The new BMW X2 is a progressive Sports Activity Coupé
The second-generation BMW X2 is set to redefine the Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) concept in the premium compact segment. Larger, more pronounced, and futuristic, this model comes with electric variants, advanced driving systems, and innovative digital features via BMW iDrive with QuickSelect and BMW Operating System 9.
Launch and Production
Launching in March 2024, the lineup includes the all-electric BMW iX2 xDrive30, BMW X2 M35i xDrive, and other fuel-based variants. More models will be added in the summer of 2024. The BMW X2 and iX2 will be produced at BMW Group Plant Regensburg, supporting the shift to electric mobility and sustainability across the vehicle lifecycle.
The BMW X2 boasts a dynamic Sports Activity Coupé design, distinctly different from the BMW X1. It's grown significantly in dimensions, emphasising a coupe silhouette. Unique features include striking LED headlights, a hexagonal BMW kidney grille with optional Iconic Glow contour lighting, and a distinct roofline that complements its coupé-like structure. The M35i xDrive has an incredibly dynamic look with M-specific features. Various paint finishes, including Fire Red metallic, add to the vehicle's premium appeal.
