Nissan Launches World’s First Zero Emission AmbulanceMay 18, 2020
The Japanese automaker has announced that the first Japanese zero-emission (EV) ambulance has already entered the local hospital.
This car was provided to the hospital in Tokyo as the first zero-emission (EV) ambulance within the Tokyo-zero-emission initiative promoted by the city authorities.
“Nissan will contribute to building a zero-emissions, non-lethal society through sustainable mobility. This car is a great example of how environmentally friendly cars can be used more easily in local communities, ”said Ashwani Gupta, chief operating officer and chief executive officer of the company.
This vehicle is equipped with an electric stretcher to reduce the stress on personnel and seat belts, which increase the safety of passengers in all seats. In addition, the vehicle is equipped with two lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 33 and 8 kW, which increase the working time of the brigade with electrical equipment and air conditioners, and also allows you to use it as a mobile power source in the event of a power outage or an accident at a power plant.
The novelty was developed on the basis of the NV400 model, which the company sells in Europe, and the experts at Autoworks Kyoto, who have extensive experience in creating ambulances, were responsible for the development. In addition, the engineers at Gruau, a major European bodywork company for emergency vehicles, were responsible for the interior and exterior decoration.
The dimensions of the new items are 5548x2070x2499 mm, and the curb weight is 3.5 tons. The power plant produces 75 hp power and 220 Nm of torque. Charging is carried out from a charging station of 33 kW.
