2014 BMW-i C Evolution Electric Scooter Prototype

The C Evolution features a hybrid composite structure upon which it fits an electric motor producing a continuous output of 11kW (15hp) and a peak output of 35kW (47hp) allowing for an electronically limited top speed of 120km/h (75mph).  
According to BMW, in terms of acceleration from 0 to 60 km/h (37mph), the C Evolution “comfortably holds its own against current maxi scooters a capacity of 600 cc or more”. 
The C Evolution is powered via a drivetrain swing arm. The alternator is positioned behind the battery casing and integrated in the swing arm. 
The 8kWh battery provides a range of up to 100 kilometers (62 miles) and can be recharged through an integrated charging device via a regular household socket or a charging station in less than three hours. 
Moreover, the C Evolution features a ‘smart’ recuperation system that regains energy during coasting or braking, and which BMW says can extend the range of the two-wheeler by 10 to 20 per cent, depending on riding style.
The Bavarian company believes that it can have the production model ready for sale by 2014.
