Velorex 

Information about Velorex 

Velorex, a distinctive name in the automotive world, was founded in Czechoslovakia by brothers František and Mojmír Stránský. Initially starting as a small workshop in 1943, they developed their first vehicle by ingeniously utilizing surplus tubular steel and war-surplus canvas. This culminated in the production of the Velorex Oskar in 1951, an affordable and lightweight three-wheeled car designed to cater to the needs of disabled drivers, a noteworthy nod to inclusive design long before it became a widespread consideration in vehicle manufacturing.

Over the decades, Velorex carved out a niche for itself with its unusual design approach, focusing on simplicity and practicality. The brand’s vehicles, characterized by their minimalist construction and fabric-covered bodywork, became iconic in Eastern Europe.

Today, the Velorex legacy is viewed with a blend of nostalgia and admiration. Although no longer in production, the brand’s unique design philosophy continues to inspire automotive enthusiasts and designers alike. Collectors and vintage car aficionados treasure Velorex cars, celebrating them in exhibitions and vintage rallies, testament to a brand that stood out for its simplicity and innovative approach to mobility solutions.
