‘surgo’ is a 4×4 off-road vehicle designed for mountain rescue services. its innovative suspension designed and developed by the automotive industry institute in warsaw is a key point of its construction that allows unprecedented off-road capabilities to be achieved. the ability to lock its entire body in shifted position, system of additional springs and shock absorbers, approach and departure angles nearing 90 degrees are just some of the features that allow ‘surgo’ to travel through extremely rough terrain.

polish based studio 2sympleks‘ design process has been followed by extensive research and surveys with the help of GOPR and TOPR rescuers. the briefing was based on the most crucial intervention issues, existing solutions and potential improvements.

the cabin interior is designed to accommodate up to eight rescuers and allows two wounded on stretchers to be safely transported. thanks to its robust construction, use of durable materials and hard surfaces, ‘surgo’ is well fitted to deal with dirt, moisture and mechanical stresses.
