BMW has officially announced the X2 xDrive25e plug-in hybrid featuring the same powertrain introduced by the facelifted X1 xDrive25e last year.
The combined available output is 162 kW (220 PS/217 HP) while the maximum system torque is 385 Nm (284 lb-ft). That’s enough to allow the BMW X2 xDrive25e to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.8 seconds (vs. 6.9 seconds in the X1) and reach a top speed of 195 km/h (121 mph) – 2 km/h higher than the X1. The top speed in EV mode is 135 km/h (84 mph) for both models.
The X1 plug-in will be available in xLine, Sport Line, and M Sport guises; the X2 puts up more choice with Advantage, Advantage Plus, M Sport, and M Sport X trims. Both come standard with features like dual-zone climate control, BMW ConnectedDrive with Concierge Service, and 17-inch wheels, plus a choice of 13 interior upholsteries .
The X2 xDrive25’e launch is part of BMW’s goal to have more than one million electrified vehicles on the road by late 2021. The company estimates a quarter of the vehicles sold in Europe by then will be electrified, with the percentage estimated to reach 33 by the middle of the decade and 50 percent by 2030. To achieve this objective, four new X PHEV models are on the agenda as part of a greater plan to launch 25 new electrified vehicles by 2023.
