BMW C Evolution Police-Spec Electric Scooter Concept
BMW will present a new police-spec version of its C Evolution electric scooter at an upcoming police and state security trade show in Paris.
Debuting at the Milipol 2013 show Nov. 19-22, the police edition BMW C Evolution concept will illustrate the potential of electric scooters for police, rescue or escort activities. Like BMW’s other police-spec models, the police version C Evolution comes with police lighting and sirens and a number of optional accessories to suit different law enforcement needs.
Like the civilian model revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the police version’s liquid-cooled permanent magnet synchronous motor claims a continuous output of 15 hp peak output of 47 hp. BMW says the C Evolution can reach an electronically-limited top speed of 75 mph.
The chassis is built around a die-cast aluminum casing which houses the 8 kWh battery. BMW claims the battery will provide a range of 62 miles on a single charge, and can be recharged in four hours with a 220V socket and a 12 A current (and three hours with a 16 A current).
In addition to the C Evolution, BMW will present police versions of the R1200RT, F800GT and F700GS at Milipol 2013.
