Ghe-o Motors unveiled the Rescue

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 16, 2013

There are an infinite number of applications for this extreme off-roader – the Rescue vehicle from Romanian specialty marque Ghe-o Motors. The Ghe-o Motors Rescue, which was entirely designed and built in Romania, is developed to be driven practically past any type of terrain. It offers fire extinguishing and medical support services and can transport as many as 11 people. It also features a foldable cargo space on the roof.

The vehicle has pneumatic pillows on the wheels that would prevent it from sinking into the snow and that will enable it to float on water. It is compatible with various accessories like water pumps for firefighters and a 620-liter water tank. If the vehicle has to be driven through extremely difficult terrain, it can be fitted with tracks on rear wheels. For very slippery roads, it can get a passenger trailer without wheels.

The vehicle measures 5.2 meters (204.7 inches) long, 2.7 meters (106.3 inches) wide and 2.39 meters (94.1 inches) tall. It weighs 3.2 tons (6,400 lbs). Different types of gasoline engines can be used for the vehicle, with outputs ranging from 340 bhp (253 kW) to 500 bhp (373 kW). It can also be powered by diesels starting at 218 bhp (163 kW) and reaching 304 bhp (227 kW). Ghe-o Motors claims that these engines could get water and electromagnetic protection for military uses.
