BMW CE02 Electric Scooter Gears Up for India Launch

On the bustling streets of Bengaluru, India’s tech capital, a futuristic vehicle has been spotted weaving through traffic. It’s the BMW CE02 electric scooter, a machine that defies traditional classifications with its sleek design and cutting-edge technology. The sighting of this ‘eParkourer,’ as BMW fondly terms it, signals that the German automaker is preparing for its grand entry into the Indian market, catering to a younger demographic seeking an agile and stylish urban mobility solution.


Local Production and Expected Pricing

Unlike its international counterparts, the CE02 will be produced locally in India, thanks to a partnership with TVS. The production will take place at TVS’s Hosur facility. This move is expected to result in a significant price reduction for the scooter. While internationally, the price starts at $7,599, the Indian market could see a much more competitive pricing strategy.


Features and Design

The CE02 is not just a pretty face. It comes equipped with a host of features designed for the modern, tech-savvy rider. From its LED headlight to the USB-C charging port and keyless ride, every aspect of this scooter has been designed with convenience in mind. It also includes basic connectivity functions, a 3.5-inch TFT display, and an electric reverse gear, all aimed to make navigating through urban landscapes easier.

Comfort, too, is a priority. The scooter’s wide handlebars, mid-mounted footpegs, and flat adjustable seat offer a comfortable riding experience. In terms of aesthetics, the CE02 is available in two color options: Cosmic Black and Cosmic Black 2 (with the Highline package). For those seeking to add a personal touch, BMW also offers a range of optional equipment and accessories.


Performance and Power

Underneath its stylish exterior, the BMW CE02 is a powerhouse. Its powertrain features an air-cooled synchronous motor delivering 15 hp and 55 Nm of torque. It has a claimed range of approximately 55 miles (88 km) — enough to cover most daily commuting needs. The battery supports both standard and quick charging methods, with the latter significantly reducing the charging time.

The upcoming launch of the BMW CE02 in India is a testament to the evolving demands of electric mobility in the country, particularly among the younger generation. With its unique blend of style, agility, and technology, the CE02 is poised to make a significant impact on the Indian electric vehicle market.
