BMW introduced the i8 safety car for the Formula E Championship back in August and now the company has displayed the i3 medical and extraction cars.

Set to enter service this weekend, the medical and extraction car closely resemble the road-going variants but has been equipped with light bars and a variety of equipment to suit their respective roles.

According to BMW's Jörg Reimann, "As a pioneer in the field of electric mobility, we know that it is sometimes necessary to break the mould, but that it is still possible to remain true to your fundamental values. For this reason, the fully-electric BMW i3 and our low-emission hybrid, the BMW i8, are still synonymous with the driving pleasure BMW is renowned for. In brief: BMW i and Formula E are a perfect match. This makes it attractive for us to be involved in the inaugural season of the new FIA Formula E Championship. We now have this opportunity as the ‘Official Vehicle Partner’ and are very much looking forward to the 2014/2015 season."
