The BMW 2 Series Coupé and Cabrio are luxury compact coupés and convertibles produced by German manufacturer BMW since 2013; they are part of the 2 Series lineup. Although it is the successor of the 1-Series coupé, it is continuing the BMW 02 coupés as a successor in that segment. The name, 2-Series, is based on BMW's rationalization of its model designations reserving odd numbers for 4-door sedans and even numbers for 2-door coupés and coupé-like cars. Currently at launch, there are the basic models 218d, 220d, 220i, 225d, and the range-topping BMW M235i internationally.
