Varley Electric Vehicles has delivered an Ambicart emergency vehicle (pictured) to Westmead Hospital in Sydney, Australia’s largest hospital.
The Ambicart, one of 80 electric vehicle variants offered by the Tomago, NSW manufacturer (factory pictured below), will be used as a rapid response vehicle for the emergency department.
This vehicle is fitted with a standard Stryker M1 ambulance stretcher and has been configured to hold vital equipment similar to that found in an ambulance.
According to the company: “The Ambicart has the ability to manoeuvre in places where an ambulance or vehicle couldn’t.
“Being 100 per cent electric this vehicle emits no tailpipe emissions and can safely venture into internal spaces.”
The Ambicart is part of the locally-manufactured Varley range, which includes models from formerly independent Australian manufacturers, Electric Transit industrial models and EMC Electric golf carts.
Part of the diverse Varley engineering group, Varley Electric Vehicles also distributes Italian Dulevo industrial sweepers and Alke electric vehicles.
