    Mahindra has launched the BS6-compliant Supro ambulance, which it says is developed in house and is based on the company’s popular Supro van platform. The ambulance will be available in two variants – LX and ZX – with a starting price of Rs 6.94 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).

    The fight against coronavirus

    Mahindra says the first batch has been manufactured exclusively for the Maharashtra government to meet their requirements for ambulances in the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic.

    According to Veejay Nakra, CEO – Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra, “As a caring and responsible corporate citizen, Mahindra wants to enable people to rise by driving positive change in their lives. The launch of Supro ambulance to support medical caretakers to move people safely and in time is a clear testimony of this philosophy. This is one more step by Mahindra to fight the pandemic, in addition to the manufacturing of face shields, ventilators and sanitisers.”

    “We are delighted to partner with the government of Maharashtra in their efforts to fight the pandemic. The first batch of 12 vehicles have been produced in record time and delivered to them already. Several other government organisations, NGOs and corporates have also shown an active interest in procuring the Supro ambulance. Hence, we are quickly ramping up the capacity to add this growing demand. This is the most affordable solution fitted with all necessary equipment and complying to all norms,” added Nakra.

    It gets essential features for medical services

    The Supro ambulance is factory fitted with all the essential equipment including a foldable stretcher cum trolley, medical kit box, provision for an oxygen cylinder, fire extinguisher, along with internal lighting, flame-resistant interiors, and an announcement system. On the exterior, it gets AIS 125- certified retro-reflective decals, 75 percent frosted windows, and a beacon light with a siren. The variants have been developed to assist medical and health services, especially during the ongoing global pandemic.

    Engine details

    The Supro ambulance is driven by Mahindra’s BS6-compliant 909cc, two-cylinder, diesel engine, which delivers 47hp and 100Nm of torque. It is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The company says the compact dimensions of the ambulance enables easy manoeuvrability on Indian roads, resulting in faster movement of patients requiring critical care.

    Aftersales support

    The Supro ambulance comes with a warranty of 2 years/60,000km. The members of the UDAY program will receive a lifetime insurance of Rs 10 lakh along with other benefits. In addition, the Mahindra dealer network and technicians will enable easy repairs and maintenance.
