The e-scooter has what it takes to become a bestseller. Accompanied by a high sington, the 35 kilowatt (48 hp) electric motor really pushes and propels the vehicle and helmsman to 50 km / h in less than three seconds.

BMW C evolution in the driving report

The problem is the price

Hardly any other vehicle with an engine has driven so quietly. Nevertheless, the electrically powered BMW C evolution impresses with its great driving dynamics. However, this e-scooter will not be able to hit the streets in large quantities. Unfortunately!

R.Older from BMW, it’s not always a happy relationship. Just remember C1, which appeared too early. This single-seater scooter with a roof and a comprehensive safety concept failed. The current C 600 Sport and C 650 GT are still having a hard time in the market. The sales figures are not skyrocketing. The BMW C evolution fits into the series. BMW does not initially plan to build more than ten units per day. The e-scooter would definitely have what it takes to become a bestseller.

BMW C evolution in the driving report
The problem is the price

BMW C evolution with a range of up to 100 km

Four drive programs can be conveniently selected on the BMW C evolution at the push of a button. They differ primarily in the degree of recuperation, i.e. energy recovery. This happens on the one hand by brakes, which use the motor more or less as a generator. And when the current is removed, after which the motor decelerates strongly or not at all. In the “Road” program, full acceleration and 50 percent recuperation are available via the throttle. "Dynamics" ensures a much stronger recuperation, "Eco-Pro" limits the acceleration, and in the "Sail" program the engine does not brake at all, but there is full acceleration.

The same lithium-ion batteries as in the small electric BMW i3 serve to store electricity in the BMW C evolution. With its eight kilowatt hours of capacity, the C evolution can travel up to 100 kilometers, according to BMW. Seems credible, we drove 65 kilometers and according to the display there were 45 percent charge in the cells. And that, although we also whizzed up a brisk mountain route and drove not exactly economical. The display shows how much electricity you suck in or produce when you take off the accelerator and brake. Also numerically. At the end of the test drive, we had recovered 0.8 kWh.

The problem is the price

Noise comfort and engine response are incomparable. As if by magic, the BMW C evolution pushes forward, glides through the street canyons with a feeling of weightlessness, then brakes more or less gently. Everything can be regulated with the throttle. And at the traffic lights it’s quiet, totally quiet. Only now do you realize how nonsensical an internal combustion engine that slaps idly is.

But there are also weaknesses: The battery is quite wide, so there is relatively little foot space. The bench could be better padded, surprisingly soon the buttocks hurt. The rear suspension could look smoother: it passes especially short heels on to the pilot almost unfiltered. Otherwise the BMW scooter is almost perfect. From the helmet compartment to the heated grips, from the short charging time of three hours, ideally, to the good rear-view mirrors, from ABS to traction control, the C evolution only offers good things. The BMW can even be driven with an A1 light motorcycle driving license. The problem is the price. Unfortunately, 15,000 euros make the number of items planned by the Munich-based company seem plausible. A pity.
