BMW will let selected London Olympics visitors drive prototype electric scooters during the games as it accelerates expansion of its two-wheeler lineup.

The C Evolution model was introduced in London on Friday at the start of a Europewide promotional tour planned for the rechargeable scooters that BMW is targeting for sale in two years, the Munich, Germany-based manufacturer said.

“We plan to bring the scooter in a very similar form to market in 2014,” Rudolf-Andreas Probst, a spokesman for BMW’s motorcycle division, said in an e-mail. “Beforehand, we need to clarify some technical and marketing aspects.”

The C Evolution will be equipped with the same lithium-ion batteries that BMW plans to use in the i3 four-seat compact car going on sale in late 2013.
