Mahindra Group has provided 12 ambulances in Mumbai, Maharashtra to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The new Mahindra Ambulance will be put into service immediately and ensure COVID-19 patients in the state receive faster access to medical facilities.
The Mahindra ambulances are built on the brand's Supro commercial vehicle. The narrow dimensions of the light commercial vehicle, allows the ambulance to access narrow streets, not only in Mumbai but also in other small towns and cities across the state as well. Mahindra has converted the 8-seater van to now carry patients along with other basic medical equipment as well.
The first batch, consisting of 12 ambulances was handed over to the Mumbai civic body by Aaditya Thackeray, Minister for Tourism & Environment, Maharashtra govt. This handing over was done in the presence of the Uddhav Thackeray, Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
Aaditya Thackeray took to social media (Twitter) to announce the handing over of the ambulances to the city civi body. He also stated that the Maharashtra government has requested Mahindra Group for more such ambulances, asking them to ramp up production numbers.
Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra also took to Twitter to announce the start of service of the first batch. The Mahindra ambulances are said to have been in collaboration with Zee Group.
Apart from Mahindra, many other vehicle manufacturers have also come forward in supporting various state governments with ambulances. Most recently was MG Motor India, who converted their Hector SUV into an ambulance, with all the essential medical equipment.
The MG Hector ambulance was donated to healthcare authorities in Vadodara, early last month. The Hector ambulance was built in a short span of 10 days and features all the medical equipment required. The MG Hector ambulance was built by the brand in collaboration with an Ahmedabad-based company — here are the details.
