Supro Ambulance's relatively affordable price makes it a viable solution, especially in current times when ambulances are key lifelines for frontline healthcare workers. Powered by Mahindra’s DI engine, the vehicle delivers 47 hp of power and has 100 Nm of torque on offer. Additionally, the relatively compact dimensions of the vehicle means that it can handle narrow Indian roads for quicker patient movement as well.

Supro Ambulance also comes with a warranty of 2 years/ 60,000 kms.
