First world problems. That’s what we call issues like traffic, delayed trains, and buses in the developed world. Very rarely though do we experience anything like the overland commute for people in the developing world, where issues range from washed out dirt roads, to overloaded transport, to completely remote access to locations that too often become seasonally inaccessible.
To combat this issue, Global Vehicle Trust developed The Ox specifically for the African continent. Their resulting flat-pack vehicle, meaning it can be assembled in less than 12 hours with an Allan wrench, provides mobility to communities with poor infrastructure. They’re two-wheel-drive but function well in off-road landscape and boast a low cost with few parts, meaning lower maintenance. And because of its flat-pack design, they’re easily shipped to these communities that in turn assemble the truck onsite. Each Ox hosts a 4 cylinder 16-valve Diesel Ford PT22 engine, with a displacement of 2198cc and can easily fit up to 10 people in the covered bed of the truck. Pricing available upon request.
