BMW C Evolution: stylish eco scooter for the city commuter
BMW has been showing off its latest plan to change the way we commute – the brand new C Evolution electric scooter. The environmentally-conscious scooter is built for those that commute from the suburbs to the city, capable of traveling for 100 kilometres on a single charge.
A working prototype has already been unveiled and driven on streets of London. The BMW C Evolution is not on sale yet, but it will be only a matter of time until the distinctive scooter hits the streets.
BWM says it is the next step in electric scooters, promising unexpected power and performance. With the C Evolution, BMW is also promising an emissions-free ride, with speeds of up to 120 kilometres per hour, and travel for up to 100 kilometres on a single charge. BMW will be hoping the scooter is popular with those that travel into the city from their suburb.
The C Evolution can be charged using a household electric socket, or at a charging station within a city. The C Evolution will fully charge within three hours. What BMW calls ‘Intelligent recuperation’ means the C Evolution can generate electricity automatically using a generator when decelerating.
A digital display shows riders how much juice is left, speed and more at a glance. And a low centre of gravity helps to deliver an agile ride, easy handling and comfy experience, says BMW, who are calling the C Evolution a “step forward towards green mobility.”
A price has yet to be announced, but it is thought that such a scooter could cost around the £14k mark. Would you be seen driving one of these? Let us know in the comments below.
