With the BMW C evolution, you can experience the urban mobility of tomorrow today – without having to make any compromises. On the contrary: this electro maxi scooter combines sustainability, dynamics and agility in a single design which draws all the looks. It not only allows you to leave the exhaust gases and noise behind, but also every other vehicle in urban traffic with ease. The powerful, fully-electric drive quickly brings you to your destination and in so doing ensures sheer riding pleasure. And thanks to a range of up to 160 kilometres, your joy will last all day long. Added to this are four riding modes and intelligent energy recuperation when braking and accelerating. Maximised riding performance, environmental compatibility, innovative technologies – the C evolution is uncompromising riding pleasure.
The styling of the C evolution is futuristic yet also instantly recognisable as being typical of BMW Motorrad. LED daytime riding light, LED lights and the large TFT colour display highlight the technological advancement. Meanwhile the striking split face is a clear reflection of the maxi scooter's BMW Motorrad genes. The new, attractive Ionic Silver metallic colour in combination with the accentualising colour Electric Green makes an unequivocal statement. The new visuals of the side cladding gives the electro maxi scooter a more modern appearance. The high-quality finishing and first-class details like the colourful seat seams or the tinted windshield round off the design nicely.
Unlike traditional combustion engines, the electric drive in the C evolution offers a spontaneous and very direct power transmission. There is no delay in the build up of torque. You have the full power at your disposal right from the word go.
With a peak output of 35 kW (48 bhp) and 72 Nm of torque at the "crankshaft" in theoretical terms, it actually produces a torque of almost 600 Nm at the rear wheel in practice. The top speed is electronically cut off at 120 km/h so as to optimise power consumption and therefore range, too. The acceleration figure from 0 to 50 km/h is barely 2.8 seconds - so nobody gets a better head start than you when the lights turn green.
The energy storage device in the BMW C evolution consists of three modules, each of which has twelve lithium-ion battery cells. Thanks to the battery modules of the latest generation with 94 Ah as opposed to 60 Ah, the range of the C evolution is now up to 160 kilometres (per WMTC).
Entirely waterproof, the battery casing is made of die-cast aluminium and also houses the entire electronic control and charging system. It is both a supporting chassis part and a crash protector for the lithium-ion battery module.
BMW i was the technological inspiration behind the C evolutionbattery. The high-quality modules are identical to those used in the BMW i3 and are produced at the same plant in Dingolfing. Parts of the electronic control system were also adopted from the i3 and i8. This covers voltage, current and temperature and ensures that the high voltage is securely activated and deactivated.
The battery in the BMW C evolution is charged using the integrated charging device - either at a regular household power socket or at a charging station. The charging plug socket on the vehicle is compatible with the car plug type 1. The standard charger cable has the appropriate national plug to fit household mains sockets. Alternatively it is possible to use a Mode 3 charger cable so as to be able to use public charging stations or wallboxes. This provides access to 16 A current for faster charging.
The short charging times are especially practical in everyday use. As is the new Silent Charge mode, which makes charging slightly longer but much quieter.
