Hyundai looks to answer need for improved medical transport via Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there should be at least one ambulance serving every 100,000 patients. That said, having an EMS on the ready is no longer a luxury, but a practical response to providing the public quick, efficient, timely, and perhaps more affordable life-saving services.


  • What variant of the Hyundai Grand Starex van can be used as an ambulance?

    The Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo can be configured into an ambulance.
  • What safety features does the Grand Starex Cargo offer?

    The Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo has ABS and two air bags at the front.
  • It therefore pays to have at least the basic ambulance to serve your local community, school, company, or neighborhood association.

    Hyundai sees the Cargo variant of the Grand Starex as a good fit for improving the medical transportation system in the country. According to Hyundai, the Hyundai Starex Cargo has the potential of meeting the Department of Health’s (DOH) standards for a Type-1 ambulance with its spacious interior, sleek but tough body, drive power, and smooth handling.


    The van is designed with a front-mounted engine that cuts down noise, vibration, harshness, and heat. It also absorbs the impact in the event of a frontal collision, protecting the driver and front passengers.

    It also has several safety features like an anti-lock braking system (ABS), which makes for a smooth, comfortable, and safe ride for your precious passengers and equipment. Two airbags at the front provide added protection to the driver and front passenger.

    Getting in and out of the ambulance is also easier thanks to its twin-swing rear doors and the signature dual sliding doors. In addition, the rear of the van is highly customizable.


    The Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance also has the right powertrain to get you through with a 2.5 CRDi (Euro 4) engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission.


    Hyundai’s 5-Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty assures peace of mind in the first five years of ownership and operation, backed by Hyundai’s signature technology and quality engineering poured into manufacturing every unit.

    Hyundai believes that with efficient management and administration, every Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance put at the service of the community can give the much-needed boost to the local healthcare system, post-COVID.
