Rettmobil in Fulda - Covered use for the threesome

The BMW looks like this in action

The Rettmobil trade fair in Fulda is the IAA for flashing light fans. This year, too, the automakers are using them to present new models.

As every year, red and white are the trend colors at the Rettmobil in Fulda (May 15th to 17th). This year's edition of the trade fair for fire engines and ambulances shows, among other things, a brand new mid-size limousine and a hurry classic commercial vehicle.

BMW presents the so-called "concealed version" of the fire service command that was presented at the beginning of the year. The sedan painted in “Melbourner red metallic” does without a roof-mounted blue light unit, and instead activates front flashers in the radiator grille. There is also a magnetic light that can be placed on the roof if necessary. It is powered by a 3-liter diesel with 2,0 kW / 140 hp, which transfers its power to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic. In addition to their latest model, the Munich-based manufacturer is also presenting a selection of vehicles that have been known for some time: from the X190 and 3-series Grand Tourer in an emergency doctor version to the F 2 GS enduro motorcycle with a fire department design.

At Mercedes, the Sprinter can be seen wearing the dress

Mercedes is showing the GLC in Fulda as an emergency doctor vehicle available ex works. The mid-range SUV has basic emergency medical equipment and emergency doctor utensils. The interior is equipped with the AMG Interior Line, reversing camera, smartphone integration and a keyless locking system ensure comfort. The GLC is flanked, among other things, by a Sprinter ambulance and the indestructible off-road farm animal Unimog - in this case as a fire engine. At VW, the focus is on the large Crafter transporter, which can be seen, among other things, as an emergency ambulance with an innovative LED blue light unit and as a logistics equipment trolley. In addition, a Tiguan joins as a fire service command vehicle.

But Fulda is not only used for emergency and government vehicles. Cars modified for the disabled can also be seen. For example, Mercedes offers the Sprinter for rent for people with reduced mobility, while Opel shows the new Zafira Life and the Combo Life with handicapped-friendly conversions.
