Exactly a month after donating 126 units of Mitsubishi Fuso trucks to be used as mobile Covid-19 vaccination centres and testing centres, Vietnam’s top commercial vehicles distributor Truong Hai Auto Corporation (THACO) is once again in the news for the right reasons.
This time around, THACO, which is also the business and industrial partner for Iveco in Vietnam, has donated 30 Iveco Daily ambulances to Ho Chi Minh City in support of its fight against COVID-19.
The ambulances will be used to shuttle COVID-19 patients to hospitals throughout Ho Chi Minh City during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in Vietnam.
These ambulances have been transformed locally by THACO based on IVECO vehicles, which are imported as CKD kits and assembled in THACO’s plant located in Chu Lai Truong Hai Automotive Industrial Zone.
The ambulances are fitted with a full complement of medical equipment, including defibrillators, oscilloscopes, suction machines, and oxygen tank cabinets.
The spacious interior has been optimized to feature two seats to accommodate a nurse and a doctor with the patient in the compartment.
The ambulance is also equipped with a negative pressure disinfection and cleaning system for transporting COVID-19 patients safely.
THACO was established in 1997 and has since become a leader in the Vietnamese commercial vehicles market.
It has been appointed as official distributor and assembler of the IVECO Daily Minibus in Vietnam. The Daily Minibus is supplied in component kits by IVECO for assembly at the THACO factory in the Chu Lai Truong Hai Automobile Industrial Zone, and is sold and supported through the THACO distribution network in Vietnam.
Currently, the Iveco brand’s range of products include the Daily, a vehicle that covers the 3.3 – 7.2 ton vehicle weight segment, the Eurocargo from 6 – 19 tons and, in the heavy segment above 16 tons, the IVECO WAY range with the on-road IVECO S-WAY, the off-road IVECO T-WAY and the IVECO X-WAY for light off-road missions.
In addition, there is the IVECO Astra brand which builds off-road trucks, rigid and articulated dumpers as well as special vehicles.
