The new BMW C evolution.
Its more than a year after the electric scooter by Bmw was announced. Today the new scooter was introduced. The electric motor of the C evolution is liquid-cooled, while the high-voltage battery is air -cooled. The range provided is 100 kilometres (62 miles) under practical conditions. The rated power output is 11 kW (15 hp), with a peak output of 35 kW (47 hp).
This enables the C evolution to achieve a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph, electronically limited) and gives it better acceleration than some maxi scooters powered by engines with displacements of 600 cc or more. When plugged in to a standard 220V domestic socket with a 12A charge current, recharging fully from empty takes around 4 hours (with 220V / 16A = 3 h).
Intelligent recuperation and four ride modes ensure riding fun as well as efficiency. BMW Recuperation takes place automatically both when coasting with the throttle closed and when braking. As on all vehicles from BMW Motorrad, the C evolution comes equipped with safety-boosting ABS, combined with disc brakes as standard. The torque Control Assist (TCA) for superior traction control is also standard equipment.
