New BMW X2 will get bigger and could get an electric version of the iX2January 14, 2021
The 2023 BMW X2 will grow in size and use the new battery-powered modular X1 architecture.
The BMW X2 crossover is a more stylish and sporty alternative to the compact BMW X1 and compact X3. In particular, on the top of the M235i, the small Bavarian SUV offers 301 horsepower, four-wheel drive, and aggressive looks. But information has emerged that by 2023 BMW may be pushing the X2 in a slightly different direction.
The new BMW X1 is due to arrive in 2022, with the X2 a year after it, borrowing many of its characteristics. The X1 has already hit the lenses of spy cameras with more substantial dimensions and with several powerplant options: gasoline, plug-in hybrid and all-electric. The X1 will use a modular front-wheel drive architecture (with optional all-wheel drive), and according to foreign media reports, the X2 should adopt almost all of these key points.
The BMW X2 is expected to be larger than its predecessor by its 2023 debut, offering sooner or later hybrid and all-electric (in the form of the iX2 variant) powertrains. The newcomer PHEV must surpass the current X2 xDrive25e, which offers 56 kilometers of all-electric range.
The main styling features of the new BMW X1 and X2 crossovers will be narrow LED headlights and larger DRLs below them, as well as a larger radiator grille, which is likely to expand horizontally.
