Look how tiny this car is compared to the Prius-sized Mirai - I simply can't see how that would ever gain the requisite approval in the collision safety department to go mainstream, not least because I think you need to supply 2 vehicles for crash testing (definitely 1). I think there is a very low production waiver of a few cars allowed before you need to get all that stuff - hence will this ever be more than a proof of concept thing? https://www.riversimple.com/2017-evergr ... /img_1237/
That vehicle, the only one ever pictured I believe has the year designation '65' in the license plate - meaning it was registered for use between September 2015 and March 2016 (likely built and finished long before). It is amazing how far they have got on only a few £m funding, though I remain skeptical as to whether this is an impassioned voyage of discovery, or a viable business and transport solution. We have, as a United Kingdom a rich history of small scale vehicle manufacturer failures/ insolvencies - and that has been due mainly with an almost inherent national failure to successfully commercialise, rather than to successfully innovate and produce well.
Concerning the Mirai, there appear to be 41 registered in the UK, I live near an open hydrogen filling station (I think the first one opened in the UK - and predictably next door to a main Toyota/ Lexus dealership), and I am yet to see one on the road, or any vehicle ever fill up with Hydrogen. I assume therefore, that they are all being tested by various commercial organisations. Once they turn 3 years old, sometime towards the end of the year and through 2019, I will be carefully looking for any of those to turn up used, and am highly interested in what the used price may be. I would also assume that the number of miles traveled will be very low indeed, but I will keep my eyes peeled. I have really wanted to see one on the roads, and I should have done by now based on where I live and where I commute.
