BMW i3s Are Now Equipping the London Fire Brigade

Slowly but surely, the BMW i3 is becoming the most preferred model for all kind different social sector like state police or fire brigade. And the last social unit to receive a whole fleet of BMW i3s is no other than London Fire Brigade.

The London Fire Brigade considered that the Vauxhall Astras were a thing of the past and decided to switch to the all-new BMW i3s, all 52 models being equipped with the latest technology. We are thus dealing with the most environmentally-friendly vehicles ever equipping the local Fire Brigade.

Ron Dobson, London Fire Commissioner, is very proud of the good news stating that “Officers often travel at speed across London, so it was essential the cars could stand up to the rigors of being a blue light vehicle, as well as having green credentials. I am proud that the Brigade is leading the move from diesel to electric, which will make a big difference to the air quality for Londoners”.

”In our 150th year, while celebrating our past we’re also investing in the future and it’s vital that we adopt policies today that future generations will thank us for. Who knows, perhaps in the future we will also be the first Brigade to run a fleet of electric fire engines. Taking on the vehicles means we have achieved our ambition to become a ‘Go Ultra Low Company’ – with a commitment to operate low emission vehicles on at least 5% of its fleet by 2020.”
