BMW has a history of showing emergency vehicles at RETTmobil and this year is no different – the company will unveil five specially designed models.

First up, there's an i3 show car which features a white exterior with an Emergency Services livery. The car has also been equipped with a Hella RTK 7 roof bar, LED strobe lights, and preparations for a Sepura digital radio. Since an emergency vehicle needs to be ready at a moment's notice, the i3 features a range extending petrol engine. This helps to improve the model's practicality but it's still a tad slow as the car accelerates from 0-62 miles per hour in 7.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 93 mph.

Moving on, BMW will also showcase a fire service command vehicle based on the X1 xDrive20d. The model is lightly modified as the only noticeable changes are a fire service livery, an LED light bar, and preparations for a Teledux-9 radio system.

Paramedics aren't being over looked either as BMW will introduce a specially designed 220d xDrive Gran Tourer. The model has an eye-catching orange and white exterior with an LED light bar, emergency flashers, and a multi-purpose roof antenna. The car has also been equipped with an additional battery, an accident data recorder, and a steel partition in the luggage compartment. Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 190 horsepower. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the model to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 7.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 135 mph.

One of the more stylish concepts is the X3 xDrive20d command vehicle. It's equipped with the M Sport package as well as heavily tinted rear windows and 20-inch M lightweight alloy wheels. The crossover also has a DBS 4000 roof bar signaling system, an accident data recorder, an auxiliary battery, and a radio preparation package.

Last but not least, the company will unveil an R 1200 RT designed for use by paramedics. Dressed in Glacier silver paint, the motorcycle has blue LED lights, protection rails, and a public address system. There's also an auxiliary battery and two side-mounted "panniers" that hold medical equipment. The motorcycle is powered by a two-cylinder boxer engine that produces 125 hp. It enables the bike to rocket from 0-62 mph in 3.8 seconds on its way to a top speed in excess of 124 mph.
