|YEAR 6 PUPIL CAI WAS DELIGHTED TO BE THE YOUNGEST POTENTIAL BETA TESTER OF THE RASA AT THE RECENT LAUNCH EVENT IN ABERGAVENNY.|
Thousands of potential testers applied to be part of a project supported by Monmouthshire County Council and the EU to trial just 20 of these hydrogen fuel cell cars, designed by Welsh company Riversimple.
The beta testers will be part of shaping the future of the Rasa – refining the innovative Riversimple service (they do not ultimately plan to sell them but to create a leasing service to make them accessible to all) and excitingly contribute to how this clean, affordable, sustainable car will ultimately drive, look and what it will feel like.
We will keep you posted if he (and his family!) are successful, it will certainly make an appearance in school!
