Nissan Motor Co Ltd and the Tokyo Fire Department announced a new addition to the ambulance fleet of the Ikebukuro branch, Japan’s first Nissan NV400 Zero Emission EV Ambulance. 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. Two lithium-ion battery packs support its EV capabilities of 33 kilowatt-hours with an additional battery of 8 kWh allowing longer use of electrical equipment and the air- conditioning system. The ambulance can also turn into a mobile source of power in case of a power outage or natural disaster.

The Nissan EV Ambulance is based on a converted Nissan NV400 currently on sale in Europe. 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.
