BMW Motorrad presents new electric scooter
With the CE 02, BMW Motorrad now offers a new electric two-wheeler for urban areas. It thus continues with its electrification strategy for the urban mobility market.
The new e-scooter has evolved from the Concept CE 02 presented in 2021 and comes in two versions: With a maximum power of 11 kW (nominal power 6 kW) and 95 kph top speed, and in a version limited to 4 kW (nominal power: 3.2 kW) and a top speed of 45 kph. In Germany, the bike will cost 7,500 euros (4 kW) and 8,500 euros (11 kW). In the US, the 4 kW variant is available from 7,599 dollars and the the 11 kW version from 8,474 dollars.
In Europe, the smaller version can be driven with an AM driver’s licence or a scooter licence, which can already be obtained at 15.
The BMW CE 02 has an external charger and a charging power of 0.9 kW, meaning it can be plugged into a household socket. The Highline variant is available with 1.5 kW fast-charging capabilities.
BMW emphasises that it is not an e-scooter nor an e-motorcycle, referring to the two-wheeler as “eParkourer”. The primary colour is black, while the Highline version is available with an “extroverted and colourful appearance.”
While the BMW CE 04 e-scooter with up to 31 kW is mass-produced at the Motorradwerk Berlin, BMW asked the TVS Motor Company in India to manufacture the CE 02, the Berliner Zeitung reports.
