I have been googling and falling into rabbit hole after rabbit hole, yet still have not found exactly what I am looking for. With our diverse membership here, I was hoping some of ya'll may have some input to offer. I am thinking more of what I am looking for may come from the West Coast as well.

I am applying for a grant, however I need to adhere to it's stipulations which are environmentally friendly and community well being. I am trying to spec out an ambulance that meets this requirement. I have found elements of what I need on different models, but not the "Eureka!" one.

Looking for a Ford Transit style ambulance. Electric? Hybrid? Or are they just "eco friendly"? No bio-diesel due to lack of availability in this area. Solar panels on top like some of Austin's trucks? Any other green features you can think of or find?

Who wants to play? LOL What ya got?

We have some hybrid Ford F-350 type 3s that we have been using for ~6 months now. I believe they are manufactured by Leader. I’ve only been in them one time and the only thing I noticed was the turning radius was absolute garbage.

I know this doesn't help, but I was thinking about this exact topic about a week ago when walking by an ambulance with the distinct diesel smell.

After far too much Googling I noticed a few places had hybrid ambulances, ZeroRPM was a thing, but not much more.

Lots of press releases, little actual information or documentation.

Good luck!

StealthPower is who most ambulance manufacturers use for idle reduction things. I think they'll work with about anyone.
