The plug-in hybrid system of the new BMW X1 xDrive 25e and the new BMW X2 xDrive25e consists of a 1.5 litre 3-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology and an electric drive specially developed for this model. It is taken from the eDrive technology modular system of the BMW Group. The petrol engine mobilises a peak output of 92 kW/125 hp and a maximum torque of 220 Newton metres. It transfers its power to a 6-speed Steptronic transmission and drives the front wheels. The electric motor generates an output of 70 kW/95 hp and delivers 165 Nm of torque to the rear wheels via a single-speed transmission. This makes for a hybrid specific all-wheel drive, which gives both models a unique level of agility in their competitive fields delivering hallmark SAV and SAC driving pleasure. The highly responsive power delivery of the electric motor, which delivers its full torque spontaneously from standstill, enables the driver to react extremely quickly to changing driving conditions. In addition, the position of the electric motor above the rear axle contributes to the harmoniously balanced axle load distribution of the new BMW X1 xDrive25e and the new BMW X2 xDrive25e. In conjunction with the intelligently controlled interaction between the two power units, it provides maximum driving stability, ride comfort and dynamic response.
The technical highlights include a range of 405 kilometres (provisional figures) and the rapid charging of the high-voltage battery from 10 to 80 per cent in less than 45 minutes. Customers can also choose between two different wheel bases.
The all-new e-2008 SUV is powered by a 100kW (136bhp) electric motor and 50kWh battery. Under WLTP testing, the 100% electric zero-emission SUV will achieve 193 miles of range.
The 50kWh battery is positioned under the floor of the all-new e-2008 SUV, so there’s no compromise to boot or interior space whichever powertrain is selected.
The flexible quick charging station can be installed almost anywhere and charge all kinds of electric vehicles
Several factors interact while charging: the electric power of the charging port, the charging technology fitted in the vehicle and the size of the vehicle’s battery. Charging times have been cut from several hours to a few minutes by technological advancements. However, cables with a reduced diameter that makes them easy to handle at the charging station would seriously overheat without active cooling. Leoni has developed a special HPC cable for liquid-cooled charging systems so that the temperatures in the cable and on the connector do not exceed a set limit. Thanks to LEONiQ – Leoni’s innovative cable technology – the charging cable becomes an intelligent system solution that can monitor the charging process in the cloud and optimise it.
