Nissan Zero Emission Ambulance becomes part of ‘Zero Emission Tokyo’ initiative


Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and the Tokyo Fire Department announced a new addition to the ambulance fleet of the Ikebukuro branch – Japan’s first Nissan NV400 Zero Emission (EV) Ambulance. The project is the result of a strong collaboration among Nissan, the Tokyo Fire Department and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.


“Nissan strongly believes in
sustainable mobility and strives to contribute to a world with zero
emissions and zero fatalities,” said Ashwani Gupta, Representative
Executive Officer and Chief Operation Officer at Nissan. “This project
is another great example of our efforts to enhance accessibility of
eco-friendly vehicles to local communities.”

The introduction of
the first EV ambulance in the Tokyo Fire Department fleet is part of the
Tokyo Metropolitan Government's “Zero Emission Tokyo” initiative. The
Nissan EV Ambulance is equipped with an electric stretcher that enables
ease of operations for ambulance staff.

Thanks to its EV
powertrain, the noise and vibration levels in the vehicle are
significantly lower in comparison with a traditional gasoline-powered
vehicle, helping reduce negative impact on patients as well as on staff
handling sensitive equipment.

Two lithium-ion battery packs
support its EV capabilities (33 kilowatt-hours) with an additional
battery (8 kWh) allowing longer use of electrical equipment and the air-
conditioning system. The ambulance can also turn into a mobile source
of power in case of a power outage or natural disaster.

Thanks to
its EV nature, the Nissan EV Ambulance is a cost-efficient solution
from a cost-of-charging and maintenance point of view. The Nissan EV
Ambulance is based on a converted Nissan NV400 currently on sale in

The bodywork, executed by Autoworks Kyoto, is compliant
with Japanese regulations and designed to meet customer needs. The
robust and practical ambulance package was developed by Gruau, a major
European emergency vehicle bodywork company.
