Lightly.

If you share Riversimple values, you will value our shares.
