Always at your service.
Paramedics, firefighters, uniformed and undercover police – everyone who works in the emergency services has one thing in common: their work regularly requires outstanding performance in high-pressure situations. Their emergency vehicle is of key importance here. BMW Authority Vehicles – ranging from the BMW 1 Series, BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer, 3 Series, 5 Series and 7 Series through to the BMW X1, X3 and X5 models – are systematically developed and perfected together with the authorities around the world.
BMW 1 SERIES.
With its compact external dimensions, the BMW 1 Series has an impressively spacious interior. Efficient engines and state-of-the-art running gear technologies guarantee full dynamics and agility, while innovative driver assistance systems ensure that you always reach your destination safely. Equipped with intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive, it effortlessly masters even challenging driving situations. The BMW Live Cockpit, in conjunction with the optional BMW Head-up display, ensures that all important information is available at a glance at all times.
BMW 2 SERIES GRAN TOURER.
The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer combines robust reliability with versatility that is evident both in its handling and in its interior. The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive masters even challenging driving situations. An elevated seat position and the BMW Head-up display ensure that all information is available at a glance. Large doors and a high roof line facilitate easy entry into. In addition, the luggage compartment offers maximum flexibility and a volume of up to 1905 litres while its floor can bear loads of up to 420 kg.
BMW 3 SERIES.
The BMW 3 Series combines outstanding agility and utility. This is primarily ensured by the running gear with ideal axle-load distribution and rear-wheel drive. The intelligent all-wheel drive BMW xDrive ensures even better traction and directional stability. The new plug-in hybrids combine electric drive with a powerful combustion engines. Depending on the drive mode, you can drive silently with zero local emissions or with enduring dynamic. Functions, such as the opening rear window, make the BMW 3 Series Touring practical Authority Vehicle.
BMW 5 SERIES.
Emergency service personnel benefits from the outstanding qualities of the BMW 5 Series. For example, BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engines and plug-in hybrids set benchmarks in their class. And in demanding situations, there is no better workplace than the driver-oriented cockpit. Furthermore, the Integral Active Steering improves manoeuvrability while it increases driving stability at the same time. Even more variability offers the BMW 5 Series Touring: it boasts an above average loading volume and an impressive payload.
BMW 7 SERIES.
BMW offers additional equipment for the BMW 7 Series in order to be ready for use at any time, even as an official escort vehicle for representative duties or undercover investigations. The specialised requirements for these vehicles already impact the planning phase of the production vehicles and thus allow for the intelligent integration of individual and highly discrete special equipment. The innovative and sustainable plug-in hybrid drive-trains unite the best engine variants of both worlds.
BMW X SERIES.
Ready for service, everywhere.
Explore the advantages of the BMW X Series: With the raised seating position, optimal traction, and fuel-efficient engines, you will find a BMW X model ready to handle all your tasks.
With its modern BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines the BMW X1 combines top performance with efficiency. Thanks its low centre of gravity and the near optimal axle-load distribution the it impresses with its outstanding agility – no matter whether you opt for the sDrive model with rearwheel drive or the xDrive model with intelligent all-wheel-drive. The raised seat position and the BMW Head-up display guarantee perfect overview in any situation. The spacious interior and the split rear bench seat are ready for any mission.
The BMW X3 is designed for tough and demanding missions, even on difficult terrain – and impresses with exceptional versatility. Innovative technologies, such as the intelligent BMW xDrive, support in every situation. BMW EfficientDynamics technologies and the plug-in hybrid drive-trains increase the performance and reduce consumption at the same time. The flat window line and raised seat position provide a superior overview while the active seat ventilation won’t let you break sweat even in critical situations.
The BMW X5 offers outstanding performance on any terrain thanks to the BMW TwinPower Turbo engines and intelligent BMW xDrive. The off-road modes adapt even finer to the current surface. And the plug-in hybrid combines sustainablity and dynamics perfectly. State-of-the-art driver assistance systems and seamless networking offer maximum comfort and the greatest possible level of safety. As a BMW Authority Vehicle the BMW X5 has the largest loading volume and the highest maximum payload.
BMW Motorrad impresses with a sophisticated concept that meets the highest demands in terms of flexibility, agile handling, robust technology, and dynamic appearance. Here, highly developed safety components are combined with first-class smoothness, long-distance comfort, and extraordinary power potential to form an exemplary synthesis, which is particularly important for work in the police, rescue and escort services. The specially developed rider’s equipment for authorities rounds off the holistic concept.
SPECIALISTS FOR ALL SITUATIONS.
TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATIONS.
TECHNOLOGY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL.
Innovations such as BMW ConnectedDrive consistently make the hard work easier. Meanwhile the BMW EfficientDynamics ensures that the operation is financially prudent – and environmentally sustainable.
THE HEART OF BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS.
The innovative BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol and diesel engines enable dynamic power delivery and excellent response characteristics even at low engine speeds. At the same time, they are particularly economical and low-emission. The petrol engines make use of innovative turbo charger technology, Valvetronic inclusive double VANOS and High Precision Injection. Turbochargers with variable turbine geometry are also used for the diesel engines. Combined with the latest generation common rail direct injection, this results in optimised combustion.
ELECTROMOBILITY FROM BMW.
With the combination of a petrol engine and an electric motor, BMW plug-in hybrids guarantee maximum flexibility and are therefore perfectly suited to the individual requirements and needs of your daily duties. Depending on the model, you can drive up to 70 km purely electric and locally emission free. And on longer journeys or at high speed you can still depend on the range and the dynamic of the combustion engine.
In 2022 BMW will launch two fully electric BMW Authority Vehicles on the market.
THE BASIS FOR COMFORT AND DYNAMICS.
BMW offers the perfect running gear for every situation:
- BMW xDrive distributes the power between each wheel.
- Front-wheel drive allows a generous interior.
- Integral Active Steering improves manoeuvrability and agility as well as stability and comfort.
- The Adaptive suspension adapts the dampers automatically.
- Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) stabilises the vehicle.
- Hill Descent Control manages downhill stretches.
- Adaptive 2-axle air suspension enables particularly comfortable but dynamic driving regardless of the payload.
LESS EMISSIONS. MORE DRIVING PLEASURE.
BMW EfficientDynamics is a technology package that not only includes the drive-train, but also the entire vehicle concept and smart energy management. Available as standard in every BMW, a series of innovative technologies contributes to continuously increasing efficiency. Through engine efficiency measures, electrification, lightweight construction and aerodynamic optimisations, BMW has succeeded in significantly reducing the CO2 emissions of its fleet.
