As our first crowdfunding closed at midnight on Sunday 9th April, we were thrilled to have reached over £1,138,000. A huge thank you to all those who have pledged to join the Riversimple crowd on this exciting and important journey towards clean and efficient cars. You have not only invested in the Rasa but also into an entirely new business model. The next generation of zero emission vehicles requires the next generation of business models. We are building the riversimple business to be circular and sustainable. We are looking to partner with the UK’s leading business schools to enable the implementation of circularity and sustainable practices into Riversimple.

In the meantime, we have fitted a new back end to the Rasa made of bio carbon, with layers of flax woven into it.

Inspired by nature in so many ways, the car has butterfly  doors and  now a ‘whale fluke’ boot, which will comfortably take a set of golf clubs or, if it is more to your taste, two cabin bags and a case of wine.

And that is good news as we definitely have occasion to celebrate! The entire team in LLandrindod Wells is in very high spirits. Thank you all.
