BMW Shows Six Public Service Vehicles At RETTmobil
BMW X3 Paramedic Vehicle is to be presented at the RETTmobil show. The latter is the leading European trade fair for emergency services and mobility. It delivers a great informational platform for paramedics, rescue services and firefighters, as well as public services. Of course, as one of the leading manufacturers, BMW has also prepared an extensive range of special special-purpose vehicles. They are practical and purposefully designed and meet the highest standards in terms of performance, practicality, safety, cost efficiency and fuel economy.
The highlight of the show is the BMW X3 Paramedic Vehicle, which is based on the BMW X3 xDrive20d. It will offer the medical services its iconic credentials of robust agility, dynamic performance and extensive interior adaptability.
Two powerful and fuel-efficient two-liter turbodiesel engines come as a choice: They develop 190 horsepower (140 kW) and deliver and average fuel consumption of just 5.4–5.0 l/100 km (52.3–56.5 mpg).
The next highlight is the BMW X5 high-performance emergency vehicle, based on the BMW X5 xDrive30d. It is equipped with intelligent all-wheel-drive system and 8-speed Steptronic transmission, and is powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line diesel engine.
The powertrain is rated at 258 hp (190 kW) and torque of 560 Nm (413 lb-ft). This ensures that this paramedic vehicle wastes no time getting to the scene of an emergency. Other special highlights here include the high seating position and precise, light-action steering, outstanding spaciousness, extensive interior adaptability and an automatic tailgate.
The other four vehicles that are to be introduced at RETTmobil, are the BMW M235i paramedic vehicle, BMW X1 xDrive20d fire command vehicle, BMW 325d Gran Turismo covert emergency vehicle and at last, but not least- the new BMW R 1200 RT motorcycle.
