REV's Leader delivers all-electric ambulance to DocGo

March 4, 2022
In addition to sustainability benefits, the EV has the potential to lower patient transportation costs due to lower fuel costs and maintenance needs

REV Group Inc. has delivered an all-electric, zero-emission ambulance to DocGo, a last-mile mobile health services and integrated medical mobility provider.

Manufactured at Leader Emergency Vehicles in South El Monte, CA, this all-electric ambulance eliminates the pollution of a standard gasoline ambulance and has the potential to lower patient transportation costs due to lower fuel costs and maintenance needs, the manufacturer notes.

“We are committed to lead the industry in electric ambulances to meet the sustainability missions of our customers, such as DocGo’s goal to have an all-electric fleet by 2032,” said Anoop Prakash, president, REV Ambulance Group. “We’re delighted to help DocGo reach their target, with the support of our partner Lightning eMotors.”

Lightning eMotors, which provides zero emissions medium duty commercial vehicles and electric vehicle technology for fleets, worked with Leader and DocGo to create the new vehicle. The Ford Transit T350 Type II ambulance chassis was electrified at Lightning eMotors and built at Leader’s facility.

Leader’s High Roof Transit van offers up to 86 kWh of battery capacity that can be charged via Level 2 AC charging or DC fast charging. This model is equipped with dual rear wheels, increased interior headroom to aid crews in loading and unloading their patient, as well as an extended body length to provide more workspace for patient care.

"We are honored to have had the opportunity to work alongside Leader on this exciting initiative for DocGo," said Nick Bettis, director of marketing and sales operations at Lightning eMotors. “In addition to being environmentally-friendly, the drastic reduction in pollutants is better for the overall health of the patients being transported.”
