Welsh Car Chat-Riversimple

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

......if you are anything like me you'll want this Company to be successful, and you'll want to have a go of their car, and there is something innovative and different on their model for "not selling them" :)



Thanks to sloppysod for posting it up on "Picture(s) of the Day". I found it absolutely fascinating.

..and to Gibbo who posted up this original article

..If we are ever passing remotely near LLandridnod Wells, then a little visit to Unit 32 on the Ddole Enterprise Park has got to be a must do thing! ...and of course we would have to go on another 30 mile detour to photograph this at Nantyffin :)

...now it could be withdrawal symptoms from lack of tv watching I will admit, but I was genuinely excited by that little video, and keen to learn more.

Looks like they are looking for 60 to 80 drivers from Monmouthshire to join in with the trial. Maybe I should see if they want a volunteer from Northumberland to test out a few longer journey's. We are used to gas in bottles up here in the sticks so I'm reasonably sure the local calor gas and propane man could add a cylinder or two of hydrogen to keep me going! :!: :-D

..H2 four door and H2 van on the drawing board, Citroen have been slow off the mark here. I mean their original H Van was a classic, they could definitely have followed it up with an H2 Van! but have been beaten to it.
