Initial details have been announced for the 2020 BMW X2 xDrive25e plug-in hybrid ahead of a public debut later this year.
The all-wheel drive powertrain in the X2 xDrive25e is identical to that found in the X1 PHEV. It uses a 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine developing 92kW and 220Nm which is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
A 70kW/165Nm electric motor spins the rear wheels via a single-speed transmission.
BMW says that when the 10kWh lithium-ion battery pack is fully charged, the X2 xDrive25e has a pure electric driving range of up to 57 kilometres. With the car in EV mode, it can reach a top speed of 135km/h.
The claimed 0-100km/h sprint time is 6.8 seconds, while the top speed with the engine running is 195km/h.
European delivered cars will feature 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the ability to pre-condition the cabin remotely via a smartphone app.
