a front wheels. The electric engine generates an outlay of 70 kW/95
hp and delivers 165 Nm of torque to a back wheels around a single-speed
transmission. This creates for a hybrid specific all-wheel drive, which
gives both models a singular turn of lively in their competitive
fields delivering hallmark SAV and SAC pushing pleasure. The highly
manageable appetite smoothness of a electric motor, that delivers its
full torque casually from standstill, enables a motorist to react
intensely fast to changing pushing conditions. In addition, the
position of a electric engine above a back spindle contributes to the
harmoniously offset spindle bucket placement of a new BMW X1
xDrive25e and a new BMW X2 xDrive25e. In and with the
cleverly tranquil communication between a dual appetite units, it
provides limit pushing stability, float comfort and energetic response.

Together a explosion engine and electric engine furnish a system
outlay of 162 kW/220 hp. The limit complement torque of both expostulate units
is 385 Nm. The new BMW X1 xDrive25e accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in
6.9 seconds. The new BMW X2 xDrive25e does a 0 to 100 km/h scurry in
6.8 seconds. In addition, a electric boost supposing by a drive
complement ensures additional reserve pot and heated sporty flair
when overtaking on nation roads, for example. The tip speed of the
new BMW X1 xDrive25e is 193 km/h. Maximum speed of a new
