India’s Rural Folk Saves Walking Miles with a Rural Utility Vehicle

India’s Rural Folk Saves Walking Miles with a Rural Utility Vehicle

In rural India, men, women and children are still trekking on foot for miles to retrieve water, receive medical attention and services, or cultivate food. India’s rural population is still often stuck using basic forms of transport such as cattle-drawn carts, rickshaws and makeshift vehicles, which are known locally as jugaads. These vehicles are slow, can be unsafe and sometimes difficult to maneuver.

EVOMO, a designer and manufacturer, has built a safer and more useful alternative to the jugaad – the low cost Rural Utility Vehicle (RUV). The RUV is designed to replace illegal and dangerous transportation vehicles, with the company wanting to be a disruptive intervention in providing transportation solutions in rural areas around the world.
