Industrial design students Daniel Shorrock, Chris Warren, Fergus Salmon, Zoe Lovell-Smith, Liam Avery and Oscar Jackson have won the national James Dyson Award with their Electric Cargo Trike.
The Electric Cargo Trike is a compact tilting electric urban delivery vehicle designed for last-mile cargo delivery in urban settings and aims to address environmental issues, efficient package delivery, and safety for couriers.
Another Massey graduate, Sian Hosking-Berge, was named a runner-up for her kit-set BOU Bike design. It's the second year in a row that Massey students have won the top prize.
Subject director and senior lecturer in industrial design, Lyn Garrett, says “We are thrilled for the Electric Cargo Trike team and Sian. They have put in an incredible amount of work, and it’s rewarding to see them recognised. We are also honoured that our students have once again been named as the top winner of this prestigious award.”
