Mini electric cars can also become ambulances – Video: @linxlinxjok378/TikTok
Videos posted to TikTok show dozens of Wuling Air EV mini electric cars preparing to go. It is easy to see that these cars have been “modified”.
The shape of the car remains the same, but the ambulance lights are mounted on the roof. The body of the car is predominantly white – the typical color of the medical industry.
The video has got 2.5 million views. Although larger, more compact and with more features than the Hongguang MiniEV, the Wuling Air EV is still classified as a mini electric car. Length and width are less than VinFast VF 3, only more in height. Therefore, many netizens expressed surprise that such a small car can be used as an ambulance.
One person asked, “If the sick person is inside, will the family members be sitting on the terrace?” Another wrote, “Not so much, but they must be following on motorbikes.” “Or maybe they’re in the driver’s seat,” replied another.
‘The patient will sit behind the driver’, ‘It would be better to have a patrol car in the village’… are some other funny responses.
One of the comments allayed those concerns, stating that the rear seats as well as the front seats could be folded down and converted into beds for patients.
Some think it may not be an ambulance, but simply a vehicle for patients who are still relatively awake, even able to sit up, but need to lie down. Not there. “Just a service car”, one person left a brief comment.
