BMW Australia has announced the iX2 electric ‘coupe SUV’ will available locally with two trim levels, mirroring what will soon be available on the related iX1 electric SUV.
Deliveries of the BMW iX2 xDrive30 are set to commence in Australia in the first quarter of 2024 and is priced from $85,700 before on-roads. This is $800 more expensive than the iX1 xDrive30.
The iX2 xDrive30 will be followed by the entry-level iX2 eDrive20 which will arrive locally in mid-2024 and is priced from $82,900 before on-roads. This is $4000 more than the iX1 eDrive20.
This announcement of local BMW iX2 pricing follows a few weeks after the German carmaker revealed the new-generation X2, which is due to launch locally in the first quarter of 2024.
For now BMW Australia hasn’t detailed standard equipment for the iX2 eDrive20, however specifications for the iX2 xDrive30 mirror what’s offered in the iX1 xDrive30.
These two forthcoming BMW iX2 vehicles will join the iX1 eDrive20, iX1 xDrive30, i4 eDrive35 and iX3 M Sport in the brand’s line-up of electric vehicles (EVs) that fall under the Luxury Car Tax (LCT) threshold for fuel-efficient vehicles, and are also exempt from Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) for fleet operators.
When the iX2 eDrive20 and iX2 xDrive30 arrive next year, BMW Australia will have a total 15 all-electric variants across seven models.
The BMW Group currently anticipates by the end of 2024 at least one in five of the company’s new vehicles will have an all-electric powertrain.
In 2025, it expects this number to rise to one in four, and in 2026, one in three.
By the end of 2025 the BMW Group aims to have more than two million EVs on the road.
