BMW M240i xDrive Coupe (G42). Purple version

The second-generation 2 Series coupé was revealed in July 2021 as the successor to the F22 2 Series coupé and convertible. Remaining a rear-wheel-drive-based model, the G42 is built on the CLAR platform with a roughly 50:50 weight distribution and shares many mechanical components and engine options with the G20 3 Series and G22 4 Series.

Unlike its predecessor, the second-generation 2 Series coupé is no longer available with a manual transmission and not complemented with a convertible body style. The launch models consist of the mild hybrid diesel engine 220d, the petrol engine 220i and 230i and the top M240i xDrive.

The G42 2 Series will be exclusively produced in BMW’s San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico. The G42 is the first BMW vehicle designed by BMW of Mexico. Production of the G42 2 Series commenced on 2 September 2021.
