OX Delivers, a UK-based emobility start-up, has secured a £1.2 million funding grant from the UK government-funded body Energy Catalyst.


The grant will finance the development of a sustainable energy infrastructure in Rwanda, benefiting OX Delivers’ fleet of electric vehicles (EVs). The company is committed to expanding its transport-as-a-service model across the Global South, starting in Africa.

OX Delivers offers customers the ability to transport goods to market across challenging terrains for less than $1. This model allows for efficient and sustainable transportation, reducing delivery times from days to hours, which were previously covered by foot or bicycle.

Simon Davis, founder and CEO of OX Delivers, said “we will leverage this grant to demonstrate the benefits of a low-carbon energy ‘charge-point’ infrastructure and provide rural communities with affordable transport. This will support the electrification of two of our current depots to create flagship projects which will further strengthen the OX Delivers business case.”
