BMW has extended their X2 line-up with the xDrive25e plug-in hybrid model. Whilst it uses the same system as the X1, the X2 favours a sportier trim, better driving experience and greater all-electric range compared to its sibling. However, all this comes at the expense of some practicality and a higher price tag.

Charging Details

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2020 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
