Manufacturer turned concept specialist, Magna Steyr, is set to unveil its latest creation at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

Under the company’s Mila banner, the new concept is called the Mila Plus; and follows the likes of the Coupic and ‘ev’ concepts from previous Geneva shows.

The concept is powered by a plug-in hybrid setup, featuring 75km of electric-only range and a low CO2 output of 32g/km.

A three-cylinder petrol engine is accompanied by a pair of electric motors - one each for the front and rear axles - producing a combined output of 200kW with peak torque rated at 580Nm.

Using all available power, the concept will hit 100km/h from rest in 4.9 seconds, while the 0-80km/h sprint takes 3.6 seconds using only the electric motors.

The concept measures 4403mm long, 1925mm wide and 1250mm high with a wheelbase of 2575mm. Total storage is 360 litres, and Magna Steyr says a golf bag will fit in the rear compartment.

A recyclable aluminium space frame helps to keep overall weight down to 1520kg, and the company says the design lends itself to future uses from other carmakers (Magna Steyr is aligned with plenty).

Body panels are plastic, and ‘cold mechanical joining’ processes - as seen on some Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz models - have been used to bring it all together.

Magna Steyr says its new concept is a “hybrid sports car”, which “offers solutions to industry challenges”.

“The Mila Plus concept illustrates our value proposition and advantage within the global supply base," Magna Steyr President, Günther Apfalter, said.
