MUNICH, Germany — The BMW Group announced that it will be rolling out it pioneering E-Scooter in autumn 2019. The German automaker joins its automotive counterparts Ford and GM whom both expanded their lines by entering into the E-scooters market.
Ford recently purchased electric scooter company Spin for a reported $200 million in overall investments.
GM announced it will begin selling its electric bicycles named ARĪV in Europe in the second quarter.
In Belgium and the Netherlands the compact e-bike would cost 2,800 euros ($3,165), while the folding one would cost 3,400 euros. In Germany, the prices would be 2,750 euros and 3,350 euros, respectively.
BMW is building on its successful cooperation with Micro with another compelling demonstration of innovative technology and high-quality design at work.
The new BMW E-Scooter will get its rider to their destination even more quickly, thanks to its range of twelve kilometres (7.5 miles) and 20 km/h (12 mph) top speed.
It features two separate braking systems and embedded front and rear lights provide the requisite safety on the road. The scooter is lightweight and can be folded up very easily.
The 150-watt motor and lithium-ion battery slip away almost out of sight into the footplate and rear wheel, making the new E-Scooter every inch the practical everyday companion.
It takes just two hours to fully charge the E-Scooter’s battery so it’s ready to go again. Micro’s matt-black colour design is the ideal match for the classical blue of the BMW propeller logo.
