This is the BMW X2!

Mat’s got his hands on the electric edition of this all-new coupe-style SUV from BMW to see if it can match up with class leaders like the Tesla Model Y and Volvo EX30.

So for starters, let’s check out the design. Naturally, the electric edition of the X2 looks the same as the petrol-powered car. There’s a sloping roofline coupled with an extended spoiler around the back, while the side profile is identical to the petrol-powered car. Wheel sizes range from 19 to 21 inches, and around the front this electric edition comes with a blanked-out grille that even lights up at night! We’re also a big fan of the indentation on the bonnet to help make it that little bit more aggressive.

Step inside and the iX2 is a lovely car to sit in. There’s a curved infotainment & digital dial display, with the latter being super customisable. There are soft-touch materials throughout most of the cabin, and the seats are pretty comfortable as well. It’s just a shame that they come with manual adjustment buttons, especially when you consider this car could cost more than £65,000! It’s also a shame that the climate controls are done through the infotainment screen instead of having physical buttons, but they’re still relatively easy to use.

If you’re looking for a petrol-powered X2, there are two versions available. The 20i comes with a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine that can deliver 170hp and comes with front-wheel drive. Then there’s the M35i, which comes with a 2-litre turbo engine that offers 300hp along with four-wheel drive! If you want to go electric, the entry-level iX2 comes with a single motor and 204hp, while the xDrive 30 has dual motors and can put down 313hp. Both iX2s come with a 65kWh battery pack and a claimed range of around 283 miles.

The entry-level X2 starts at around £42,000, while the cheapest iX2 starts at around £51,000. However, if you go for a range-topper and add a couple of options, you can expect to be spending more than £65,000 on one! So is it worth it? You’ll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!
