BMW Details Facelifted 2020 X1 xDrive25e Plug-In Hybrid America Won’t Get

BMW has released detailed information about the facelifted 2020 X1’s plug-in hybrid variant badged xDrive25e.

The powertrain consists of a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 125 PS (123 HP) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque, a rear-mounted electric motor making 70 kW (95 PS / 94 HP) and 165 Nm (122 lb-ft) of instant torque, and a 9.7 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

The internal combustion engine drives the front wheels via a 6-speed Steptronic automatic transmission while the electric motor drives the rear wheels via a single-speed transmission, enabling AWD capability.

Together the gasoline engine and electric motor produce a system output of 162 kW (220 PS / 217 HP) and a maximum system torque of 385 Nm (284 lb-ft). That’s enough to allow the 2020 BMW X1 xDrive25e to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7 seconds and reach a top speed of 192 km/h (119 mph) in hybrid mode (135 km/h or 84 mph in all-electric mode).

In terms of efficiency, the X1 xDrive25e offers an all-electric driving range of up to 50 km (31 miles). Recharging the battery takes around 5 hours at conventional household sockets using the standard-equipment charging cable or less than 3.6 hours using a BMW i Wallbox.

The average fuel consumption is as low as 1.8 l/100 km (130.6 mpg US / 156.9 mpg UK), with corresponding CO2 emissions of 40 g/km. The combined power consumption is 15 kWh/100 km. All figures are calculated according to the new WLTP cycle.

Because the battery pack is located underneath the rear seats, the X1 xDrive25e is less practical than its conventionally powered siblings. The luggage compartment has a capacity of 450 liters (14.3 cu ft) with all seats in place and 1,470 liters (51.9 cu ft) with the rear seats folded down. For comparison’s sake, gasoline- and diesel-powered BMW X1 models offer 505 liters (17.8 cu ft) and 1,550 liters (54.7 cu ft), respectively.

European customers can have the X1 xDrive25e in four equipment lines (base, Sport Line, xLine, and M Sport) and can personalize it with all the options offered on the conventionally powered BMW X1. The PHEV won’t be available in the U.S. where the 2020 X1 only comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine.
