The BMW Group have unveiled its new electric bike concept DNYMANIC CARO and e-scooter concept CLEVER COMMUTE, in a bid to further discuss its approach to urban mobility.
The DYMANIC CARGO is a three wheeled cargo bike concept with high agility, flexible usage options and is able to be used in a number of conditions. It features a loading platform with attachments for transporting loads and or children as well as leisure activities.
Jochen Karg, Head of Vehicle Concepts in the BMW Group’s New Technologies and China division, said: “Our goal was to develop a concept that retains the agility and driving feel of a normal bicycle while adding innovative, safe transport options.”
“The concept DYNAMIC CARGO is the first dynamic pick-up cargo bike that combines driving pleasure with flexible use and increased year-round stability.”
The key feature of the DYNAMIC CARGO is the front main frame, which is connected to the rear section via a pivot axle and tilts in corners. The rear section remains stable through all corners without tilting towards the road.
The e-scooter concept CLEVER COMMUTE is suitable for everyday use. It features good riding stability, a compact design, and also features an innovative ‘public transport mode”, making it easier to incorporate travel on public transport into longer journeys.
In public transport mode, the e-scooter footboard folds up at the sides and the rear wheel pivots into the resulting aperture from below. This mechanism shortens the wheelbase of the e-scooter substantially so that it can be carried easily. It can also be rolled along on both wheels.
Both concepts have been designed to offer a range of over 20 kilometres and will also feature a battery pack that can be removed and charged at home.
Although the BMW Group will not manufacture the Concept DYNAMIC CARGO or the CLEVER COMMUTE e-scooter, the group is already in discussions with potential licensees for both.
