BMW C Evolution Electric Scooter Comes to US

Available in Europe for three years now, the BMW C Evolution electric scooter is about to make its US debut. Using the same 94-Ah batteries as the BMW i3 city car, the scooter is rated at 48 horsepower and 53 pound feet of torque, with a top speed of 80 mph. The C Evo weighs just over 600 pounds and costs $13,750. Only the long-range version will be available in the US.

The C Evolution*features an inverted fork, adjustable rear shock absorber, dual disc brakes in front and a single disc at the rear. Anti-lock braking is standard. Accessories include heated grips, comfort seat, and an alarm system.

BMW is rolling out the C Evolution initially as part of a*U.S. pilot program and, the scooter will only be available in California at the time of launch. As interest in the C evolution builds, BMW Motorrad USA will expand this product offering to BMW Motorrad retailers in other states. As the world’s first electrically powered premium large scooter, the C evolution presents BMW Motorrad’s first step toward alternative drivetrains, and reinforces the BMW Group’s commitment to sustainability.
