BMW E-Scooter Offers 7.5-Mile Range, Goes 12 MPH For $895

Electric scooters and e-bikes are booming segments when it comes to personal mobility and automakers aren’t willing to let an opportunity like this slip away.

Add to that the legislation that has started to become favorable in some countries and it’s easy to see why many carmakers have either started to build their own e-scooters and e-bikes, or buy companies that make them in order to get a foothold in this business.

As a known maker of bicycles and, more recently, electric bicycles, BMW makes no exception. Through its BMW Lifestyle division, the Bavarian company has announced it will launch the BMW E-Scooter from September 2019.

Developed in collaboration with Micro, the inventor of the Micro Scooter, the E-Scooter offers a range of 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) and is capable of traveling at speeds of up to 20 km/h (12 mph). The electric scooter is motivated by a rear wheel-mounted 150-watt motor fed by a lithium-ion battery placed into the footplate.

Recharging the battery to full capacity takes two hours. Stopping power is ensured by two separate braking systems. Despite packing all this tech, the BMW E-Scooter tips the scales at just 9 kg (19.8 lbs) and features a space-saving design that allows it to be folded up very easily.

Featuring a matte-black color design and embedded front and rear lights, the E-Scooter will be offered with a suggested retail price of €799 (approximately $895) in Germany.

Besides the E-Scooter, BMW Lifestyle presents the City Scooter and the Kids Scooter. Also created in cooperation with Micro, these are regular scooters with no electric propulsion. The City Scooter costs €200 ($225) and comes with a triple-secured folding and locking mechanism, large wheels, and low footplate with an integrated kickstand.

Available for €120 ($135), the size-shifting Kids Scooter is available in two color combinations and is designed for children between 3 and 12 years old. The seat can be simply taken off and the height of the handlebars adjusted as the rider gets taller.

All BMW scooters can be purchased at selected BMW dealers.
