'British engineers have designed an Ikea-inspired flat-pack truck which will be shipped to developing countries to help people in remote villages transport essential supplies. British manufacturers will make the parts that will be gathered together at two locations, one in the Midlands and one in the south of England. The boxy, Lego-like truck will be shipped in pieces, stacked six to a container which could normally only carry two fully assembled vehicles."
Global Vehicle Trust (GVT) has created a prototype truck to
bring cheap and reliable transportation to the developing world.
The aim was simple - GVT wanted to create a reliable,
cost-effective, work-horse for people in the world’s most
remote places. After considerable design work the 2.2 liter, diesel
driven OX was born. Weighing in at 1,500kg the OX “will seat
13 people, carry eight 44 gallon oil drums” or deliver a
2,000kg payload, which ever you choose.
