Welcome the UK’s first electric ambulance to the Woodall Nicholson family
A few weeks ago, to mark World EV Day, we proudly wrote about the great work our talented team has done to introduce new and innovative electrified products across numerous sectors.
In that blog, we mentioned that there would be more EV news to follow for the blue light sector in due course, and now we can gladly tell you more about it.
This week, our expert ambulance conversion specialist, VCS, announced that it has produced the UK’s first all-electric ambulance. The Electric Dual Crewed Ambulance, or E-DCA, will be the first zero-emissions ambulance to operate in front-line service in Europe, when it joins West Midlands Ambulance Service this month.
This is obviously a great achievement by VCS, and the entire Woodall Nicholson Group, which played a crucial role in developing the E-DCA’s powertrain. It also shows that as the UK continues along its road to zero emissions, Woodall Nicholson and its brands will be there at the cutting edge, driving change across the transport and mobility sector.
Most exciting of all, there’s still more to come!
