BMW Motorrad has shown a glimpse of its electric scooter, the CE 04, in India. The BMW CE 04 will be powered through a permanent magnet motor which produces 42bhp of peak power. The motor will come coupled with an 8.9kWh lithium-ion battery, which will be located inside the floorboard. According to BMW, the German EV will travel 130 kilometres on a single charge. the company also says that a 2.3kW charger can charge the battery from 0 to 100% in 4 hours and 20 minutes. However, by using a 6.9kW fast charger, this time can be reduced to 1 hour and 40 minutes. 

In terms of design, the e-scooter has a lean tail section with a bench-like seat, wide side panels, and a compact front apron. The CE 04 e-scooter boasts storage spaces built into the sides and front. Additionally, there is a Type-C USB charging connector in a ventilated mobile charging compartment.

The BMW CE 04 will have 15-inch wheels with 120-section and 160-section tyres on the front and back, respectively. at the front, there are two 265mm disc brakes and at the back, braking duties are handled by a single disc.
