Review: BMW C Evolution Electric Scooter
As the first electric model from a major motorcycle manufacturer, BMW’s C evolution scooter is a significant machine. But it faces the considerable challenge of igniting the market for battery-powered biking.
It is five years since the Isle of Man’s inaugural TT Zero race for electric bikes, which triggered a flurry of interest and was followed by US firm Zero launching a range of electric roadsters. But Zero pulled out of the UK last year after selling only a handful of bikes.
The C evolution has the advantage of having been developed alongside the firm’s recently released i3 electric car. Its bodywork hides a large aluminium box that contains three of the eight lithium-ion battery cells that power the i3.
