There are several vehicles sold out of the country that we desire we could arrange stateside. The SsangYong Rodius is not one of them, but at least the Korean auto manufacturer has found a use for the awkwardly balanced crossover.
Based on the four-wheel-drive Rodius EX, SsangYong has introduced an ambulance version in the United Kingdom. The first instance was developed specially for a paramedic who specializes in off-road sporting events where an all-wheel-drive ambulance could create the difference between life and death for an applicant. The Rodius' low weight floor, high roof and large interior were also at the top of the requirement list, but so was its cost-efficiency. At last day, you can say what you will about the Rodius – it does provide a high versatility-to-price ratio. Costs for the basic version begin at £14,995, but even the top-of-the-line Rodius 270 EX on which the ambulance was based still only comes in at £20,995 while packing a 2.7-liter diesel with all-wheel drive and a Mercedes-Benz-sourced five-speed automatic. All the chimes and whistles are included, as well, along with enough room to lay even the tallest enduring down in the back, plus all the medical apparatus required for the job.
