Series production of BMW’s battery-electric BMW C evolution maxi-scooter has now begun at the company’s Berlin plant. The electric scooter — which is BMW’s first to be mass produced — began development back in 2011, as the BMW E-Scooter concept.
The storage modules used in the BMW C Evolution are, interestingly, the same as those used in the i3 — as such, these will be supplied by BMW’s plant in Dingolfing.
Speaking about the beginning of series production, Plant Manager Dr Marc Sielemann stated: “We are very proud to herald the launch of electric vehicles in the two-wheeler segment, the BMW Group here in Berlin. We anchor the topic of electric mobility production in Berlin BMW plant. In addition, the BMW C evolution fits perfectly into the activities of the showcase region for electric mobility Berlin-Brandenburg.”
