The new WAS 500 4x4 ambulance sets new standards worldwide. When conditions demand a vehicle that can go almost anywhere while carrying a full set of front line equipment, the new WAS 500 4x4 is the vehicle of choice. The combination of raw power and detailed German engineering especially against the background of ergonomics, safety, hygiene and patient handling creates an unique ambulance vehicle on the basis of the EN 1789 standard and beyond. The base vehicle is the powerful Ford F350 chassis with an diesel engine that has 8 cylinders, a displacement of 6.7 litres and a 10 speed automatic transmission. The WAS box body is adapted aerodynamically to the base vehicle and is made from heavy duty aircraft-industry technology.
