Battery Electric, Zero-Emissions Ambulance

Leading the ambulance industry with sustainable, fuel-efficient electric vehicles.

AEV has partnered with Lightning eMotors, a provider of premium commercial electric vehicle power trains, to build our Type II battery electric ambulance.

The power train components, including batteries and power electronics, are proven with on-road validation, with the electric motors providing industry-leading power and torque performance. Utilizing this battery electric chassis conversion, AEV completes the ambulance per the customer’s order requirements.

Power Train

  • Utilizes a three-phase permanent magnet electric traction motor

Electric Motor

  • Fewer moving parts, leading to fewer required preventative maintenance tasks and lower overall service costs versus internal combustion engines


  • Uses precision active thermal management to control battery temperatures, delivering improved performance, safety and longer battery life


  • Direct Current fast charging at up to 80 kWh (DCFC) allows 80% charging in as few as 45 minutes3
  • More readily available Alternating Current charging can accept
    up to 13.2 kW
    charging rate
  • Industry-standard
    SAE J1772 CCS1 combo charging connector

Regenerative Braking

  • Electric vehicles
    capture energy, using regenerative braking, where the electric motor acts as a generator to slow the vehicle and recharge the batteries
  • Reduces brake wear

EV Ambulance Features

  • Offered on Ford T350 Transit, High Roof, Extended Length and Dual Rear Wheels minimum 10,360# GVWR
    • Affords increased interior headroom and overall space for crews to provide better patient care
