A new set of spy photos has surfaced as road testing of the production BMW CE 04 continues in Europe ahead of its introduction later this year. Wilco Blok (Instagram: @wilcoblok), a skilled spy photographer and Electric Vehicle Web supporter, has captured a prototype in a dual-tone color.
Design of BMW CE 04:
BMW CE 04 in grey with orange body stripe, visor, and seat, according to new spy photos. The final version appears to have a lower footboard than the prototype, which could improve rider comfort, especially for tall people. The rear fender is much longer and more traditional, providing more water protection. The rear fender is substantially longer and more traditional, which should provide better splash protection. The final model, unlike the design, incorporates turn indicators and mirrors to meet with safety rules.
According to spy photos and patent images, the final version of the BMW CE 04 will be very similar to the concept. When the BMW CE 04 concept was introduced in November of last year, BMW Group described it as a “near-series” model. It is an evolution of the BMW Motor rad Concept Link, according to the firm.
The production BMW CE 04 has a longer rear fender with a license plate bracket and additional fender support on the single-sided swingarm. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the curvature of the lower body on the sides and in the back is a little different as well. There is no hump to separate the area for the rider and the pillion in the unusually built “floating” seat.
Specifications of BMW CE 04:
The production BMW CE 04’s specifications have yet to be revealed. However, it should, like the prototype, have a flat battery in the underbody that allows for ample of storage below the seat and a low Centre of gravity for a more dynamic riding experience. LED lights and a huge digital instrument cluster are expected to be among the new BMW electric scooter’s primary features.
“The urban target group primarily rides modest distances of approx. 12 km per day,” BMW Group stated while announcing the concept. As a result, it’s unlikely that the commercial model will include a swappable battery pack or an extended range of travel.
Instrument Cluster in BMW CE 04:
The final CE 04’s fully digital instrument cluster would be different from the concept model’s 10.25-inch unit. The production screen is not as broad as the main screen, but it is noticeably taller. Although the concept’s display was intriguing, the final product’s display, with its standard size and aspect ratio, appears to be practical for easy-to-access information in everyday outdoor circumstances.
Release Date of BMW CE 04:
The production-spec BMW CE 04 is expected to launch in July 2021, according to a report from PNP (via g80.bimmerpost.com) on June 21, 2021. Oliver Zipes, Chairman of BoM, BMW Group, was interviewed by the German journal while standing next to an unannounced model. It’s a new BMW Motor rad model for urban e-mobility, according to Zipes, and it’ll debut in early July.
The aforementioned news comes less than a month after Zipes stated that the production BMW CE 04 electric scooter (BMW Motor rad Definition CE 04) would make its world premiere this summer (June – August 2021). He made the following remarks at the company’s 101st Annual General Meeting:
“BMW Motor rad has been electric for quite some time. Our CE 04, which is to my right, is the perfect fit for the city and it will celebrate its world premiere in the summer. And at the IAA Mobility, we will show you much more in this regard.”
