A new trend is coming to the world of electric mobility this year: e-scooters. This is the smart form of everyday transport – and the reason why BMW Lifestyle will be expanding its compact city scooter range for young and old from September 2019. The launch of the pioneering BMW E-Scooter sees the BMW Group building on its successful cooperation with Micro (inventor of the Micro Scooter) with another demonstration of high-quality design at work.
The new BMW E-Scooter will get its rider to their destination even more quickly, thanks to its range of twelve kilometres (7.5 miles) and 20 km/h (12 mph) top speed. Two separate braking systems and embedded front and rear lights provide the requisite safety on the road. And yet this lightweight scooter (it weighs just nine kilograms) still boasts the space-saving design of a city scooter and can be folded up very easily.
The 150-watt motor and lithium-ion battery slip away almost out of sight into the footplate and rear wheel, making the new E-Scooter every inch the practical everyday companion. It takes just two hours to fully charge the E-Scooter’s battery so it’s ready to go again. Micro’s matt-black colour design is the ideal match for the classical blue of the BMW propeller logo.
Created as part of the first collaboration between the BMW Group and Micro, the adjustable BMW City Scooter allows the rider to take it with them everywhere thanks to its triple-secured folding and locking mechanism. The low footplate with integrated kickstand and the large wheels offer excellent comfort on the commute to work. And with destination reached, the City Scooter can be parked away neatly in space-saving style.
The BMW E-Scooter will be available starting from September 2019.
