Tokyo gets emission-free ambulance
Nissan and the Tokyo Fire Department have announced a new addition to the ambulance fleet of the Ikebukuro branch – Japan’s first Nissan NV400 Zero Emission (EV) ambulance.
The project is the result of a collaboration between Nissan, the Tokyo Fire Department and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
“Nissan strongly believes in sustainable mobility and strives to contribute to a world with zero emissions and zero fatalities,” says Ashwani Gupta, representative executive officer and chief operation officer at Nissan. “This project is another great example of our efforts to enhance accessibility of eco-friendly vehicles to local communities.”
The Nissan EV ambulance is equipped with an electric stretcher that enables ease of operations for ambulance staff. And, thanks to its EV powertrain, the noise and vibration levels in the vehicle are significantly lower than a traditional fuel-powered vehicle.
