You Can Virtually Explore BMW’s New X2 With Microsoft’s HoloLens 10

BMW and Microsoft have teamed up to create a unique promotional experience to celebrate the launch of the X2.

The promotion centers on a mixed reality application called the BMW X2 Holo Experience. It runs on the Microsoft HoloLens and allows users to experience “fun challenges” such as guiding the crossover out of a maze or giving the model a unique paint job.

The X2 Holo Experience will be available at select BMW dealerships as well as private events and BMW brand experience centers. Visitors will be able to take a holographic selfie with the car and then take a test drive of the real model.

According to BMW communications boss Uwe Dreher, “The X2 will appeal to a relatively new, young and digitally-savvy target group that is also looking for unique and contemporary experiences from communications. The Holo Experience delivers the desired technical wow-effect, which we hope will maximize our appeal to this target group in a fun and entertaining way, using innovative technology.”

The BMW X2 was unveiled last month and it resembles a large hatchback instead of a traditional crossover. In Europe, the model will be offered with a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine that develops 192 PS (141 kW) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque as well as a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel with outputs of 190 PS (140 kW) and 231 PS (170 kW).

U.S. customers can look forward to a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 228 hp (170 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque.

The Idea Of A BMW X2 Pickup May Not Be So Ridiculous 8
Nov
Posted by Carscoops Staff in BMW, BMW X2, Renderings on 11 8th, 2017


Volkswagen makes pickups. So does Mercedes now. BMW isn’t likely to follow suit, but even if it did, it probably wouldn’t look anything like this.

Still, it’s an interesting sight to behold – the new BMW X2 rendered with a pickup bed instead of an enclosed wagon’s back, brought to us by the talents at X-Tomi Design.

The X2, for those who missed it, is a sportier counterpart to the X1, with a more aggressive stance and appearance. It’s the latest in a string of crossovers from the Bavarian automaker stretching all the way back to the first-generation X5 that debuted in 1999.

Before then, the idea of a BMW crossover seemed ridiculous – maybe as ridiculous as a BMW pickup would seem to us now, especially with Amaroks and X-Classes roaming the roads and backcountries of the world. The big difference, though, is that while Volkswagen and Mercedes have commercial-vehicle divisions (and corporate partners) on which to draw in the development of their pickups, BMW does not.

Still, it seems that BMW has explored just about every other body style, and invented some of its own. So who’s to say it would never do a pickup?
