Auto parts supplier Magna Steyr is set to unveil a little project of its own at the Geneva Motor Show, in the form of the all-electric mila ev (lower case letters preferred by Magna Steyr it seems).

Magna Steyr says that because the mila ev was designed from the ground up to utilise a range of clean power options, the company was free to focus on more vital aspects of the car: weight, strength, handling, crash safety, and so forth.

The mila ev concept, despite its short and compact nature, is a genuine ? and extremely stylish ? five-door hatch.

Running a set of lithium ion batteries, the mila ev is designed to be good for a range of about 150km on a 2.5 hour charge, courtesy of its 50kW electric motor.

A solar cell-laced roof has been included in the design, to feed a little extra power into the little motor and likely also to power other features of the car such as air conditioning and lighting.

The mila ev is purely a concept and Magna Steyr has given no indication that we?ll ever see it on the road.

It may be a case of watch this space. The mila ev is tecnhically production-ready and the company says it has the facilities to produce it.
