BMW Electric Scooter India Launch Planned – Exp Price Rs 15 Lakh

BMW Motorrad has launched new vehicles to expand its motorcycle portfolio in India. The German brand aims to bring all its motorcycles and scooters to the Indian market. Speaking of BMW scooters, last year we got a BMW C 400 GT maxi scooter on our property. Despite the hefty price tag of Rs 10 crore, it has shown good sales.

BMW Group India President Vikram Pawah said the success of the BMW C 400 GT Maxi scooter in India made them believe there was strong demand for a premium product. BMW is now planning to launch its electric scooter in India. If all goes well, the CE 04 electric maxi scooter will be launched in India via the CBU route. This electric scooter is now sold in Europe where it is manufactured.

Other components include a front 35mm telescopic fork and rear offset mono-shock mounted on a single-sided swingarm, dual disc setup at the front and single disc setup at the rear with dual-channel ABS, belt drive, etc. It is capable of a maximum speed of 120 km/h and a distance of 130 km on a single charge and weighs 231 kg.

Yes! The BMW Electric Scooter is priced at USD 11,795 (Rs 9.50 lakh approx) for the base model and USD 14,180 (Rs 11.42 lakh approx) for the top-end variant (both ex-sh prices) in the global market. Following the Indian import trends, we will get the top spec variant and due to Indian import duties and taxes, we will see a hefty price tag of Rs. 15 to 18 million. In India, you can buy an imported Hayabusa for this price.

Heck, you can even buy the newly launched Tata Nexon EV Max at this price. At launch, BMW isn’t really positioning it for mainstream EV buyers. It is for rich Indians who want to make a name for themselves with a niche product. When you look at it from that perspective, it’s an absolute gem or an expensive collection in her garage. Because it looks like a concept car you can buy and it doesn’t get much better. For the mass market segment, BMW plans to launch entry-level electric cars in collaboration with TVS. But it will take time. In related news, the BMW G 310 RR was also recently mentioned.

BMW Electric Scooter CE 04

One look at the BMW CE 04 electric scooter will surprise you. It looks like something out of a cyberpunk movie probably set in the year 2200. The BMW CE 04 has a long wheelbase with low ground clearance, which could be a recipe for disaster on Indian roads with giants and vassals.

The windshield is made in a funky orange color, it has a purely aesthetic effect and cannot reflect the wind. The seats are very noticeable and uncomfortable at the same time.

The riding triangle looks very comfortable. While maintaining the maxi design, it is not a walk-through scooter, as the batteries are located in the central tunnel. In terms of batteries, it has an 8.9 kWh battery, which is more than double that of the Ola S1 Pro.

This battery is one of the 11 modules found in the BMW iX electric SUV. Instead of designing new components for electric cars, BMW reuses what it already has – components is the mantra. The engine produces 42bhp and 62Nm and is exactly 1/3 the engine section that powers the BMW X1 PHEV SUV. It also has a horizontal 10.25″ screen for the device, as we see in BMW cars.
