Fully electric for emergency services: Mercedes-Benz at RETTmobil 2022; With its fully electric fleet, Mercedes-Benz offers a range of innovative solutions for cars and trucks in Hall 1

Stuttgart After a two-year hiatus, the leading international trade fair for rescue and mobility operations – RETTmobil – opens its doors again this year. from 11 to May 13, 2022 The latest innovations in rescue services will be presented at the fairgrounds in Fulda. Alongside the exhibition, there will be an extensive support program that includes training sessions, workshops and presentations, as well as the popular off-road course.

On a 340 square meter stand in Hall 1, Mercedes-Benz has once again become a central part of the trade fair and, in collaboration with the chassis manufacturers, will present a number of highlights. In addition, there is a really special feature in store this year: all Mercedes-Benz cars on display at the event are equipped with a battery-powered electric motor and prove that electric vehicle solutions are also becoming increasingly important to the rescue industry.

A highlight is the ambulance, which was developed in collaboration with Ambulanz Mobile and is based on the eSprinter. eVito Tourer, EQC 400 4MATIC (combined power consumption: 19.4-21.9 kWh/100 km; total CO2 emissions: 0 g/km)[1] Equipped as emergency medical vehicles are also on display. The innovative character is also reflected in the design of the exhibition stand, with a viewing platform offering visitors a glimpse into the future of rescue work. As in previous years, the use of recyclable and lightweight materials puts the focus on sustainability by reducing weight and volume of transport as well as preventing unnecessary waste.

Kristen TrippThe Head of Authorities, Diplomatic and Special Vehicle Sales at Mercedes-Benz Germany commented: “I am delighted that we are able to experience the RETTmobil show in Fulda again this year. Since it was first held in 2001, Mercedes-Benz has participated extensively in and from For this leading trade fair for the salvage industry.. The salvage business is all about reliability, precision and commitment – values ​​that Mercedes-Benz is dedicated to too.In addition, there are increasingly important aspects of sustainability and future viability, which we are particularly emphasizing this year with the show of electric vehicles. battery-powered exclusively in our booth.. In this way we also help our assistants meet the upcoming mobility challenges while at the same time ensuring their future operational capability.

Mercedes-Benz eSprinter as an ambulance

Mercedes Benz trucks and her partner Ambulanz Mobile GmbH & Co. KG from schoonbeek in Saxony-Anhalt Developed an all-electric ambulance (eKTW) based on an electronic printer. Its range is of sufficient dimensions that the vehicle can travel locally without emissions, not only in the city, but also in the urban environment.. Despite the installations required in the patient’s cabin, the eKTW does not exceed a total weight of 3.5 tons. In this way, even drivers who have only a passenger car driving license can carry out patient transfers. For this purpose, care was taken to install special materials that are both weight-saving and of high quality. The electricity of the body is kept separate from that of the base vehicle by installing two controllers and they work independently.. This makes the function of the medical devices independent of the vehicle’s battery.. The electronic printer like the base vehicle is equipped with a powerful 85 kW (116 hp) electric motor. Thanks to the fast charging function, the high-voltage battery can raise the charging state from ten to 80 percent[2] In just twenty minutes. Perfect if you must be quick to use.

The Mercedes-Benz eVito Tourer as an emergency doctor car

The Mercedes-Benz eVito Tourer offers the features necessary to meet the demands of an emergency vehicle: it features a highly efficient electric motor of 150 kW (204 hp) and torque of 345 Nm. Range up to 370 km (eVito Tourer with 90 kWh of usable battery capacity: electricity consumption 29.8-26.2 kWh/100 km, emissions: 0 g/km) 1 allows for a radius large enough for emergency operations.

The fast charging function recharges the eVito Tourer with a maximum charging performance of 110 kW optional[3] To a state of 80 percent charged in 45 minutes 2. The expansion of the emergency medical vehicle offered by Van Partner has been implemented long ago benz ambulance and Environmental Technology Co., Ltd.. The company fitted the vehicle with equipment including a rear cabinet for medical devices, an emergency doctor’s workplace, a thermostatic compressor cabinet, a compressor refrigerator, as well as a roof LED beam signal system and LED headlights.

Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC as an emergency doctor car

The Mercedes-Benz electric trio at RETTmobil was equipped by the EQC 400 4MATIC, which was outfitted as an emergency doctor vehicle by the Mercedes-Benz subsidiary CARS of Wiedemar. For example, the car was additionally equipped with a roof beam signal system and received striking red and yellow chips. In the summer of 2019, the EQC 400 4MATIC was launched as the first vehicle of the Mercedes-Benz brand. It has been a pioneer and a milestone at the same time as part of the group’s strategy “Ambition 2039”. In terms of quality, safety and comfort, the EQC is a hallmark of Mercedes and is convinced of the highest level of noise comfort in the mid-size SUV segment. Added to this is the high driving dynamics thanks to two electric motors on the front and rear axles with a combined power of 300 kW (408 hp). Thanks to a well-developed operating strategy, an electric range of 421-462 km can be achieved. With Mercedes me Charge, Mercedes-Benz offers comprehensive EQC charging services and makes electric mobility convenient and convenient for everyday use. In addition, since then January 2021The EQC has a particularly powerful internal charger of 11 kW as standard, so it can be charged faster at home at the charging station and at public AC charging stations.. The 80 kWh battery can therefore be charged in three hours faster than before Before – It only takes seven and a half hours to charge from 10 to 100 percent SoC (State of Charge). During DC fast charging[4], for example at the IONITY station, the battery is recharged in 40 minutes. The standard 110 kW on-board DC charger is used here.
