With its advanced plug-in hybrid drive, the BMW X2 xDrive25e meets the highest demands for efficiency and driving dynamics. The combination of the eDrive electric motor and the three-cylinder gasoline engine provides exhilarating driving performance and brand-typical driving pleasure. In pure electric mode, the vehicle is even free of local emissions on the road. This model also has a range in electric mode of 57 km (NEDC) / 53 (WLTP). Skip the restrictions with the new X2 Plug-in Hybrid and its 0 tag.
Plug-in hybrid cars are a type of vehicle powered by two engines, one combustion and the other electric, with the consequent benefits for the environment and the reduction in fuel consumption that this entails.
The plug-in hybrid version of the BMW X2, a compact-size SUV with a sportier cut, lands on the market this July with a price that will start from 48,500 euros. It measures 4.36 meters and in its X2 xDrive25e version it approves 53 km of WLTP electric autonomy, benefiting from the Zero label from the DGT.
The plug-in X2 comes with new aesthetics that will allow you to quickly differentiate it from the other versions. BMW has redesigned the front bumper and eliminated the round fog lights, which are now integrated into the LED headlights. This also results in a cleaner bumper which probably also results in a small aerodynamic improvement.
It also reveals the cover of the charging socket located on the left front wing, where the car can be plugged in to charge its 10 kWh battery (located under the trunk). Another novelty is the introduction of the metallic 'Phytonic Blue' color for the body paint, the blue that you can see in the images.
The X2 xDrive25e can be customized with several equipment lines: Advantage, Advantage Plus, M Sport and M Sport X. From the basic finish it comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, auxiliary air conditioning with remote activation, navigator GPS with efficient driving assistant, eDRIVE mode and specific functions for the hybrid engine in the multimedia system, among other elements.
On a mechanical level, its hybrid system combines a three-cylinder 1.5 gasoline engine with 125 horses, which sends the torque to the front wheels, and a 95 hp electric motor that drives the rear wheels. The combination of both engines results in 220 hp of maximum power and 385 Nm of torque, and creates a configuration with xDrive all-wheel drive.
The electric motor is powered by a 10 kWh (gross capacity) lithium-ion battery. The battery is located under the boot (410 liters capacity) and allows approval of 53 km of WLTP electric autonomy, for which it benefits from the Zero emissions label from the DGT. With the optional BMW i Wallbox wall charger. Finally, the battery can be fully charged from 0 to 100% in 3.2 hours, or in about two and a half hours for the 80%.
As usual, the hybrid system has several operating modes. The fully electric 'MAX eDrive' mode is assigned by default every time the car is started, and with it you can drive at a maximum speed of 135 km / h.
