This is based on the four-wheel drive Rodius EX and is marketed as an off-road ambulance, with the first unit going to a paramedic that covers off-road competitions. The carmaker brags that the vehicle offers all the right kind of assets, sich as a smooth ride, low loading access, as well as interior space and rear air conditioning. The SsangYong Rodius Ambulance comes with a price of GBP23,000 (EUR28,618 or USD36,000), using a 2,7-liter diesel engine, as well as a 4x4 system with a low range.

"Working with David [the aforementioned paramedic] and our suppliers we also designed a strong, lightweight and secure storage system for all the equipment needed. It is practical, versatile, well finished and all at a highly competitive price. The installation is also easily demounted to convert the ambulance back to being a comfortable family MPV," said Said Dean Wood, partner of Firs SsangYong.
