The all-new BMW X2 and the first-ever iX2

Featured in:
November 2023

BMW X2 range starts at £39,365 RRP, all-electric BMW iX2 priced from £56,540 RRP. Deliveries commencing in March 2024.

The BMW X2 first introduced the concept of a Sports Activity Coupé in the premium compact segment.

And now the even more distinctive, sportier and forward-looking second generation is set to reaffirm BMW’s leadership in the fast-evolving sector.

Significantly larger dimensions, a pronounced coupé silhouette and dynamic lines visually showcase the development leap taken by the new BMW X2. The progressive character of the new model is also evident in the fully electric BMW iX2 variant, as well as in a large spread of driver assistant systems enabling automated driving and parking, and in the innovative digital services delivered by the new BMW iDrive with QuickSelect and BMW Operating System 9.

The range of drive variants extends the car’s appeal into additional target groups and will contribute to the new BMW X2 building on the success of the original model, of which more than 380,000 examples were sold worldwide.

The world premiere of the new BMW X2 and new BMW iX2 will take place at the Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo (formerly the Tokyo Motor Show).

The new BMW X2 will be priced from £39,365, with the iX2 xDrive30 starting from £56,540 RRP. Order books are now open at BMW retailers across the UK, with the first deliveries expected to begin in March 2024.

Accelerating the ramp-up of electric mobility
The company now has at least one pure electric vehicle in all major model segments and is aiming to have more than two million fully electric vehicles on the road by the end of 2025. By 2030, it is anticipated that every second vehicle sold by the BMW Group worldwide will have an all-electric drive system.

A flexible vehicle architecture allows the new BMW X2 and BMW iX2 to be produced on a single assembly line at BMW Group Plant Regensburg.

The high-voltage batteries for the fully electric variant are also made at the Regensburg site. BMW Group Plant Regensburg has become the automotive industry’s first plant worldwide to use an end-to-end digitalised and automated process in standard production for inspection, processing and marking of painted vehicle surfaces by Al-controlled robots. The Bavarian plant is therefore taking another step towards becoming a digital and intelligently connected facility – the BMW iFactory.

Sporty exterior design complemented with a modern and spacious interior
The distinctive, sporty appearance of the new BMW X2 is accompanied by a modern cockpit design shaped by digital innovations, including the BMW Curved Display, and by a spacious interior.

The new BMW X2 has grown by 194mm in length over its predecessor, to 4,554mm. This means the model also stretches 54mm beyond the BMW X1. Its wheelbase is now 2,692mm (+22mm), and it also stands 21mm wider, at 1,845mm. Wider tracks at both the front and rear, together with the larger-diameter wheels, give the new BMW X2 a broader, muscular stance on the road. The vehicle height is 1,590mm, up 64mm compared with its predecessor.

The BMW M kidney grille fitted to the new BMW X2 M35i xDrive bears the M logo. The grille also sports horizontal double bars, a design cue originally developed for high performance models from BMW M GmbH. The same applies to the quartet of exhaust tailpipes – each measuring 100mm in diameter – integrated into the rear apron.

Cockpit design includes M-specific displays and availability of M Sport seats
The M-specific cockpit design also plays its part in creating a high-intensity performance experience inside the new BMW X2 M35i xDrive. Highlights include aluminium Hexacube Light interior trim elements, an M leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles and a red centre marker.
