While the updated Tata Winger with Harrier-inspired face has started reaching dealership, here's its Ambulance variant. Take a look at it right here.
Tata Winger in its updated form and with a BS-6 compliant engine debuted at Auto Expo this year. The maxi-van is all set to be launched in the country anytime soon, as it has started reaching the dealerships. We recently showcased the pictures of the Staff variant of the 2020 Winger. However, this time around, we came across a set of pictures of its Ambulance avatar. It can be seen that it is the long-wheelbase version of the Winger, and it also gets the roof with increased height. In comparison to the regular passenger-carrying iteration of the Winger, this Ambulance-spec model looks a lot a different, thanks to those reflective graphics and beacons.
While the overall design remains the same as the other variants, the Ambulance model gets reflective decals all around. On the top, a long beacon is mounted to alert other road users. Similarly, a lot of them are placed on the sides and the rear-facet. For the entry and exit in the cabin, it gets rear doors, which open to a maximum of 270-degrees. On the inside, a basic life-support system is installed along with a portable stretcher and side-facing seats for 4 of occupants.
Other amenities in the Winger Ambulance include a foot-operated washbasin with 5-ltr water capacity, foldable doctor’s seat, 800 VA inverter, two 230V AC socket (3-pin), portable steel dust bins, Oxygen delivery system, pressure regulator and humidifier, auto-loading stretcher, spine board, scoop board, ventilator, and defibrillator.
Talking of the driver’s cabin, it gets controls for air conditioning, flashers, and a wheelchair lift. Furthermore, the driver gets an in-built CB radio, which also works in tandem with hooters fixed on this Winger Ambulance to alert other road users.
The Winger Ambulance is offered in two wheelbase options – 3,200 mm and 3,488 mm. Both of these models come with an increased roof height of 2,670 mm, whereas the cabin features a low floor height of 495 mm. Powering the Winger Ambulance is a 2.2L 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that puts out 100 PS of peak power and 200 Nm of max torque. The gearbox duties are performed by a 5-speed MT only. This FWD van comes suspended on McPherson struts at the front and parabolic leaf springs at the rear with anti-roll bars at both the ends.
