German tuning company turns BMW i4 M50 into sleek electric patrol car
While some American law enforcement agencies have already tested the Tesla Model Y's suitability as an environmentally friendly patrol car, their international counterparts may follow suit by adopting more EVs in the not-too-distant future. Therefore, a reputable German tuning company has now illustrated how a possible "LE" edition of a notable Tesla Model 3 competitor, the BMW i4, could look like.
As part of the "Tune It! Safe!" marketing campaign, AC Schnitzer has brought a few changes to the BMW i4 police car, which for example comes in a familiar color combination of silver, blue and yellow. Furthermore, the tuned sedan is up to 9.8 inches lower than the regular production model, and it also features custom 20-inch rims and Ventus S1 Evo 3 tires provided by the South Korean sponsor Hankook. On the front, the modified BMW i4 looks a bit more aggressive thanks to a new splitter, additional design elements and two LED warning lights that are neatly integrated into BMW's oversized kidney-shaped grille.
On the other end, the BMW i4 sports a black spoiler that will probably be detrimental to the range of the aerodynamically efficient electric sedan. AC Schnitzer has also added a few touches to the luxurious interior of the EV, but in terms of performance, the law enforcement edition still has 536 horsepower which can accelerate the car from 0 to 60 mph in roughly 3.7 seconds. It is not much of a surprise that the drivetrain of the BMW i4 M50 remained unchanged, since this concept car is supposed to promote the safe tuning of personal vehicles, and performance enhancements are tightly regulated in Germany.
