BMW announced that it will produce the BMW CE 04, a scooter futuristic and completely electric that could be a very good means of urban transport.
The CE 04 is “the symbol of a new era”, as BMW writes in the official statement. When it comes to specs, it appears to be a fairly acceptable vehicle, accelerating from 0 to 50 km / h (31 mph) in just 2.6 seconds. The battery, meanwhile, is lithium with a capacity of 60 Ah, enough to travel 130 kilometers (80 miles) on a single charge.
An important detail in electric vehicles is the charging time. According to BMW, the CE 04’s battery can be fully recharged from being empty in just over four hours, but separately they will sell a faster charger that could complete the process in 1 hour and 40 minutes; On the other hand, if the charge begins with the battery at 20 percent, the recharge will be completed in just 45 minutes.
The CE 04 also includes several modes, appropriate for different climates and conditions that will be more efficient with the use of the same battery.
Equally important in a vehicle is the issue of safety, and while the scooters They are not the safest in the world, BMW implemented some of its technologies that allow the CE 04 to have greater stability, especially when accelerating and decelerating, through an ABS braking system.
And if the above was not enough, the CE 04 comes with a 10-inch TFT screen that includes maps for navigation and various connectivity options, including a USB-C port to recharge a phone.
The BMW CE 04 has a very striking and sober design, despite the futuristic nature of some of its features. Of course, it is not a cheap vehicle: its starting price will be $ 12,000 when it goes on sale during the first quarter of 2022.
