Hugo Spowers

Hugo Spowers left motorsport for environmental reasons and set up Riversimple on the basis that a step change in automotive technology is both essential and possible; the principal barriers are not technical but to do with people, politics and business inertia.  Riversimple is a sustainable car company, developing hydrogen fuel cell cars and an all-inclusive usership model that makes energy efficiency profitable.  The Rasa prototype is the first Riversimple car designed for type approval; a pilot trial of 20 vehicles is being launched in 2018.
