BMW X2 plug-in hybrid to offer CO2 emissions from 38g/km

5 BMW xDrive25e plug-in hybrid

BMW’s X2 xDrive25e plug-in hybrid is to offer an electric-only range of 33 miles and CO2 emissions from 38g/km.

The model, which will be launched in July 2020, will be the fifth BMW X model to offer a plug-in hybrid powertrain, and has WLTP fuel economy of 166mpg.

The X2 xDrive25e features the fourth-generation BMW eDrive technology and combines a 70kw electric motor and a three-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine to produce a combined 220hp.

A 10kW battery is positioned under the rear bench.

The electric motor will power the rear wheels and the petrol engine the front wheels, to provide all-wheel drive.

The car offers three driving modes. In the standard auto setting, the drive system ensures optimum interaction between the two power units in all driving situations.

Max eDrive mode can be activated for maximum use of the electric drive up to 84mph, while Save Battery enables the driver to save battery capacity for later use while driving in purely electric mode.

In Germany, the powertrain is available in Advantage, Advantage Plus, M Sport and M Sport X trims. BMW has yet to announce available equipment levels and pricing for the UK.

Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, auxiliary  air-conditioning and hybrid-specific readouts on the control display.

BMW says virtually all options of the conventionally powered X2 are available for the plug-in hybrid model.
