BMW emergency vehicles: customised functionality and performance.

BMW is presenting a total of six different models at this year’s RETTmobil, beginning with an attractive and eye-catching exhibit at the main entrance to the show: a BMW M235i paramedic vehicle. Highlights at the trade fair stand itself include paramedic vehicles based on the new BMW X5 xDrive30d and on the BMW X3 xDrive20d, and a BMW X1 xDrive20d fire command vehicle. Finally, the BMW Group is also exhibiting a BMW 325d Gran Turismo covert emergency vehicle and the new BMW R 1200 RT motorcycle.

BMW X5 as a fast, high-performance emergency vehicle.

When every second counts, a powerful engine and optimal handling are crucial qualities in an emergency vehicle. The new BMW X5 xDrive30d (combined fuel consumption: 6.2* l/100 km [45.6 mpg imp]; combined CO2 emissions: 164–162 g/km) is a natural choice for the job. Equipped with an intelligent all-wheel-drive system and 8-speed Steptronic transmission, this Sports Activity Vehicle is powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line diesel engine which combines impressive performance with high efficiency. Peak output of 190 kW (258 hp) and powerful peak torque of 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) ensure that this paramedic vehicle wastes no time getting to the scene of an emergency. The special advantages of this model include its high seating position and precise, light-action steering. Further plus points are the outstanding spaciousness, extensive interior adaptability and an automatic tailgate which allows emergency equipment to be quickly accessed. Amongst other things, the new-generation BMW X5 boasts an extended engine line-up that includes a new entry-level version, the BMW X5 sDrive25d (combined fuel consumption: 5.7–5.6* l/100 km [49.6–50.4 mpg imp]; combined CO2 emissions: 151–149 g/km).
