Lately, cities like London and Paris are abuzz with electric scooters that have joined the traffic of a handful of other major urban centers around the world.
Now BMW has just unveiled three scooters that will be hitting the market in September 2019. The German brand has teamed up with Micro (inventor of the Micro Scooter) to fuse engineering with design, resulting in a trio of scooter models.
The flagship model is the 799 EUR (approx. $895 USD) road-ready BMW E-Scooter, which promises a 20 km/h (12 mph) top speed, weighs in at 9 kilograms (20 lbs), includes two separate braking systems, plus embedded front and rear lights for safety. The scooter takes only two hours to fully charge its lithium-ion battery, while the body is finished in a matte black design.
The E-Scooter is accompanied by two motorless, kick-powered models, the 200 EUR (approx. $224 USD) City Scooter, and a children's model the 120 EUR (approx. $134 USD) Kids Scooter. The City edition folds neatly into a compact form for easy storage and convenience in the city, while the Kids version features training wheels for tykes from the age of three to 12.
All BMW scooters are available for purchase at selected BMW dealers. The BMW E-Scooter will be available starting from September 2019.
