BMW has revealed the complete specifications of its new C Evolution scooter. The new scooter is fully electric and features selectable regenerative braking, Torque Control Assistant (to limit power under acceleration if wheel slip is detected), a large TFT display and daytime LED running lights.
Power comes from a drivetrain swing arm with liquid-cooled permanent magnet synchronous motor via a toothed belt and ring gearing. The motor delivers 11 kW (15 hp), with a peak output of 35 kW (47 hp) which is more than enough to propel the scooter to a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph, electronically limited).
The motor is linked to an 8 kWh capacity air-cooled lithium-ion high-voltage battery that delivers enough power to give you a riding range of up to 100 kilometres (62 miles). The battery can be fuly charged charged in around 4 hours using any standard 220V domestic socket with a 12A charge current.
Price and availability have not yet been announced.
