BMW iX2 revealed - Coupe version of iX1, 313 PS/494 Nm, 449 km range 01

This is the first-ever BMW iX2, an all-electric version of the second-generation (U10) BMW X2.

Built on the same platform as the regular X2 (codenamed "U10"), the iX2 boasts superior aerodynamics. BMW engineers have achieved a lower drag coefficient of 0.25 Cd for the iX2 compared to the X2's 0.27 Cd.

This enhanced aerodynamic performance is the result of exterior tweaks such as a closed-off kidney grille and a fully sealed underbody. The battery pack, situated under the floor contributes to the iX2's improved slipperiness. A rear diffuser has been incorporated to optimize airflow and extend the vehicle's range.

Performance-wise, the iX2 xDrive30 gets a dual-motor setup for all-wheel drive capability and delivers a combined output of 313 PS and 494 Nm, accelerating the iX2 from 0-100 km/h in 5.6 seconds.

Equipped with a 64.8 kWh battery (usable), the iX2 xDrive30 has a range of 417 to 449 km in the WLTP cycle. This efficiency is partly achieved through the integration of a heat pump in the automatic climate control system, which can precondition the interior before driving.

Charging the battery is facilitated with standard 11 kW AC charging with the optional 22 kW charging. DC charging is rated at 130 kW.
