From May 9th to 11th, over 400 companies will be coming together in Fulda for RETTmobil, the leading European trade fair for rescue and mobility. Being held for the twelfth time, this trade fair is an important information platform for rescue, paramedic and fire services. What is more, the extensive programme of exhibitions and events is aimed at the staff of public authorities, local governments and associations who can obtain information on the latest developments and rescue service technology. Finally, the trade fair will offer numerous outdoor demonstrations featuring fire and disaster response measures.

BMW will once again be represented at RETTmobil this year to present its latest developments in the field of task and rescue vehicles. Its diverse programme of special vehicles has been designed based on current serial-production BMW models, so it features not just all high-quality fittings and safety features but also BMW EfficientDynamics Technology, setting a benchmark in terms of economy.

At RETTmobil 2012, BMW will be exhibiting a total of six different models, including two task vehicles based on the new BMW 3 Series Sedan. While a new BMW 328i provides a stand attraction as a camouflaged task vehicle indoors, a new BMW 316d is making an appearance as an eye-catching paramedic vehicle in the entrance area. The latter’s diesel engine is especially environmentally compatible. With an output of 85 kW/116 bhp, a maximum torque of 280 Nm and impressive top speed of 202 km/h, a range of over 1,200 km is possible on a full tank of fuel. The level of CO2 emissions is especially low at just 114 g/km.

The BMW Group has been developing and producing special task vehicles for German and international rescue services for over 50 years. The conception and integration of specific fitting components is carried out in close coordination with specialists of the various authorities and institutions.

The BMW Group takes on the role of a committed partner, contributing innovative technology to successfully tackle the wide-ranging challenges facing special operations.

For all operations: BMW provides a wide-ranging programme of special vehicles.
