Meet the Mustang Mach-E Ambulance

On a busy city night, first responders need to be prepared for anything to happen at any moment, and must be prepared to make split second decisions that could save a life. We joined London Ambulance Service paramedic Marek Lowicz-Brady as he patrolled the streets of London on a Saturday night, responding to emergencies in his specially converted Mustang Mach-E® ambulance.

London Ambulance Service have a goal: to have the lowest emitting fleet of emergency vehicles possible. As agile as it is efficient, with high performance and zero CO2 emissions while driving, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is an integral part of how they are planning to do just that. More than 40 Mach-E’s are already in operation as Fast Response Unit vehicles, chosen for their balance of speed, agility, and a range capable of lasting the demands of a non-stop 12-hour shift. London Ambulance Service believes this is the largest fleet of electric emergency vehicles in any service in the UK.

"These cars have a range of about 300 miles before they need recharging. It was really important to us to choose an electric vehicle where the life of the battery met the entire shift which is twelve hours, and could be delivered on the single charge.”
Daniel Elkeles, LAS Chief Executive

For Marek and his team, the most important thing is delivering the necessary medical attention as quickly as possible, especially in emergency situations. And for that the Ford Mustang Mach-E is proving to be the perfect partner.

Ford engineers met with blue light services, to truly understand the specific demands of an emergency services vehicle. One major concern raised was the excessive amount of extra equipment required in the cabin, for navigation and the multi-data terminal that provides vital information on their call outs. 

Our integrated services team developed an innovative solution: a SYNC integration model, allowing the screen to seamlessly switch from regular customer view to an input view from the service computer installed in the boot. Paramedics now have all the information on the patient they’re attending to, and the most efficient route to get them there. Reducing the amount of clutter, and a significantly cheaper option than adding additional equipment.
