► 2014 BMW C evolution
With 11 kW continuous output (homologation according to ECE R85 to
determine motor outputs) and 35 kW peak output, the "C evolution" has a
powerful motor and provides a high level of riding fun. The top speed is
electronically limited to 120 km/h. The scooter supremely handles motorway
riding and overtaking - even with a passenger. It is also capable of
effortless hill starts on steep slopes with a pillion passenger. In terms
of acceleration from 0 to 60 km/h, it comfortably holds its own against
current maxi scooters a capacity of 600 cc or more.
Compared to conventional combustion engines, the electric drive of the
"C evolution" also offers significant advantages at low speeds in
particular. Thanks to elaborate power electronics settings, the alternator
offers the rider an instant, spontaneous response. There are no delays in
torque build-up at all as are typical in combustion engines due to the
clutch engaging and disengaging.
At 8 kWh, the storage capacity of the battery is extremely generous and
ensures a range of up to 100 kilometres. This means that realistic
zero-emissions riding in the big city and in urban environments is no
problem at all. As in other areas, BMW Motorrad has been able to draw on
synergy effects with BMW automobiles here. For example, the "C evolution"
uses the same lithium-ion storage modules as are installed in the BMW i3.
Here, developers paid particular attention to the quality and service life
of the storage modules so as to ensure that the range is preserved even
after many years of service life and in very cold weather.
One of the main technological challenges was optimum cooling of the
high-voltage battery. On the one hand it was necessary to avoid excessively
low temperatures due to the fact that the interior resistance of the cells
is heavily increased as a result, thereby reducing power. On the other
hand, the temperatures must not be too high since this would impair the
lifetime of the cells.
While in electrically powered cars a cooling agent is normally used to cool
the battery, air cooling is used in the "C evolution" in order to save
space and weight. The heat of the high-voltage battery is dissipated by
means of an aerodynamically optimised cooling air shaft at the centre of
the battery casing through which there is a constant flow of air. To ensure
optimum heat dissipation, the battery base has longitudinally arranged
However, the battery casing in die-cast aluminium not only holds the cells
with their special architecture but also the entire electronics unit for
monitoring the cells. It also acts as a load-bearing chassis element.
The power electronics for the electric drive is installed behind the
battery casing. This not only takes care of controlling the alternator
within a range of 100 to 150 volts but also responds to rider commands, for
example by detecting the position of the throttle grip. The system also
processes information from the brake system and decides whether energy
should be recuperated and how much recuperation torque is to be applied to
the rear wheel if required.
