BMW 2019 C Evolution City Scooter – Features and Price
At first glance, the evolved shape of C is a typical representative of BMW Motorrad. The LED lights and large TFT display reflect BMW’s technological leadership, while the eye-catching split fairing shares its DNA with other members of the BMW Motorrad family. The new, fascinating colors, “Eonic Silver Metallic” (Eonic Silver Metallic) and “Electric Green,” make a statement here. The graphics on the side cover of the scooter add to the modern appearance of the electric scooter. High-quality fit, surface treatment, and attention to detail complete the design elements of BMW 2019 C Evolution City Scooter.
In contrast to traditional internal combustion engines, C evolution’s electric engine provides peak torque from a standstill, rather than gradually increasing to peak torque. The peak output of the machine is 48 hp (35 kW) and the torque at the output shaft is 53 lb-ft (72 Nm), which can bring immediate riding pleasure. The maximum speed is electronically limited to 80mph to ensure optimized power consumption and range. Accelerate at a rate of 0 – 30 mph in 2.8 seconds. When the light turns green, you will quickly leave the road.
The energy storage device in the evolution of BMW C includes three modules, each with twelve lithium-ion battery cells. Thanks to the latest generation of 94 Ah instead of 60 Ah battery modules, the C evolution range is up to 99 miles (per WMTC). The battery box is entirely waterproof, made of die-cast aluminum, and is equipped with the entire electronic control and charging system. It is not only a support chassis component but also an anti-collision protector for lithium-ion battery modules.
Full Charge for Riding Pleasure
BMW i is the technical inspiration behind the C Evolution battery. The high-quality modules are the same as those used in the BMW i3 and are produced at the same factory in Dingolfing. I3 and i8 also use some electronic control systems. It covers voltage, current, and temperature, and ensures safe activation and deactivation of high energy. The short charging time is especially practical in daily use. Like the new “silent charging” mode, this mode can make charging time slightly longer, but much quieter.
Powered by Innovation
In the integrated charging device, whether it is in a standard household power outlet or at a charging station, the integrated charging device can be used to charge the battery in the evolution of BMW C. The new charging plug socket on the vehicle is compatible with Type 1 car plugs. The standard charger cable is suitable for household sockets. Besides, you can also use the Mode 3 charger cable to be able to use public charging stations or wall boxes. It gives access to 16 A current, which allows faster charging.
BMW 2019 C Evolution City Scooter has established technical standards and is characterized by its versatility. C Evolution has four different riding modes to ensure that the variable riding fully meets the rider’s wishes. Innovative features such as the effective reverse assist system and torque control assist system TCA; are very clear. With the development of C, you are the pioneer of the new movement-without compromise in terms of riding performance and environmental compatibility.
