BMW has chosen this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show to showcase their new Concept e scooter – which is a zeroemission cycle to help you get around without searing our ozone layer or your conscience

Building on almost 90 years of experience in the field of motorized two-wheel vehicles, BMW Motorrad is drawing on the conceptual benefits of single-track vehicles to develop innovative solutions, adding a new dimension to the area of urban commuting.
Thinking on a serious note increasing limitations in traffic space, growing traffic density as well as both ecological and economical challenges gives rise to new demands in the area of private transport in the major city areas in particular.

At the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA), BMW presented its design concept in this area for the first time: "BMW Concept e". The design study BMW Concept e embodies the vision of an electrically powered scooter made by BMW Motorrad. An e-scooter with sustainable technological solutions and the aesthetic design of the Concept e provides a response to these changing urban mobility needs.
BMW Motorrad designers have developed the style and shaping of the e-scooter of the future - electric, digital, dynamic.

The shaping and precision achieved reflect the core values of BMW Motorrad. At the same time, the purist, clear design, colouring and choice of materials instantly suggest a clean, efficient yet agile single-track vehicle which allows one to move effortlessly through city traffic.
The Concept e, the main aim was to translate the special character of electric drive technology to the vehicle's outward appearance. The Concept e is the conceptual blueprint of a scooter able to set new standards with innovative premium electrical drive and provide a sound alternative form of mobility suitable for everyday use in the dense traffic of the constantly expanding conurbation areas and cities of the world today.
The BMW Concept e is clearly identifiable as a member of the BMW Motorrad family. As in other BMW motorcycles, the so-called split face runs from the upper trim section to above the front wheel cover, giving the Concept e an unmistakable, dynamic front view.The successful BMW Motorrad design style is also reflected in the styling of the twin-tipped spoiler in the floating panel of the front trim, a boomerang-shaped, aerodynamically formed floating panel.
The short, sporty rear highlights the active riding character of the electrically powered scooter, giving it a visual sense of dynamic performance which is underscored by the
low cut windshield.
The battery is charged at regular household power sockets as found in Europe, the USA, Canada and Japan, There is no need for a special charging station. When the battery is completely flat, the charging period is less than three hours. Practical experience with concept vehicles has already shown that the battery rarely runs out completely, so charging times are generally shorter.
