The aim of the “Lynk&Co Diyam” project was to create a vehicle that not only provides a means of transportation to the local communities in Burkina Faso, but also an innovative design concept for the vehicle, its production, and user experience. This vehicle helps locals in the Sahel region in Burkina Faso to commute to the crop fields which are located at least 30 kilometres away from their villages. The car can fit up to six people and is equipped with a large storage capacity, allowing the harvest, tools and personal items to be transported
