Shell to bring first flat-pack truck to India

Shell Global Commercial

Shell is planning to commission a pre-production prototype of the world’s first flat-pack truck in India. Named the OX to India mission, the truck will showcase the capabilities of the vehicle for bringing low-cost all-terrain mobility to rural communities in developing countries. 
 
The OX to India mission is a partnership between Shell and Gordon Murray Design (GMD), working in close alignment with the Global Vehicle Trust (GVT). Shell will fund a bespoke prototype OX to take to India and will set up an outreach programme once the vehicle is in India. The vehicle will be re-engineered and built by GMD, and flat-packed for shipment to India in the later part of 2018.
 
The OX, based on GMD’s flexible iStream technology, will run exclusively on Shell fluids including Rimula. It is designed to carry a payload of 1,900 kg, which could include everyday necessities, medical supplies, building and agriculture materials and can seat up to 13 people. The vehicle was envisioned by Mr Torquil Norman and designed by renowned automotive engineer Professor Gordon Murray. 
 
Mr Huibert Vigeveno, Executive Vice-President, Shell Global Commercial, said, “Shell is eager to play a role alongside others in developing and promoting mobility solutions in developing regions. The OX to India demonstration will see the concept validated and discussed on the ground in a real world setting. The OX has the potential to broaden access to transport possibilities and all the resulting benefits that come with this.”
