The Basic Utility Vehicle is a vehicle for change.
This affordable, low-maintenance vehicle meets the challenging rural transport requirements of developing nations, creates economically sustainable transportation, lowers transport costs, stimulates economic activity, and increases rural access to social services.
The rural parts of Africa need a vehicle that is appropriate for their geography. They have low population density, and vast distances with poor road conditions. In developing African countries like Ghana, quality of life depends upon improving transportation. In rural villages throughout the world, there are people with little hope of faster, more effective transportation. Women and children walk miles to retrieve water, medical clinics rely on man-powered carts or patients’ traveling by foot, and food cultivation is slowed without the power of a farming vehicle
