The BMW E-Scooter was designed in cooperation with Micro (inventor of the Micro Scooter) and will be available in three models. The flagship E-Scooter has a range of twelve kilometers (7.5 miles), a top speed of 20 km/h (12 mph), and weighs 9 kilograms (20 lbs). It boasts two separate braking systems, embedded front and rear lights, and can fold easily, with the 150-watt motor and lithium-ion battery tucked away in the footplate and rear wheel. The scooter takes two hours to fully charge and has a polished, clean and minimalist look.

The E-Scooter is accompanied by two additional motorless models: the BMW City Scooter, 200 EUR (approx. US$224), and BMW Kids Scooter, 120 EUR (approx. US$134), to accommodate scooter riders of all ages and needs. The City edition can be easily folded and allows for better storage and comfort for an urban commuter, while the Kids edition is geared at youngsters up to age 12, is size adjustable, and features training wheels.

Think one of these scooters might be for you? The BMW E-Scooter will go on sale at 799 EUR (approx. US$895) beginning in September 2019.
