A British car manufacturer banking on the future of hydrogen cars aims to raise £150m over the next three years. Riversimple – the brainchild of entrepreneur Hugo Spowers – has developed a two-seater hydrogen fuel cell car named the Rasa, Latin for “clean slate”. The car is aimed at city dwellers and boasts a top speed of 60mph.
Hands up who wants to give £150 million to the man who didn’t check the dictionary? You know, one of those brown M&M moments.
Clean slate is tabula rasa, rasa thus, presumably, meaning slate.
