small voice of the month – the Ox flat-pack truck

This month, the smallVOICE team highlights an innovative new transport solution as our ‘small voice of the month‘, our way of celebrating someone or something that’s small but makes a big difference.The Ox truck is the world’s first flat-pack truck, designed specifically for Africa’s difficult and varied terrain. It’s the vision of Sir Torquil Norman of Global Vehicle Trust and the designer of the Ox is top Formula 1 automotive designer Gordon Murray (both pictured below).

Listen to some audio and our appreciation of the Ox at around    38’54 minutes in to the podcast.

Global Vehicle Trust continue to crowd fund in order to move from prototype to large-scale take up of the trucks and to move away from operating on a charitable basis to commercial production. You can find out more on their website:
