Polaris Off-Road Ambulance for India

By   |   21 October,2013

Polaris Pvt. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Polaris Industries Inc., world renowned makers of all terrain off road vehicles displayed its Ranger 6x6 800 ambulance vehicles at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. These ambulances, developed by Bafna Healthcare Pvt. Ltd., are heavily modified for large occupant capacity and high traction levels. The vehicles come with 6 wheel drive available on demand with the simple flick of a switch.

The Polaris ambulance is powered by a 760cc, 40 hp engine that gives it a maximum speed of 64kph and is perfect for tackling narrow, rutted terrain that might be difficult or impossible for wider, heavier vehicles to navigate. Mr. Pankaj Dubey, MD, 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 & ORVs unmatched versatility and stability in demanding conditions. Polaris vehicles are designed with inherent off-road capabilities and are tested under extreme conditions.”

Earlier this year, Polaris won a contract from the Gujarat State Police to supply them with the Polaris RZR S800 model. The armed forces worldwide have expressed interest in such versatile vehicles in order to fight terrorism and aid in search and rescue operations.
