Whenever a fire occurs, the fire brigade will dispatch a fire truck to the scene to fight the fire as soon as possible, but I don't know if you have noticed that many fire trucks used by domestic fire brigades are imported from foreign countries, and these fire trucks The price is basically more than one million, maybe even more than ten million, so why is the price of fire truck so expensive?
The high unit price of fire trucks is determined by the market first, that is, people often say that "things are rare and expensive." Fire trucks are special operation vehicles. Only a few manufacturers can produce fire trucks with excellent performance. The production quantity is very limited, so the research and development cost of fire trucks will be very high, coupled with the small market of fire trucks, this will lead to the unit price of fire trucks is ridiculously high.
The second reason is that fire trucks are different from other vehicles. Fire trucks have to adapt to various roads and environments, so their chassis are specially made. Others such as the configuration of fire protection facilities and technical requirements are higher than ordinary trucks. . Technical requirements have increased a lot, and prices will naturally increase significantly.
The third reason is that fire trucks have more and more tasks. For example, with the acceleration of urbanization, more and more high-rise buildings in cities make fire rescue more difficult, and the height of fire ladders must be increased accordingly. It can meet the needs of the mission, so now there are ladders over 100 meters in height, and the unit price of a fire truck like this may exceed 10 million. In addition, some are modified by the chassis of armored vehicles and tank vehicles, which will also increase the cost of fire fighting vehicles.

Taken together, it is because the fire trucks are special vehicles, the development is difficult, the market is small, and the domestic fire truck industry is relatively backward. This has led to the current high prices of domestic fire trucks. However, as many Chinese companies producing heavy trucks start to get involved in the fire truck industry, I believe that the performance of domestic fire trucks will also improve steadily. Once one day has the ability to compete directly with foreign fire trucks, the price of imported fire trucks in China will definitely decrease Less.
