Frankfurt 2013: BMW C Evolution Electric Scooter

bmw_c-e_main

The Frankfurt auto show is usually the beginning of a model year’s auto show season, and this year is no exception with a host of 2014 models being shown for the first time. BMW is starting us off with a bit of 2 wheeled news this morning, having recently announced that the company’s C Evolution electric scooter will be officially available for sale after its September 10th showing at Frankfurt.

BMW’s been teasing us with the C evolution since the “sleek, pointy” concept version broke cover in 2011. More recently, the gas-powered versions of the C maxi-scoot have gotten rave reviews as fast, practical, sexy long-distance tourers and capable city-dwellers, as well.

The new BMW C Evolution uses the same “energy storage modules” that BMW’s i division is using in their recently announced i3 and i8 machines, so performance is expected to be solid, with final specs (power, range, load capacity, etc.) to be revealed on the 10th. Stay tuned!
