The Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series has been certified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to transport COVID-19 vaccines, thanks to a medical-grade refrigerator.

With some vaccines needing to be kept at constant low temperatures to be effective, Toyota has partnered with B Medical Systems to fit a fridge in the back of the LandCruiser Troopcarrier, to help get the vaccine to some of the most remote parts of the world.

The 396-litre fridge can carry 400 vaccine doses, with its own independent battery ensuring 16 hours of operation. The LandCruiser helps power the system when driving, and can be connected to an external power source when parked.

It's estimated around 20 per cent of vaccines supplied to developing nations are disposed of due to a lack of suitable refrigeration.

Approaching nearly four decades of production, the 70 Series has been a favoured vehicle in some of the harshest environments across the globe, including Africa, the Middle East, and Australia.
