Traction, agility, power and optimised consumption – the new BMW 225xe Active Tourer PHEV combines BMW eDrive technology and a BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, for the ultimate driving experience. While electrical xDrive is enhanced by a smart interplay of electric power and limitless mobility, CO2 emissions of up to 141.2 miles per gallon are just another high-performing advantage of driving and owning this BMW. 

And in addition to all of the above, a range of up to 25 miles can be achieved when pure electric mode is active - saving you fuel (and consequently money) while reducing emissions. One thing is for sure, this BMW is most commonly associated with versatility and cost-effectiveness, ensuring the highest level of driving pleasure, at all times.


Uniting functionality and aesthetics; this new BMW is an unquestionably dynamic, welcome addition to the 2 Series line-up. Whether viewed from the front, rear or sides, the 225xe Active Tourer is striking from every angle thanks to a heavily contoured framework. Further enhanced by a high bonnet, low windscreen and completely refined rear design, which features daring, large L-shaped lights and wide wheel arches - a surprisingly complimentary sporty finishing touch.


Keeping you connected to the road ahead at all times, BMW ConnectedDrive allows you to synchronise your smartphone (iOS or Android); providing you with the latest BMW Remote Services in addition to hybrid-specific functions. Ensuring that you’re fully aware of your specific consumption and efficiency values, these services have been designed with every type of situation in mind – available both inside and outside of your BMW. Generously proportioned on the inside, with a 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat for optimum storage solutions, this 2 Series boasts an elevated seating position that allows rear seat passengers to really enjoy a view of the road in front of them, without a blocked vision.


As a plug-in hybrid, this Active Tourer equally prioritises driving pleasure to striking aesthetics. With multiple drive modes available to suit your individual preferences, BMW driving can be as relaxing or exhilarating as you like. From urban driving to day-to-day commutes and not forgetting long distance journeys; the efficient plug-in hybrid concept aids an efficient driving experience. While a forward-thinking interplay of the electric motor and combustion engine make those tiresome journeys a real pleasure, whether you’re driving at speed on the motorway or in built-up, slow moving traffic. For ultimate e-mobility, charging has been made simpler and can take place using a conventional household power socket, BMW i Wallbox or ChargeNow public charging station.

All Brand New BMW’s come with a 3 Year Manufacturer Warranty and 3 Years Emergency Service.

If you're a rear-wheel drive BMW fundamentalist, the 2 Series Active Tourer will have you frothing at the mouth but then the X5 probably did the same when that was first launched and look how significantly that vehicle has contributed to the Munich maker's bottom line. In many regards, it was BMW themselves that were responsible for perpetuating a dogmatic engineering-led line and it's one they now have to chew through a lot of humble pie in order to move forward. The 2 Series Active Tourer is the kind of vehicle this brand needs to make. It's been blowing budget developing models that appeal to minuscule sub-niches without addressing a major market. That's largely due to the fact that in order to exploit the MPV sector, it needed a front-wheel drive car and it needed to overcome that awkward moment. That seems to have happened: the 2 Series Active Tourer looks good and we all need to move on. It's a new era for BMW and one that will only be good for UK customers.
