German automaker BMW is working on increasing its electric vehicle portfolio and the 2024 BMW iX2 is among the latest to join the bandwagon.
The Sports Activity Coupe, as the car is referred to by the manufacturer, is the fully electrical counterpart of the second-generation X2.
2024 BMW iX2 Exteriors and Interiors
The upcoming BMW iX2 is majorly similar to that of the BMW X2, barring a few minor differences. The electric variant will have a fully sealed underbody, no exhaust tips and be fitted with a sealed-off kidney grille. The rear diffuser at the back will also be styled differently to account for better airflow. Like the BMW X2, the iX2 will have a pronounced silhouette and a sloping roofline that makes it look more aggressive than the iX1 predecessor.
For the inside, the coupe will be equipped with a curved display that is a combination of a 10.25-inch infotainment screen and a 10.7-inch digital dash. This curved display will be powered by the manufacturer’s iDrive 9 operating system. The car will also be equipped with an upgraded safety suite and there will be four USB-C ports, a 12-volt power socket, the manufacturer’s satellite navigation system and a sports leather wheel inside the car.
