Polaris’s modified ranger 6x6 800 off-road ambulance is intended to supply medical help to inaccessible places.
Polaris displayed its modified Ranger 6x6 800 ‘off-road’ ambulance in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) event at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences college in Delhi.
The company claims that the modified ambulance is the “ideal vehicle to move heavy loads over the harshest terrain”. It has an engine capacity of 760cc and is intended to manoeuvre treacherous terrains to supply medical help and assistance to places inaccessible by regular ambulances.
Speaking on the occasion, Pankaj Dubey, managing director, Polaris India, said, “Polaris off-road ambulances are apt for supplying medical supervision in rural India and calamity stuck regions, as they are capable of clearing highways/roads, or handling fire in narrow streets. The event is an opportunity for us to showcase the range of Polaris ATVs’ unmatched versatility and stability in demanding conditions. Polaris vehicles are designed with inherent off-road capabilities and are tested under extreme conditions.”
Polaris also recently donated five ATVs to Uttarakhand to help in the rescue and relief operations.
