The ambulances have power steering and factory-fitted air suspension as standard. Four conversions were at the show. Developed by the Universal Vehicle Group (UVG), the Premia bodied version on a Convoy chassis cab has a powerful 3.5 litre V8 petrol engine and automatic gearbox. The GRP body has a stainless steel subframe, is remountable and features a roll bar and superior insulation.
It has a sliding side load door to the saloon and either strobe or halogen integral beacons. The Convoy is equipped with integral lights for illumination at the scene of accidents.
The second vehicle is a chassis cab fitted with a UVG Laser body and a 2.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine matched to a five speed gearbox. Pathfinder has converted a Convoy high roof van into a welfare vehicle, aimed at the social service sector with accommodation for up to nine passengers and two wheelchairs. It has a stowaway tail-lift for wheelchair accessibility. It can also transfer out-patients.
Based on the high roof Convoy van, the Stafford ambulance seats up to 10 and two in wheelchairs. The vehicle has standard air suspension, an electrically operated profiled-plug side load door, electric step and a rear underfloor wheelchair lift.
