Toyota, the Japanese vehicle manufacturer, never fails to satisfy its customers. HiAce by Toyota is another fantastic vehicle that is perfect for family and commercial use. It is spacious, powerful, comfortable, beautifully designed and luxurious from the inside as well as outside. This vehicle is one of the most successful and running MPV with great mileage, fuel capacity, and a powerful engine.
The HiAce, due to its unique features, has been a hot favourite amongst ambulance manufacturers who are looking for vehicles that are not only spacious but powerful, comfortable, durable and safe for classifying as an ambulance. The body of the HiAce is long enough and spacious to accommodate all necessary equipment and apparatus needed to fabricate an ambulance.
It comes in several variants, and the prices vary accordingly. Nonetheless, each variant is robust enough to serve well as an ambulance. Moreover, the prices can also vary with the equipment installed in it and the advanced system fitted in the vehicle to serve as advanced life support or cardiac ambulance.
Toyota pays special attention to every detail of the vehicle, be it the interior, exterior or engine; every corner of the vehicle is designed with perfection, keeping in mind durability, safety, and aesthetics. The HiAce has also been designed to give the look of a super luxurious van with an elegant front grill, attractive headlights, and a sleek and modern shape. The back of the van has been provided with a high mounted stop light that adds to the aesthetics as well as contributes to the safety of the vehicle.
The rear glass window has also been provided with a wiper to enjoy a clear and safe drive even in foggy or rainy weather. The body comes with spacious and smooth sliding doors. Sliding doors make the vehicle compact and require less clearance space at parking. The doors move like butter, and with a slight nudge at the handle, the doors will automatically slide open wide. The windows are also sliding with locks. The sliding window design makes using the window easy and also adds style to the vehicle.
For an ambulance, a multi-tone siren along with blaring lights are added to make it visible from a good distance. Vehicle labelling and printing can also be easily done to emphasise being an ambulance.
The interior of the HiAce is very spacious, with comfortable and elaborate seating for 14 people. However, the seats are replaced with a customised setup for an ambulance. The HiAce comes in standard, mid and high roof variants adding more space subsequently. The interior of the HiAce is very comfortable with vibration and shock resistance to enjoy a smooth drive.
For an ambulance, the seats are removed, and a non-slip, washable and antibacterial PVC flooring is done. The interior is reinforced with supporting sheets to make the vehicle thermally insulated; the vehicle is also made soundproof to add to the patient’s comfort. The cabin is provided with all necessary equipment for prehospital care, including a stretcher and all necessary medical equipment.
Cabinets and small countertops are also provided for storing things and carrying out different tasks. To maximise the use of space, under-seat storage is also provided with the squad bench. To ensure proper and sufficient lighting, spot lamps and fluorescent lamps are also provided. A control panel for controlling light, temperature, communication, etc., is also added for efficient functioning.
