Whatever your official or emergency vehicle requirements, with our wide range of BMW and MINI models and BMW motorcycles you’ll find the perfect vehicle to match your requirements. We have decades of experience with emergency vehicles and can therefore tailor them to meet your needs, including all of our electric models. And there’s more: our authority programme can help you with company vehicle procurement and maintenance.
It’s only in extreme operational situations that you find out whether your partner is reliable. Which is why all emergency vehicle parts are co-developed and approved by BMW. This means that you can count on the highest level of quality and safety. Because we subject all emergency vehicles, including special builds, to strict tests. We have been partnering with police authorities for over 60 years, so even your colleagues will only be able to spot camouflaged emergency vehicles at second or third glance.
The BMW sedan and touring models are particularly suitable for intercity travel, while the BMW X models come into their own off-road. All models, including the plug-in hybrid models, feature outstanding active and passive safety features, allowing the crew to concentrate fully on their special mission. You can equip your BMW and MINI models for operational use with, amongst others:
Despite its compact dimensions and carbon fibre chassis, the all-electric BMW i3s is a fully-equipped police car. Its light weight, manoeuvrability and outstanding acceleration from a standing start make it the perfect partner in towns and villages of all sizes. You can rely on its extensive active and passive safety equipment. The BMW i3s can be equipped with optional equipment, including:
From fires to traffic accidents, storm damage, flooding and rescue operations, a fire brigade has a wide variety of tasks and therefore requires versatile, reliable vehicles. All BMW and MINI models are also available as civil fire fighting vehicles.
Our range of fire brigade emergency vehicles is as extensive as the fire department’s tasks are varied: from the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer to the BMW 3 Series and BMW 5 Series and the all-terrain BMW X1, BMW X3 and BMW X5. Thanks to the customisable additional equipment, all of these models can be tailored for use in a wide variety of regions and locations.
When every second counts, the safety and reliability of the emergency vehicle is of paramount importance. Emergency doctors often risk their own lives to save another, so the driver must be able to fully rely on their emergency vehicle.
Perfect roadholding, outstanding traction – even in rapidly changing road conditions (dry, wet, icy or snow-covered) – agility, manoeuvrability and driving safety in all driving situations are the basic requirements for a successful deployment. The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel-drive system in the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer and the off-road BMW X3 and BMW X5 sends power smoothly and variably to the front and rear wheels in fractions of a second, ensuring extra safety when it counts. What’s more, the emergency vehicles can be tailored to meet an emergency doctor’s needs and challenges thanks to the customisable optional equipment.
People who bear the greatest responsibilities should be able to rely on the greatest protection – without having to sacrifice the unique driving experience that only a BMW can offer. BMW has been setting new standards in the design and construction of armoured vehicles for over 40 years. Our current model range continues this tradition in impressive style. Climb in and settle back, safe in the knowledge that you couldn’t be in a more secure or more relaxing environment. Every protection vehicle is custom-built and every stage of the process is carried out with a craftsman’s attention to detail. The result is a vehicle that meets the highest standards of ballistic protection, while also fulfilling the most individual of requirements.
The optimal amount of security for driver and passengers depends on where they are located, the challenges they face in their daily routine and the public attention they attract. And no one should be able to tell that you are sitting in an armoured vehicle. That is why the new BMW X5 Protection VR6 features the latest BMW security technology: armour-plating that is perfectly aligned with the contours of the standard model’s body work. As a result, the protection vehicle looks just like a standard model, both inside and out. The BMW X5 Protection VR6 also comes with Post-Blast Protection, which means that the all-armoured windows remain safe, especially for secondary attacks, with no openings between the window and the bodywork which could be used during additional attacks.
Fast, agile, safe, reliable, robust and extremely impressive: welcome to our range of BMW motorcycles for authorities. Whether for escort, police, fire brigade, disaster control or military duties, our motorcycles are designed specifically to meet your authority’s requirements and areas of use. We are also able to cater to your individual needs thanks to our in-house development department and over 80 years of experience. Unique in the motorcycle sector, but standard for us: your motorcycles will be shipped to you ready to use straight from the assembly line, including any additional equipment.
As a pure enduro, the BMW F750 GS is particularly impressive off-road with its excellent manoeuvrability, precision and driveability and its great load-bearing capacity. The BMW F850 GS is also designed to be extremely robust and thus exceptionally resilient, without sacrificing ergonomic long-distance comfort. BMW F750 GS and BMW F850 GS highlights at a glance:

Our city, municipality, canton and federal authorities perform a wide range of duties. These call for flexible, efficient, safe and reliable mobility, which we provide with our wide range of plug-in hybrids and fully electric BMW and MINI models. Government employees continue to perform their tasks under even the most challenging weather and road conditions, and in remote locations too, made possible thanks to our BMW and MINI models with permanent all-wheel drive. Whatever mobility challenges you face, BMW and MINI have the perfect solution.
New mobility concepts such as e-mobility are playing an increasingly important role in our everyday lives. The BMW Group is one of the pioneers in this field, and you benefit from our know-how, visible in a wide range of our models.
All BMW protection vehicles are subjected to a comprehensive testing regime and officially certified on compliance according to the internationally recognised ballistic guidelines for bullet resistant vehicles, the BRV 2009. So you can be absolutely confident that you are getting the best possible protection. The abbreviation “VR6” (“Vehicle Resistance”), that is part of the BMW X5 Protection VR6 model’s name, represents the resistance class that the special protection vehicle is certified with (VPAM BRV 2009 in the current version). Civil protection vehicles are classified in VR1 to VR10 resistance classes. Additionally, this vehicle is certified according to the ERV 2010 and PAS 300 guidelines.
The armouring of the passenger cell is made out of high-strength steel parts. Combined with the armoured boot divider as standard, it protects against hand- and long guns up to a calibre of 7.62 × 39 mm FeC. Furthermore, the joint area is also protected against a calibre of 7.62 × 39 mm SC. Both calibres are used in the most popular weapon, the Kalaschnikov AK-47. Moreover, the passenger cell can withstand attacks of 15 kilograms TNT from a four metre distance. Additionally an extended roof protects against explosive devices such as the DTG5. An external underbody armour, made out of aluminium and ballistic steel, shields you against shock waves and splinter effects, coming from an attack with DM51 hand grenades. This underbody armour can be strengthened with fibre composites to resist an attack with a HG85 hand grenade.
The vehicle also comes with Post-Blast-Protection, which means that the all-armoured window panes remain in their position so that no openings between glass and body arise. This way we prevent gaps between glass and bodywork, that could be used as further points of attack. On top, the Self-Sealing Fuel Tank, that reseals itself after damage, and underbody armouring ensure that you’re protected all around.
