Compact crossover BMW X2 will be built on a new platform

The new BMW X2, which will debut in 2023, will be larger than the current model and will be built on a new modular platform that could form the basis of the iX2 electric crossover.

As reported by AutoBild, citing its own sources at BMW, the new generation X2 compact crossover will be built on a new modular platform, including, among other things, the use of an electric power plant. The car should have a choice of traditional powertrains, including plug-in hybrids, and electric powertrains are likely to be the prerogative of a separate model called the iX2. The new generation car will also increase in size.

Front-wheel drive will be the base for the model, and the xDrive all-wheel drive transmission will be offered as an option. The premiere of the new BMW X2 is scheduled for 2023. A year earlier, a new generation X1 crossover should appear, which will share a modular platform and power units with the future X2. The upcoming X1 and X2, judging by the spy shots, will receive a new front end in the style of the updated X7 crossover and the future 7-series sedan with two-story head optics: narrow main headlights and thin stripes of navigation lights above them.
