The Shvabe holding, owned by Rostec, is preparing to present two of its new products – the Lada Niva KUB NN sanitary minivan with the color-graphic inscription “Medical Service” and an all-wheel drive ambulance based on the Lada Niva Prima NN. Both machines will make their debut at the international military-technical forum “Army-2022”, which will be held in Kubinka near Moscow from August 15 to 21.
“The key exhibits in the civilian direction will be the nine-seater medical service minivan Lada Niva KUB NN and the all-wheel drive ambulance Lada Niva Prima NN. They will be presented by the holding’s subsidiaries Shvabe-SpetsAvto and Shvabe-Moscow,” said Sergei Dmitrochenko, deputy general director of Shvabe.

The ambulance, in turn, was built on an improved off-road wheelbase with a length of 3050 mm. The cabin, isolated from the driver, can accommodate up to five people (a medical team of three doctors and two patients), and high ground clearance and a more powerful engine will allow Niva Prima NN to become an indispensable means of transportation for doctors and patients in rural areas.
