C-Evolution: Plug-In BMW


    BMW continues to embrace an electric future with the reveal of it’s new Cevolution scooter. The C evolution Long Range models is said to be capable of distances up to 160 km and a top speed of 129kmh – although those two items likely do not happen at the same time as a gentle wrist would be required to eke out the maximum distance. Already available in much of Europe and in China, the C evolution is now also set for a debut in the USA. There is no word as to whether the C evolution will be giving the Canadian market a jolt.
