motor and lithium-ion batteries
The Magna Steyr mila ev which was revealed at the 2009
Geneva motor show is the third concept to be unveiled
by Magna Steyr. Previous concepts included the MILA
The Magna Steyr mila ev is an electric powered city car
concept which has been designed from the ground up to
accept a fully electric powertrain.
The platform on which the mila ev is based is a thoroughly
developed concept which can be used for production-vehicle
development immediately and thus for series production
in the shortest of time as a genuine electric vehicle
or, thanks to the flexible design, with natural gas, fuel
cells or hybrid drive.
The exterior styling of the mila ev has been designed
to convey a sense of futuristic elegance. One of the more
unusual styling elements of the concept is the connection
which has been made between the headlight assembly and
the side windows. The blue strip which runs along the
doors and around the rear of the vehicle acts as a display
panel to clearly show the level of power left in the batteries.
The Magna Steyr mila ev is driven by a 67 hp electric
motor supplied by lithium-ion batteries developed by Magna
Steyr. At an average charging time of 2.5 hours, ranges
of up to 150 km (93 miles) can be achieved.
