Hugo Spowers
Chief Engineer and Founder, Riversimple

Hugo Spowers is an Oxford University trained engineer and entrepreneur.  His first business was in motorsport, designing and building racing cars and restoring historic racing cars. He left for environmental reasons and set up Riversimple on the basis that a step change in automotive technology is both essential and possible. The first project was the LIFECar, developed by a consortium Hugo brought together with Morgan and presented at the Geneva Motorshow in 2008; the Hyrban, a small technology demonstrator, followed in 2009. The Rasa prototype, currently on the road in the UK, is the first Riversimple car designed for type approval and delivers the equivalent of 1.2 litres/100km; a pilot trial of 20 vehicles is being launched later in 2018.
