When compared with Winger Ambulance from Tata Motors, Gurkha and Traveller Ambulance from Force Motors, Maruti Suzuki Eeco Ambulance and Mahindra’s own Supro Ambulance, Bolero Neo+ Ambulance strikes the right balance between size and performance. Mahindra promises OEM level quality with this new product too.

Best suited for high speed rapid response

Mahindra Bolero Neo+ Ambulance fully complies with AIS 125 (Part 1) norms governing Typ-B ambulances in the country. There are quite a few standard equipment on offer too.

The compact size (when compared to Winger and Traveller-based Ambulances) ensures easy navigation in city traffic and better fuel efficiency, leading to lower operating costs. The rugged underpinnings in the form of a ladder-frame chassis, high ground clearance and RWD drivetrain layout ensure rough-road ability making it Indian semi-urban and rural environments as well.

Words from the manufacturer

Mr. Nalinikanth Gollagunta, CEO – Automotive Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said, “With the launch of the Bolero Neo+ Ambulance, we reinforce our commitment to nation-building. The Bolero brand has long served sectors meant to improve and secure communities and the public at large. 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.
