The lead vehicle, the BMW i3s, has exactly the qualities required for a successful marathon run: intelligent and responsible use of resources. And with these skills, it guides the runners safely, purposefully and environmentally friendly through the capital.
More than 50 vehicles and around 15 C evolution class scooters are part of the fleet of support vehicles provided by BMW for the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON. The ultra-modern BMW i8 Coupé is also part of this fleet and accompanies the runners as a safety car. This unique plug-in hybrid with modern BMW eDrive technology underlines, that sustainability goes hand in hand with a premium driving experience. With this commitment, BMW supports the sustainable development of running.
