According to Solo Scooter in Spain, unnamed sources inside BMW are reporting that the Bavarian brand is working up a new electric scooter that could be debuted at an upcoming motorcycle show sometime in late 2010 and put in production in 2011. If these rumors are to be believed, the upcoming machine would use a lithium ion battery pack with enough juice to allow a range of about 155 miles or three hours of continuous use and a top speed of 75 miles per hour. There's no indication at this time whether the supposed electric scooter from BMW would ape the design from the commercially-unsuccessful C1, which featured an innovative, partially enclosed design.

The image above was rendered by the well-known Oberdan Bezzi and – while certainly a nice and thoroughly BMW-looking design – isn't necessarily representative of what an electric BMW scooter may look like.
