Motoring enthusiasts are being given a chance to buy into the future of mobility.
Shares in the Mid-Wales made fuel-cell car, the Rasa, are being offered to potential backers and users.
You can invest from £500 upwards in graduated amounts with the option to acquire one of the two-seaters for a £20,000 stake. You will never own the car but simply lease it.
Rasa is being shown this week at the Low Carbon Vehicle show near Milton Keynes.
The ecological car firm Riversimple Movement employs 23 at an R&D centre in Llandrindod Wells, mid Wales and is currently crowd funding for their Rasa (Latin for clean slate) to match a €2m EU grant.
The striking, gull-wing vehicle is capable of travelling 300 miles on a single tank of hydrogen, with 20 prototypes taking to the UK roads on a 12 month public trial in 2017 before the full production vehicle arrives late 2018.
The Rasa is capable of 0-60mph in 10 seconds with a top speed of 60mph, and refuels in only three minutes.
Riversimple founder Hugo Spowers said, “The Welsh Government not only supported us with £2m towards the completion of the R & D and build of the Rasa, but continue to take an active interest in our future. Their commitment, interest and enthusiasm for what we are doing is very encouraging – we appreciate it hugely.”
