Ssangyong develops ambulance application on the Korando Sports platform
Posted on: May 27, 2013 - 10:08am IST
The reason for today’s appearance is because the Korando Sports’ chassis has been modified into an Ambulance equipped with an air suspension. It will be able to carry emergency medical equipment with “comfort and convenience” Ssangyong says. It is also claimed that the bodywork has been redesigned to reduce vibrations.
The driveline is formed by the eXDi200 engine (2-liter turbodiesel, launched last year into the Korean Rexton) and a four wheel drive system. It is driven through an automatic transmission.
The Ambulance variant debuted at the International Fire Safety Expo in Korea this month. Concrete production plans aren’t available, but supply of the special purpose Korando is likely to begin this year.
