BMW Unveils New Emergency Vehicles

Paramedic variants will be on display in Germany.

RETTmobil is Europe’s largest emergency services and mobility trade fair, and this year more athan 450 exhibitors will descend on the German city of Fulda to showcase their wares. Amongst them will be BMW, who has just unveiled its lineup ahead of the event. First up, the carmaker will display a 325d Gran Turismo converted into a ‘covert’ emergency vehicle. Virtually identical to a standard 3 Series Gran Turismo, the car comes with purpose-built emergency equipment that’s integrated into the model ensuring there are “few indications of the vehicle’s special role.”

It can also sprint from 0-62 mph in 7.1 seconds on to a top speed of 149 mph. The paramedic variant of the M235i Coupe is faster still, with “unadulterated sporty performance” courtesy of a 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder unit rated at 326 hp and 322 lb-ft of torque. 0-62 mph is clocked in 5.0 seconds, while the coupe is good for 29 mpg. BMW will also have paramedic versions of the X5 xDrive30d and X3 xDrive20d on display, as well as an 1200 RT motorbike and X1 fire command vehicle.
