Most of the vehicle manufacturers are trying to keep it up with the latest technologies in the business and are constantly trying to develop new ways to make their products more efficient, comfortable and practical.

As the oil crisis is getting worse with every year that passes, the big manufacturers are looking for a viable replacement for the classic combustion engines and at the moment, the most promising technology is considered to be the one based on electric power.

BMW is aware of the potential that stays behind this type of technology and has already started to develop electric vehicles. After presenting the C evolution concept a while ago, the company is now ready with the production version and has officially announced that it will present its new model at the IAA Car Show in Frankfurt, 10 September 2013.

The new electric scooter will be based on the same technology used by the innovative BMW i3, so as far as performances are concerned we’ll certainly be pleasantly surprised.

The new scooter will be built on the same platform as the company’s C-series, so technically, it will be an electric maxi scooter that will provide plenty of space for the rider as well as a generous storage volume.
