Nissan Deploys Zero Emission Ambulance In Tokyo

This Nissan NV400 ambulance is all-electric, but is there any plan for a series production NV400 EV?

Nissan, in partnership with the Tokyo Fire Department and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, recently deployed an all-electric ambulance based on the Nissan NV400 van.

This first of its kind zero-emission ambulance in Tokyo is equipped with two lithium-ion battery packs – the main 33 kWh traction battery and an auxiliary 8 kWh for on-board electrical equipment and the air-conditioning system, while the electric motor is 55 kW and 220 Nm (peak).

“The Nissan EV Ambulance is equipped with an electric stretcher that enables ease of operations for ambulance staff.

Thanks to its EV powertrain, the noise and vibration levels in the vehicle are significantly lower in comparison with a traditional gasoline-powered vehicle, helping reduce negative impact on patients as well as on staff handling sensitive equipment.”

“Thanks to its EV nature, the Nissan EV Ambulance is a cost-efficient solution from a cost-of-charging and maintenance point of view.”

“The bodywork, executed by Autoworks Kyoto, is compliant with Japanese regulations and designed to meet customer needs. The robust and practical ambulance package was developed by Gruau, a major European emergency vehicle bodywork company.”
