The BMW Motorrad Electromobility Hub

You move around the world’s cities and metropolitan regions exactly at the point where each project represents the first step towards the next new idea. And you are also always on the move. We are familiar with this captivating dynamism as we have been applying it for over 10 years to develop solutions and concepts for urban electromobility, something that means far more nowadays than just getting from A to B.

After all, nothing compares with the feeling of gliding almost silently through urban or rural traffic, the instant response of the electric engine and unique acceleration from stand-still. And all of this is free of exhaust fumes and local emissions. Join us in the silent revolution. Quite simply #PluggedToLife


Electric mobility on two wheels has to be really fun and exciting.

Synergies with BMW Group and resulting passenger car standards also apply to your BMW CE 04 in a unique way: from the transfer of technical components to high-voltage technology and associated safety demands to cables, connectors and safety shut-off. And it goes without saying that this also applies to the service of your BMW Wallbox.

Electromobility FAQ's

How does my riding style influence the range of my BMW CE 04?

It goes without saying that the riding style affects consumption and thus range. Select Eco riding mode to maximise the range of your BMW CE 04. The scooter also features an energy recovery system that charges the high-voltage battery on the basis of recuperation. Thinking ahead while riding, moderate acceleration and avoiding riding at maximum speed for prolonged periods will additionally contribute towards maximising the range.

Will the battery of the BMW CE 04 wear out over time?

The capacity of a lithium-ion battery drops throughout its period of use. In our battery certificate we specify the best possible service for our customers in this context. It is valid for the first 40,000 kilometres and ends five years after the initial delivery or first registration. If the high-voltage battery is damaged during this time we will repair any material damage caused free of charge. This also applies to an excessive loss of capacity. Visit your authorised BMW Motorrad Retailer to find out more.

Can I also ride the BMW CE 04 if I don’t have a quick-charging option available?

Of course, in this case it is possible to charge the vehicle using the standard charging cable at conventional domestic sockets and obviously also at public charging columns. The charging process will then just take longer compared with the optional quick-charging option.

How to I get access to Quick Charging?

All CE 04’s can be built with a quick charging option from factory production, this allows the standard 0-80% charging time of 4 hours and 23 minutes via single-phase power (1.9 kW) to be increased to 1 hour and 5 minutes on three-phase power (6.9kW). This option is recommended for those aiming to charge on the go for a longer trip than daily city commute. Optional quick charging will however not increase the charging time of the vehicle if connected to a single-phase power source.

Can I add Quick Charging after I have purchased the CE 04?

No. The Quick Charging option must be installed during production and ordered from factory, it cannot be retrofitted as an accessory option to the CE 04.

What do I need to take into account when charging at domestic sockets?

The standard charging cable with 1.9 kW charging capacity forms part of your BMW CE 04’s standard equipment. With a length of five metres it guarantees access to a domestic socket in most cases. Do not use extension leads or power boards.

How do I find a public charging option for my BMW CE 04 on the go?

Owners can charge at at any 3-phase Type 2 charging station. Plug Share can be utilised to filter all Type 2 public AC charging stations. Charging costs will be incurred and network memberships may be required in order to access charging functions. For more information, visit the Plug Share website. 

Which charging cable does BMW Motorrad offer for charging at public charging columns?

The BMW CE 04 can be charged with up to 6.9 kW using the optional quick charger. As standard it charges with up to 1.9 kW. Country-specific differences in charging station installations require single-phase or three-phase charging cables to charge the bike.

For this purpose, BMW Motorrad currently offers a range of three Mode 3 cables to deliver optimum charging results for everyone. These cables differ in charging performance, size and weight:

  • Cables with up to 7.4 kW charging power: 1-phase, 32 amps, 2.35 kg in weight. Recommended in countries with mainly single-phase charging stations. 
  • Cables with up to 22 kW charging power: 3-phase, 32 amps, 3.3 kg in weight. Makes it possible to max out the CE 04’s charging capacity in any situation. As a result, the cable is a little bigger and heavier than the other two variants.
  • Cables with up to 11 kW charging power: 3-phase, 20 amps, 2.15 kg in weight. This is our smallest and lightest charging cable. However, at single-phase charging stations you will not be using the full potential of the CE 04’s charging speed. Yet, in countries with mainly 3-phase charging stations it is a good and practical solution.

Please note that the range of Mode 3 cables may vary from country to country. 

How can I access the charge status of my BMW CE 04?

The charge status of the BMW CE 04 is indicated on the vehicle’s TFT display. You can simultaneously use the BMW Motorrad Connected app to access the plugged-in scooter’s estimated end of charging.

How can I get a BMW Wallbox?

The Wallbox can simply be connected to the domestic power circuit. Thanks to a powerful charging output and three-phase charging (with optional quick charger installed in your BMW CE 04) it effectively cuts charging times. The Wallbox’s cable is five metres long. The BMW Wallbox can be purchased from any BMW dealership, and the dealership will assist with installation information.
