Magna Steyr has officially unveiled the new Mila Plus hybrid Concept, the prototype that will be unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the event which will kick off during next week.
According to the Austrian manufacturer, the concept is a two-seat sports car that weight 1.520 kilograms (3,350 pounds). It is built on an aluminum frame with integrated batteries that should increase the stiffness. Under the hood of the Magna Steyr Mila Plus hybrid is a 3-cylinder petrol unit and two electric motors.
For now, the Austrian officials haven’t revealed the performance details but they have told us that the run from stand still to 100 km/h (62 mph) is done in 4.9 seconds in the hybrid mode. If you will choose the electric mode, the run from 0 to 80 km/h (50 mph) is done in 3.6 seconds. The total range of the Magna Steyr Mila Plus hybrid is around 500 kilometers (310 miles) and 75 kilometers (46 miles) can be done on pure electricity.
According to Magna Steyr, the interior and some of the chassis parts are made from fully recyclable materials and a production version can enter into the assembly line in two to three years.Source: WCF
