The concept of the futuristic e-scooter with latest technologies was showcased in 2017. The CE 04 electric scooter has now taken a tangible form with a forward-looking design and innovative technologies.
BMW CE 04 offers a powerful motor with ample battery cell capacity of 60.6 Ah (8.9 kWh) with the range of 130 km. It churns maximum output of 31 kW (42 hp) of power. The magnet electric motor is mounted in the frame between the battery and the rear wheel. Under traffic light start conditions, it accelerates from 0 to 50 km/h in just 2.6 seconds and offers the maximum speed of 120 km/h.
