BMW C1-E (2009)

BMW resurrects the C1 scooter with a roof (produced from 1999-2003) but removes the single-cylinder engine in favor of electric motors to create the C1-E. This concept, which is not scheduled to go into production, was created as part of the European Safer Urban Motorcycling (eSUM) project. This plug-in electric vehicle provides easy urban transportation without emissions and without the need to wear a helmet.

BMW C1-E appeared in the Spring 2010 BMW Motorcycle Magazine.
