Electric BMW will become more affordable again. It plays mainly on range and reasonable performance.
Last fall, BMW surprised with a very affordable basic version of the iX1 eDrive20, which was priced below a number of non-premium competitors. Thanks to this, it was able to cope with derivatives with an internal combustion engine. The strategic move seems to have paid off, as the larger iX2 will get the same version in March along with the new matte black Frozen paint.
The basic model starts at a price of CZK 1,214,642, making it CZK 276,900 cheaper than the xDrive30. Let us remind you that the Mercedes-Benz EQA costs CZK 1,370,930, but has a range of 560 km and an output of 215 kW. The BMW iX2 eDrive20 is powered by a 150 kW electric motor located at the front. Even though it will be the least powerful version, it will conquer 100 km/h in 8.6 seconds and then continue up to a maximum speed of 170 km/h.
The battery with a capacity of 64.78 kWh is identical to the eDrive30 version, but due to the lower power, the car has a 29 km longer range. In total, you can travel 439 to 478 km on one charge. After arriving home, you will probably use AC charging with a power of 11 to 22 kW. On longer journeys, the possibility of DC charging with a power of 130 kW will please you. This means that in 10 minutes you will get the energy to drive 120 km. Charging will be facilitated by automatic communication between the car and the station.
