Introducing the BMW X2 Plug-in Hybrid
Think Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) with enhanced performance, the BMW X2 xDrive25e is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of the practical, sporty-looking X2.
Up to 32 miles of pure electric driving can be enjoyed in the X2 Plug-in Hybrid. Not only does this reduce running costs, it also enables free access to ultra low emission zones in cities; due to there being zero emissions released whilst in all-electric mode.
Longer journeys require the efficient internal combustion engine to engage and work in conjunction with the eDrive electric motor.
A comfortable and thrilling driving experience can be enjoyed in the X2 PHEV, whether you are completing a short urban drive or a longer cross-country expedition.
Range and Performance
Being crowned the most efficient model within the X2 range, you can expect the fuel consumption to be in the region of 160mpg (WLTP combined).
Meanwhile, the combination of the 1.5-litre petrol engine and the eDrive electric motor results in an impressive total power output of 217bhp. This is just 5bhp less than the most powerful model in the range; the M35i.
62mph can be reached from zero in just 6.8 seconds and even more impressive is the all-electric range of up to 32 miles on a single charge.
Whilst behind the wheel of the X2 Plug-in Hybrid you can clearly see the hybrid-specific instrument cluster, which allows you to check the charge level indicator in addition to the purely electric and combined range.
When it is time to re-charge the battery in the X2, there is no need to panic as the process is super simple. If you are at home or work you can simply charge using a conventional household plug socket or even better, a dedicated BMW i Wallbox. Using the Wallbox, the vehicle will reach 80 percent of its full capacity in just 2.4 hours or in 3.2 hours it will be fully charged from empty.
If you are out and about, you can make use of one of the many public charging stations located around the UK.

Despite its coupé-like aesthetic, the X2 is undeniably rugged like the rest of the BMW X range. The plug-in hybrid powertrain utilises a 4th generation lithium-ion battery and the latest hybrid drive to plunge the X2 xDrive25e to new levels of SAC performance.
