BMW to launch new X2City Electric Scooter – but it comes with a hefty price tag

Designed for the young, urban audience, the BMW X2City will be launched in Europe in just over a week.
The electric scooter is from BMW Motorrad and comes with cool features like a 408 Wh capacity lithium-ion battery and a USB port to charge your phone.
Much like the X2City’s older siblings, it also comes with a hefty price tag.
Billed as the perfect city companion, the BMW X2City has a small electric motor that lets the scooter fly through the city at speeds of up to 20 km/h. After the rider has accelerated the scooter to 6 km/h, he can further increase the speed with a pedal. In addition, they can choose settings from the handlebars to hit speeds from 8, 12, 16, 18 and 20 km/h.

The electric scooter draws its power from a 408 Wh capacity lithium-ion battery integrated into the footboard. 
The German company are stating you can hit distances between 20-30km and the battery can be fully recharged to an ordinary household plug in just 2.5 hours.
It can also be used while driving to power your smartphone and more, with a handy USB port.
The BMW X2City comes in grey, blue, red or black and sales start on February 4 through the specialist dealers.
The price in Germany starts at €2,399.
