Hannover / Wolfsburg / Fulda, 10 May 2017 - At the RETTmobil (10-12 May in Fulda), Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles (VWN) and Volkswagen Passenger Cars will present a total of eight redevelopment solutions for the fire brigade, emergency physician, police and passenger transport. At the 17th European Leading Trade Fair for Rescue and Mobility, the two brands in Hall 3 show a wide range of special vehicles based on passenger cars and commercial vehicles.
In addition to the new 8-speed automatic transmission, the Crafter, which has been converted from the fire brigade to the fire brigade, is equipped with an integrated, customer-specific function control unit from VWN. With this control unit, it is possible to transfer the charge state of the lithium-ion battery directly to the vehicle-specific display via an energy management app. This means that the driver is not only informed about the charging status at any time, but can also use the app to control all the fire-fighting equipment supplied by the lithium-ion battery.
With numerous special equipment, Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge is presenting a transporter, which the bodybuilder Freytag has converted into an emergency medical vehicle. For fast deployment, even in rough terrain, the rescue vehicle is particularly easy to reach thanks to a special lifting of Freytag. In addition to an individual interior design, the transporter also features a zircon warning system, a Martinshorn warning system on the front roof beam and an integrated rear warning system.
The Volkswagen Crafter also offers a wide range of applications as a base vehicle for passenger transport. AMF Bruns, manufacturer and convertor of handicapped vehicles, has converted a fully glazed Crafter box to the RETTmobil without a partition for the transport of mobility-restricted persons. Fitted with an AMF linear wheelchair lift including anti-roll bar, hand pump and hand rail as well as an electric step, the conversion also includes a Smartfloor aluminum floor with eight raster rails. In this Crafter have a total of six people, including a wheelchair user.
In addition, three other partners from Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge are exhibiting the new Crafter as a rescue carrier on their own stand:
The new Crafter WAS 500 RTW from Wietmarscher Ambulanz- und Sonderfahrzeug GmbH in hall 1 / booth 103 is the first to be seen. The WAS Design warning system, especially designed for the Crafter, features improved side and front visibility. The luggage compartment and interior fittings are equipped with the latest standards of assistance systems, including radio frequency identification (RFID) based equipment control and a silent closing mechanism for all doors.
Ambulance Mobile will present a real eye-catcher in Hall 3 / Stand 304 with the futuristic design of its 'Delfis' variant: High-performance LEDs in the dynamically shaped roof structure as well as more headroom in the interior are among the highlights of this Crafter-based rescue van.
The company Strobel will be exhibiting in Box 3 / Stand 302 a box set including full equipment. Also a rescue vehicle based on the new Crafter.
These are the highlights of Volkswagen Passenger Cars:
The new Tiguan can be seen as a command post for the first time. The special signaling system Haensch DBS 5000 with front and side headlights, high-performance front-flashes and the LED rear-lights in the luggage compartment flap provide for the optical grill as well as the LED front-flashers in the radiator grille. An accident data store and the extensive Tetra radio preparation for MRT and HRT supplement the additional equipment.
The new e-Golf is presented in Fulda as a radio service car for the first time. The special signaling system Haensch DBS 4000 and the digital radio preparation for Sepura SRG-3900 with HBC-2 ensure the full range of applications as well as the specifics such as navigation system and automatic distance control ACC up to 210 km / h.
On the outside, Volkswagen shows a Golf Alltrack and a Passat Variant, both built as commandos. The extensive special equipment of these vehicles includes, for example, the Sepura MRT radio preparation. In addition, the Sharan, also extensively equipped, will be presented as an emergency medical vehicle.
