BMW introduces series of electric-powered emergency vehicles
The i3 Emergency Vehicles feature a range of optional extras specifically designed for emergency services
MUNICH — BMW introduced a series of solely electric vehicles featuring a range of optional extras specifically designed for emergency services.
The vehicle series, called i3 Emergency Vehicles, is part of the BMW’s i sub-brand.
Departments in Los Angeles, London and Milan recently added the vehicles to their fleet. Depending on the area of use, the vehicles are provided with the corresponding design foils and roof bars.
A special signaling system, front and rear flashers, as well as pressure-chamber loudspeakers, allows responders to warn other drivers that they are on emergency assignment.
The vehicles also feature a permanently installed SIM card that allows the use of intelligent networking technology. The ConnectedRescue system, which is based on BMW Connected Drive, offers the possibility of transmitting information, such as addresses and reason for assignment, from the control center to the vehicle.
