WAS 500 Rettungswagen RTW Volkswagen Crafter Kofferaufbau 4,3 T

The VW Crafter WAS 500 Euro-Lans ambulance presents all modern standards of the WAS brand combined with a highly ergonomic interior. The patient compartment offers best sanitary working conditions and enough space for a comfortable treatment of the patient. All required materials are not only stored functionally but are also within reach. Safety of emergency services personnel has the highest priority therefore the defibrillator and the main emergency case are mounted on a sled which can be pulled in direction of the paramedic. In this way the paramedic has all his attention for the patient without being forced to leave his seat. The ergonomic design with enclosed streamlined panels between cab and box body ensures optimum aerodynamics, thus optimising the vehicle’s fuel consumption.
