BMW unveils a new electric ‘C evolution’ scooter with up to 100 miles range

https://electrek.co/2016/09/13/bmw-unveils-a-new-electric-c-evolution-scooter-with-up-to-100-miles-range/

Lots of pics in the linked gallery. The article highlights:

Innovative electric drive via drivetrain swing arm with liquid-cooled e‑motor, tooth belt and planetary gear.
Significantly increased range due to enlarged battery cell capacity of 94 Ah (previously 60 Ah).
Long Range version: 19 kW (26 hp) continuous output and 35 kW (48 hp) peak output. Top speed 129 km/h, range approx. 160 km.
A1 driving licence version (Europe only): 11 kW (15 hp) continuous output and 35 kW (48 hp) peak output. Top speed 120 km/h, range approx. 100 km.
Intelligent recuperation in coasting mode and when braking.
Standard charge cable with smaller diameter.
Short charging times possible.
Synergy effects with BMW automobiles and electrical safety according to car standards.
Hybrid chassis with agile handling due to low centre of gravity.
Powerful braking system with ABS.
Extensive range of standard features including multifunctional TFT instrument cluster, LED daytime running light, LED turn indicators, several riding modes, reverse assist and Torque Control Assist (TCA).
New paint finishes Ionic Silver metallic / Electric Green.
High-end details such as tinted windshield and colour seat seams.
It’s not cheap. BMW didn’t release pricing for the latest generation, but as a reference, the current C evolution is priced at around €16,000.

Hybrid chassis with agile handling due to low centre of gravity.

Just that that gravity was increased by another 10kg, so this bomber now weighs in at a very hefty 275kg / 606lb ...

My rides:
2017 Zero S ZF6.5 11kW, erider Thunder 5kW
