Mahindra & Mahindra, an Indian SUV maker, has launched the Bolero Neo+ Ambulance. This vehicle fully complies with AIS:125 (Part 1) norms that govern the Type B Ambulance segment.
The Neo+ shares the same tough underpinnings of the Bolero Neo, launched in 2021, but comes with a longer wheelbase for a more spacious cabin and a more powerful 2.2L mHawk engine paired with a 6-speed gearbox in a rear-wheel-drive configuration. This setup delivers a power output of 120 HP and peak torque of 280 Nm, assuring rapid response times in emergencies.
Mahindra has equipped the vehicle with some practical features which include a 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. The Bolero Neo+ Ambulance also includes a D+4 seating capacity within its air-conditioned cabin.
Nalinikanth Gollagunta, CEO of the Automotive Sector at Mahindra & Mahindra, said, “Ranging from the Police, Army and Paramilitary forces, to government departments engaged in firefighting, forestry, irrigation and public works, all have relied on Bolero-badged SUVs for its robustness and performance in diverse operational environments. The Bolero Neo+ Ambulance, with its versatile performance, continues this legacy by expanding accessibility to healthcare services, especially for, but not limited to, those in the remote areas of smaller towns and upcountry locations."
The Bolero Neo+ Ambulance is priced at ESR Rs. 13.99 lakh, with a Government e-Marketplace (GeM) pricing of Rs. 12.31 Lakh.
