BMW X2 xDrive25e

The new BMW X2 xDrive25e plug-in hybrid has an electric range of 35 miles and CO2 emissions of 43 g/km.

Described by BMW as a ‘Sports Activity Coupe’ (SAC) – and the first in the compact segment with a plug-in hybrid powertrain – the new BMW X2 xDrive25e will be launched in July 2020.

It features a 3-cylinder petrol engine, which delivers torque to the front wheels, a 10 kWh battery and an electric motor generating an output of 70 kW/95 hp powering the rear wheels, producing a system output of 162 kW/220 hp, and providing all-wheel drive traction, and a 0-62mph time of 6.8 seconds.

The new BMW X2 xDrive25e enables electric driving in three operating modes. In the AUTO eDRIVE standard setting, the petrol engine and the electric motor work together.

The MAX eDrive mode can be activated for maximum use of the electric drive up to a speed of 84 mph.

The SAVE BATTERY mode enables the driver to save battery capacity for later use.

The battery sits underneath the rear seat, giving a luggage capacity of 410 litres which can be increased to 1,290 litres.

A BMW i Wallbox allows 0-100% charging in 3.2 hours. A BMW Charging card also offers access to the world’s largest network of public charging stations.

The new BMW X2 xDrive25e can be ordered in Advantage, Advantage Plus, M Sport and M Sport X trims and virtually all options of the conventionally powered BMW X2 are available for the plug-in hybrid model.

The BMW X2 has powertrains including three-cylinder petrol and four-cylinder diesel engines, the new plug-in hybrid option, and a 306 hp unit in the BMW X2 M35i.

BMW already has four X models with plug-in hybrid technology including the BMW X5 xDrive45e with a 54 mile electric range.
