Olympic champion Katarina Witt tests the BMW C evolution electric scooter

Katarina Witt tests the BMW C evolution

The Summer Olympic Games in London are currently thrilling the international public – just as the Munich Games did with their unique atmosphere 40 years ago. To mark the 40th anniversary of the Munich Olympics, BMW Group Olympic Ambassador Katarina Witt was invited to a Munich '72 theme evening at the Deutsches Haus (German house) in London on Thursday.

The double Olympic figure skating champion took the opportunity to test the BMW C evolution as a passenger on the production-based prototype of a powerful electric scooter. The smart two-seater is currently being presented to the international press in London. The motto of the 2012 Olympic Games – Inspire a Generation – could almost have been written for the innovative scooter, which is the latest result of the BMW Group's sustainability and future strategy.

"The BMW C evolution not only looks cool, but also features cutting-edge technology," said Witt. "With this electric scooter, BMW is once again demonstrating its high levels of innovation. The BMW Group was involved in the marathon and walking races at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich with the BMW 1602 electric car. As such, today's anniversary event sees the issue of environmentalism come full circle."

Five fully roadworthy prototypes of the BMW C evolution will be put to the test in the London traffic until 12th August. This will be followed by outings in other major European cities. The practical experience gained will allow BMW Motorrad to prepare for the future launch of the production vehicle.

The BMW Group, the most sustainable automobile manufacturer in the world, is the Automobile Partner of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games in London, where it is providing about 4,000 low-emission vehicles for athletes, officials and the organization team.

The BMW Group Olympic Ambassador was joined at the "40 Years on from the Munich Games" celebration at the Deutsches Haus by Bavarian minister for economic affairs Martin Zeil, Munich's second mayoress Christine Strobl, honorary member of the National Olympic Committee Walter Tröger and Michael Vesper, Chef de Mission of the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) team in London.

Mazeltov. IMO, sustainable far beats the alternative. Sustainable=good. Unsustainable=bad
