The all-electric BMW i3 continues to show its worth, as it is to be used by fire, police and rescue services around the world. Big Motoring World reviews the decision.
Designed solely for electric mobility, the i3 will be the world’s first premium vehicle aligned for the emergency services. Authorities Bavaria, Milan, Los Angeles and London have added the new vehicle to their fleet.
BMW is the only car manufacturer able to tailor their cars’ services to each department of services, exclusively aligning their vehicles to police, rescue and fire service task forces. Digital radio, front and rear flashers and a special signalling system are just some of the features which come as standard with the vehicle. Pressure-chamber loudspeakers are also included.
Convenience, Safety & Intuitiveness
The ConnectedRescue system, which is based on BMW Connected Drive, is able to support the emergency services with important information about incidents. This including addresses, contact people and further details including the surrounding reasons for deployment. This will clearly support operations and be intuitive to the services.
The navigation system is also able to prevent transmission errors, enabling the driver to focus solely on the traffic on the road ahead. This enhances both safety and efficiency of rescue forces.
Another special version of i3 is in use for locally emission-free cash transport in the Polish capital of Warsaw. The Polish bank enables shop owners in Warsaw to request the i3 via mobile app and take their daily takings securely and conveniently.
