Presented at the Geneva Motor Show, the BMW X3 medical emergency vehicle which generates 130kW (177bhp), makes it a natural alternative for fast rescue operations in virtually any location. BMW has a long experience with special-purpose vehicles and this new creation was specifically designed for medical rescue purposes.
It comes with a plain white exterior finish contrasted by red film and red stripes located on the sides and trunk cover with double stripes on the hood to provide visuals even from afar. Visibility is further enhanced with contour markings with reflective gaps on the sides and the bottom of the trunk cover.
Just like any other emergency rescue transport, it comes with an alarm system that is mounted on the roof, with blue light, electronic siren and the word NOTARZT (emergency doctor) displayed through LED lights.
Two extra flashers are installed inside the hood which provide warning to oncoming traffic when the hood is opened during difficult rescue situations.
The fittings for the inside of the BMW X3 are more subtle. Interior features include a tough metal frame divider between luggage area and passenger compartment, a radio device mounting including power supply and hand unit rest, together with a charging point located in the luggage space.
An extra 12-volt battery with isolation relay guarantees that the BMW X3 will always have power even after extended use.
