BMW Motorrad is likewise responding to the challenges facing future urban mobility by putting forward innovative vehicle concepts. A prototype – also incorporating the aspect of electromobility – is presented at the 2012 Paris Motor Show 2012. In the BMW C evolution, an electric drive produces riding performance figures at the level of a maxi scooter with a conventional combustion engine. With a continuous output of 11 kW and a peak output of 35 kW, the liquid-cooled electric motor provides the perfect conditions for supreme riding pleasure in this vehicle segment. What is more, the compact battery allows a range of over 100 kilometres and can be recharged either at a household power socket or at a public charging station. This means that although primarily designed for use in daily commuter traffic, the BMW C evolution is well equipped to go beyond the boundaries of urban mobility.
In developing the drive technology for this near-production prototype,
BMW Motorrad benefits from the sound expertise of the BMW Group in the field of electromobility.
