The C1-E features an electric motor from Vectrix
The BMW C1-E is an electric powered enclosed scooter which is based on the design of the C1 scooter from the early 2000's.

The original C1 was a vehicle designed to offer a mix off comfort and convenience with the traffic congestion busting abilities of a scooter. Unfortunately the original C1 was only produced for a couple of years due to poor sales, after riders were legally required to wear a helmet in many countries - something BMW had not reckoned on during the vehicle's development.

The BMW C1-E takes the original concept of the C1 and gives it revised and more up-to-date bodywork and styling. The overall layout of the vehicle hasn't changed much except for the omission of a pillion seat just behind the cabin. The C1-E has an aluminium frame, front crumple zone, rollover bar, and a harness-style seat belt.

Aside from the visible changes, the 2009 C1-E has an all-new drivetrain which consists of a Vectrix-sourced electric motor fed by Lithium-Ion batteries.

The C1-E also features a range of active safety systems designed to reduce the risk to the rider. These include a tire-pressure monitoring system, traction control and anti-lock brakes.
