BMW C evolution
Designed for daily commuter traffic, BMW's electric scooter concept can go approximately 60 miles before needing a charge at a household power socket or public charging station. The company says the scooter, displayed at the Paris auto show in October, was a "near-production prototype." Its lithium-ion battery can power the engine to get 47 horsepower and go up to 75 mph. Coasting and braking recharge the battery.
