Mahindra Bolero Neo+ Ambulance comes with special medical equipment
Mahindra Bolero Neo+ Ambulance launched, priced at Rs. 13.99 lakhs (ex-showroom). Government e-Marketplace (GeM) pricing of this ambulance is Rs. 12.31 lakhs.
The Indian utility vehicle maker has launched the extended wheelbase version of the Bolero Neo Ambulance to fill the gap between smaller van-based offerings and bigger coach-based offerings in the Type B Ambulance segment.
Mahindra says it is designed to meet the varied needs of the growing patient transportation sector in big cities, smaller towns and upcountry locations.
It is based on the same body-on-frame underpinnings of the Bolero Neo but with a longer wheelbase for a more spacious cabin and a more powerful 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine to suit the requirements of ambulance owners and operators across different markets.
The 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine produces 120 HP and 280 Nm of torque. It is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and comes with a rear-wheel drive configuration.
The Mahindra Bolero Neo+ Ambulance is built to fully comply with AIS:125 (Part 1) norms that govern the Type B Ambulance segment. Mahindra has equipped it with single-person operable stretcher mechanism, provision for an oxygen cylinder, a washbasin assembly that facilitates hygiene and a public address system that ensures clear communication during emergencies. It includes a D+4 seating capacity within its air-conditioned cabin.
Mahindra is also expected to introduce the private vehicle version of the Bolero Neo+ soon with the same 2.2-litre diesel engine option.
