BMW‘s all-new CE 04 urban electric scooter is officially being produced. Teased last year at BMW’s #NEXTGen 2020 event, the futuristic scooter concept was presented as a sleek urban commuter for short-journey usage.

Now that the final design is out, new details make this out to be a promising electric two-wheeler. The CE 04 boasts 31 kW (42 hp) of power, a 0 – 50 km/h time of 2.6 seconds, a range of roughly 130 kilometers, and a charge time of 4 hours and 20 minutes (reduced to 1 hour and 40 minutes when using a quick charger). Keeping the scooter stable is one-piece tubular steel main frame construction, ASC (Automatic Stability Control), DTC (Dynamic Traction Control), and ride settings for eco, rain, and dry road. There’s also ABS.

Outside of the performance specs, the CE 04 scooter is also ready for the modern urban world with a large 10.25-inch TFT color screen, powerful LED lighting, ample compartments for not only your helmet but for things like small bags and cases, and a dedicated ventilated mobile phone charging compartment with a USB-C port.

While this scooter does look pretty cool, the $12,000 USD price tag might be a bit too much for your average city commuter.
