I saw a video of Lindsay Benko who uses 2beat kick and a hip driven technique.

Click here.
According to the video, Lindsay uses a 6BK for sprints (up to 200m) and 2BK for the 400m. When using a 2BK, she switches to a more shoulder-driven stroke.

Notice how little she glides at the front of her 400m stroke. Notice that her tempo is 80-85 SPM.

Here's a transcript of the video commentary starting at 10:35:

[Mark Schubert] Lindsay uses a 2-beat kick for the 400; she has a higher tempo; her arms are at a higher stroke rate. 2 kicks per cycle.

[Lindsay Benko] When I use a 2-beat kick my arm tempo is a little bit faster than when I'm using a 6-beat kick, so i'm relying more on my arms.

Nice find!

In the start she says it’s the same kind of technique as in the 6 beat kick(Look at 10:48) I don’t see any difference in action except that the arms are at a higher stroke rate. Also I don’t understand this classification of Shoulder driven techniique.Does it mean hips remain completely stationary?
I think there is a bit of shoulder driven, hip driven mixed in the freestyle stroke..

She glides more and rotates her body more with a 6BK, compared to her 2BK. With a 2BK she uses a much quicker catch.

Definitely not. Shoulder-drivers rotate their hips, just not as much as hip-drivers. Hip-drivers use their shoulders, just not as much as shoulder-drivers. These are subtle differences.

This video may help clarify things:
