DocGo announced today the delivery of its new all-electric, zero-emissions ambulance. Significantly more eco-friendly than a standard ambulance, the all-electric vehicle will be the first of its kind to be registered in the U.S. This vehicle marks the first step towards “Zero Emission,” the company’s latest sustainability mission to have an all-electric fleet by 2032.
With several hybrid vehicles already in its fleet, the launch of this all-electric ambulance and “Zero Emission” further demonstrates DocGo’s commitment to advancing green initiatives. This all-electric ambulance is 1/10th as polluting compared to a standard gasoline ambulance. In addition to being less harmful to the planet, the electric ambulance has the potential to lower patient transportation costs due to lower fuel costs and maintenance needs.
“We are tireless in our quest to innovate how care is provided” said DocGo CEO and founder Stan Vashovsky. “Our ‘Zero Emission’ Initiative exemplifies how DocGo is revolutionizing the delivery of mobile medical care, and building a company that’s better for our patients, for our care providers, for our customers, and for the planet.”

DocGo worked with Lightning eMotors to create the new vehicle. “We are honored to have had the opportunity to work alongside DocGo on this exciting initiative,” said Nicholas Bettis, director of marketing and sales operations at Lightning eMotors. “In addition to being environmentally-friendly, the drastic reduction in pollutants is better for the overall health of the patients being transported.”
