BMW CE 04 electric scooter zips in, official price in March

By CARSIFU | 10 January 2023

KUALA LUMPUR: BMW Motorrad Malaysia today previewed the new BMW CE 04 electric scooter, electrifying its two-wheel range here for the first time. The two-wheeler was introduced alongside the facelifted 3 Series, the updated MINI Electric and the BMW K 1600 B motorcycle.

The CE 04 official pricing would be announced in March, with tentative pricing in the RM60,000 range. The scooter does not require a Class B licence to use.

A culmination of 50 years of electromobility and almost 30 years of urban mobility, the CE 04 features an innovative electric drive that promises an abundance of power and range.

A low placement of the energy storage unit enhances handling and ensures an overall smooth and pleasant ride.

LED lighting units have been implemented for the adaptive headlamp in both high beam and low beam, the rear light, as well as the turn indicators.

The liquid cooled electric motor is mounted in the lower frame between the battery and the rear wheel, contributing to the low centre of gravity.

The CE 04’s motor generates a maximum output of 31 kW (42PS) and 62Nm of torque, allowing for stop-and-go acceleration from 0 to 50kph in just 2.6 seconds. Top speed is 120 kph.

A 60.6 Ah (8.9 kWh) lithium-ion battery provides a maximum range of 130km. The battery is charged using the integrated charging device, which can be done at any regular household power socket, wallbox or public charging station.

When completely flat, fully charging the battery to maximum capacity takes 4 hours and 20 minutes, assuming the standard output of 2.3 kW.

With quick charging, assuming an output of up to 6.9 kW, this can be reduced to 1 hour and 40 minutes.

The CE 04 features four riding modes: “ECO”, “Rain” and “Road”, as well as the “Dynamic” riding mode that is available as an ex works option. It is also equipped with the latest generation of BMW Motorrad Integral ABS Pro.

Additionally, the CE 04 comes fitted with a 10.25-inch TFT colour display with Integrated Map Navigation, as well as extensive connectivity powered by the BMW Motorrad Connected App.

With the app, riders will have access to arrow navigation, as well as vehicle status and statistics. Other than that, the screen makes it possible to display a navigation
map in the instrument cluster, with no additional display needed, and can be operated via the multi-controller.

For added convenience, USB port, storage compartment with USB chargers, 12V socket, lighted helmet storage compartment, lighted flexcase, keyless ride functionality and reversing aid are included as standard.
