The more electric vehicles appear on the roads, the more often they also enter the fleets of rescue or police forces. So it was no surprise to learn that a BMW iX has arrived in the police fleet in Switzerland.
The BMW iX electric SUV doesn’t exactly impress with its graceful appearance, on the contrary, it looks quite intimidating among the other cars on the street, especially when it has law enforcement insignia stuck on it.
An electric BMW iX has been purchased by the Swiss police for its fleet, having been delivered a few days ago by the brand’s dealer in this country.

Of course, the car does not enter police service in the production version as for civilian customers, a number of modifications are required. In addition to the stickers that comply with the specifications of the Swiss police, we are talking, for example, about the display on the roof, through which directions can be transmitted to drivers. Either to stop, to follow the police vehicle or to be aware of an accident in the area.
Blue beacons are installed at the front, two yellow beacons are placed at the rear, and other signals are placed on the sides of the vehicle so that drivers approaching from the side can see them. Inside, an additional screen was installed.
On the other hand, the powertrain has not been modified. The model used is a BMW iX xDrive50. In practical terms, this version produces 385 kW (523 hp), has all-wheel drive and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.
This is not the first electric vehicle in Swiss police service. Some Swiss police departments use the BMW i3 as a patrol car.
