OX Delivers – CLEAN

UK-manufactured truck for the global market 

OX Delivers has developed the purpose-designed 3.5-tonne OX truck and a unique Electric PAYG business model which is currently being piloted in Rwanda. By eliminating up-front capital required for a truck and enabling payment of only “what you need, when you need it”, a vast addressable market has opened up.   

This project develops the technology to exploit this business opportunity by delivering two fundamental enablers; advanced, affordable EV technology and a digital ecosystem to optimise operating costs and minimising capital expenditure.
