This Independence day Mahindra and Mahindra is paying tribute to the heroic services of our health care workers by providing free sanitization and vehicle cleaning for its ambulances. The brand has announced that it will be hosting a ‘Care Camp’ for its ambulances between 5th August 2020 and 14th August 2020 dedicated to this service.
In India, there are 619,088 active COVID-19 cases and healthcare professionals around the country have taken care of 14,27,005 cases who have been cured or discharged but 42,518 have also succumbed to the disease. The notoriously infectious disease can be avoided by maintaining good hygiene standards, social distancing and by keeping the vehicles sanitised.
One way to keep the virus spread in check is to keep the vehicle clean and sanitised at all times. Ambulances are a vital part of our healthcare infrastructure and these unprecedented times ambulances are the first point of contact when an infected individual contact a healthcare professional. They have also proven useful in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic by providing the first response.
The Care Camp will be dedicated to these ambulances and Mahindra workshops will sanitize 40 high-touch points in the interiors & exteriors of the ambulance cabin. The ambulances will also receive a thorough sanitization process on the exteriors using sodium hypochlorite solution. Mahindra ambulances will also go through a comprehensive monsoon-related vehicle check-up at the Care Camp.
In addition, Mahindra will also provide a free car wash as part of the camp, by deploying its water-saving ‘m-EcoWash’ solution which uses specialized cleaning compounds and just one litre of water. The brand has also announced that Mahindra service centres have started accepting appointments for these services.
In the recent past, Mahindra also launched a customized vehicle ownership schemes for COVID-19 caretakers. In May, Mahindra launched special finance schemes for COVID warriors under which Doctor’s get a 50% waiver on processing fees and 90 days moratorium that gives them to buy now and pay later. The brand is offering a high funding scheme for Police personnel and pick-up vehicle owners can now own a Mahindra BS6 pick-up and pay the EMI same as the BS4.
The brand is also gearing up to introduce the all-new 2020 Mahindra Thar that will make its debut on the occasion of India’s 74th Independence Day – 15th August 2020.
