BMW will unveil an electric scooter concept model and an entry level Husqvarna streetbike concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.

The BMW concept, shown in the teaser sketch above, will likely be a version of the E-Scooter electric maxiscooter concept announced in July. BMW claimed the E-Scooter’s liquid-cooled electric motor offers performance similar to a 600cc combustion engine, while the battery casing itself will form the body of the frame.

The BMW concept will be displayed alongside the German manufacturer’s i3 and i8 electric automobile concept vehicles, also set to debut in Frankfurt.

BMW’s subsidiary, Husqvarna, will also have a strong presence at the Frankfurt show. Along with its Nuda 900R naked streetbike, Husqvarna will display a concept model designed to be a commuter vehicle for young riders.

For the first time, BMW and Husqvarna’s motorcycles will be given their own Motorrad pavilion at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (aka Frankfurt Auto Show), a biennial motor show held in Frankfurt and one of the world’s largest auto shows.
