BMW 2 Series Active Tourer Plug-In Hybrid

This model will be called BMW 223e SAT (acronym for Sport Active Tourer) and the internal code of its propulsion system is XB2149M0, corresponding to the same powertrain that sat in the BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor.

The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer plug-in hybrid was spotted wearing little camouflage during a test trial in Spain. The light camouflage tries to hide the plug-in cover on the left front fender and some final design details.

Other specific details of this model are the roof wing that helps with aerodynamics and a “mysterious” metal box on the rear axle.

The front spoiler design is specific to this model compared to the one fitted as standard and optional with M package.

In the concept form, BMW announced that the combined power for the hybrid is around 200 horsepower from a gasoline engine and electric motor. It remains unknown if it will be offered with the xDrive option.

BMW 223e SAT will also get the new ZHP 9-speed automatic transmission.

The petrol engine in the car is the 3-cylinder 1.5 liter TwinPower turbo.

The fuel consumption is said to be around 2.2 liter per 100 km and the CO2 emissions below 50g/km. In 100% electric mode, the 223e SAT should have a range between 30 and 35 kilometers.

30-35km AER (assuming NEDC) is very low for a compact car, even just for commuting, as soon as you factor in colder temps, A/C, a couple of errands etc.

I wonder why so low? Even if the main purpose is more performance-with-lower-emissions than a green car (IIUC, it will also have AWD), I’d still expect a bit more AER.
