German Police To Equip BMW i3
|   Sunday, October 18, 2015
With the BMW i3, patrolling the streets will finally be done with minimal emissions because, for the first time in Germany, that model will be used as a police intervention car .

Peter van Binsbergen, BMW Group sales director for Germany, delivered to the Interior Minister from Bavaria, Joachim Herrmann, three BMW i3 units for use as police cars by the Interior Ministry in Munich. The BMW Group has delivered for the first time a BMW i3 to be used as a vehicle for intervention.
On this occasion, the new design with blue stickers will be used in traffic, and starting from 2016, all patrol and intervention cars of the Bavarian police will be be presented in these colors.

So, the Bavarian police will receive for each specific use the right car: besides multipurpose models, BMW 3 Series and BMW 5 Series, as well as the BMW X3, which will be used in mountainous areas, and those covered by heavy snow, the BMW i3 will now complete the fleet of the Bavarian police. Due to the high level of agility and handling, as well as the extensive functionality, the BMW i3 is the ideal vehicle for use by police in urban areas while being sustainable and environmentally friendly.

With the BMW i3 model, it is for the first time when the Bavarian police intervention cars show a predominantly blue design. BMW i3 is equipped with a special signaling system, RTK 7, from Hella, megaphones and pulsating lights front and rear, for warning other road users. The equipping is complemented with the pre-installation of digital radio from Sepura.

BMW i3 offers alongside a movement with zero local emissions the perfect connectivity with integrated SIM card.
Through the system ConnectedRescue in BMW Connected Drive's portfolio, the car offers optionally the possibility to transmit clearly and intuitively all the important information such as address, or contact person from the car to the control center.

Depending on the software used in the control center it may send, if necessary, the exact coordinates of the place of use. From the operations center, you can select up to 100 cars, and transmit information individually or several at the same time. The system avoids transmission errors and unnecessary travel and ensures that emergency services reach the spot quickly.

Production of the BMW i3 intervention vehicles specially equipped for use by the police was conducted at the BMW Group plant in Leipzig, as well as at authorized and special certificates partners.

Electric vehicles are becoming more attractive for use in the police fleets. Along with zero local emissions and a very low CO2 emissions, they share the particularity that it achieves lower fuel consumption in the city, compared to the extra-urban journeys. Thus, the BMW i3 and BMW Motorrad C evolution Scooter, an electric scooter, is proving to be the perfect patrol vehicles and are already used this year in several cities in Europe such as Barcelona or Sardinia.

From September this year the police from Los Angeles, United States, also received a BMW i3, in an evaluation program for the coming months. So this particular electric model will also wear the famous L.A.P.D. colors.

Instant throttle response and very low center of gravity, plus a short-range turning circle are other important reasons for the BMW i3 to be an excellent vehicle for urban intervention.
