Hey, gearheads and luxury aficionados, buckle up because BMW is back at it again, redefining the streets with the second generation of the X2, and introducing its electric sibling, the iX2, for the very first time. Yes, you heard that right – BMW is electrifying the Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) world, and we’re here for it!
Bigger, Bolder, BMW-er!
The new X2 isn’t just a facelift; it’s a gym membership, a new wardrobe, and a charisma class all rolled into one. We’re talking about significant growth in size, a pronounced coupé silhouette, and a presence that screams, "I've arrived, and I know it!" The electric iX2 variant? Oh, it’s not just a quiet sibling; it’s the forward-thinking, eco-conscious, tech-savvy member of the family, ready to make its mark with zero emissions and a whole lot of style.
World, Meet the iX2
Come March 2024, the iX2 is hitting the streets, and it's not coming quietly (well, actually, it is). With a combined electric power consumption of 17.7 – 16.3 kWh/100 km and CO2 emissions of a whopping 0 g/km, it’s the electric dream we’ve been waiting for. And for those who still enjoy the roar of an engine, the X2 M35i xDrive is your speed demon, with a fuel consumption of 8.0 – 7.7 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 181 – 174 g/km.
Designed to Turn Heads
The X2 isn’t just a car; it’s a statement. With its distinctively BMW kidney grille, which for the first time in the compact segment, can light up like a Christmas tree (if Christmas trees were super stylish and made by BMW), it’s impossible to ignore. The M Sport package, available across the range, adds that extra flair that says, "Yes, I’m driving a BMW, and yes, it’s fantastic."
Inside the Luxe-Mobile
Step inside, and you’re greeted by a world of luxury, sportiness, and technology. The BMW Curved Display, floating armrest, and the plethora of seating options ensure that every drive is a pleasure, whether you’re in the driver’s seat or just along for the ride.
The iX2 isn’t just about looking good; it’s got the performance to back it up. With a system output of 230 kW/313 hp and a 0 to 100 km/h time of 5.6 seconds, it’s not playing around. And with a range of 417 – 449 km/160 – 279 mi, it’s ready for whatever adventure you’ve got in mind.
The Future is Now
With the new X2 and iX2, BMW isn’t just setting the bar; they’re launching it into the stratosphere. With cutting-edge technology, a commitment to sustainability, and a design that’s both bold and beautiful, they’ve created something truly special. So, get ready, world. The future of driving is here, and it’s wearing a BMW badge.
