Here is a link to the official BMW (lengthly) press release on the new Mini electric scooter concept vehicle. It is filled with styling and feature comments, but has little technical or performance specifications. Frankly, I wonder if it is even a "runner".

The head of the BMW design group talks about their Mini electric scooter concept vehicle. Naturally, he talks about the design of the scooter and nothing about the mechanical stuff. See the two-minute video here:
