The "van-style" ambulance. Not the typical modular body style ambulance. Vanbulances are often seen in crowded city environments where larger ambulances would have difficulty negotiating traffic, etc...
Not only are vanbulances fuggly (that's frigging ugly) the patient campartment is extremely cramped.
