BMW Trials C Evolution E-Scooter During London Olympics
Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW), the world’s biggest maker of luxury cars, will let selected London Olympics visitors drive prototype electric scooters during the games as it accelerates expansion of its two-wheeler lineup.
The C Evolution model is being introduced in the U.K. capital today at the start of a Europewide promotional tour planned for the rechargeable scooters that BMW is targeting for sale in two years, the Munich-based manufacturer said.
“We plan to bring the scooter in a very similar form to market in 2014,” Rudolf-Andreas Probst, a spokesman for BMW’s motorcycle division, said in an e-mail. “Beforehand, we need to clarify some technical and marketing aspects.”
