At the Geneva Motor Show Magna Steyr will present the MILA Plus, a study of a plug-in hybrid sports car that combines lightweight construction, a hybrid drive train and an emotion-driven design.
Австрийский поставщик запчастей Magna Steyr, на предприятии которого собирается внедорожник Mercedes-Benz G-Class, представил собственный концепт-кар под названием Mila Plus. Купе оснастили гибридной силовой установкой.

Концепт-кар, который австрийцы собираются привезти на открывающуюся 3 марта выставку, представляет собой двухместный спорткар, основой конструкции которого является сделанная из алюминия пространственная рама.

Источником энергии для машины, получившей имя Mila Plus, стала гибридная силовая установка - трехцилиндровый бензиновый двигатель и два электромотора (каждый из которых передает крутящий момент на одну из осей). Создатели автомобиля заявляют, что до сотни автомобиль может разогнаться за 3,6 с. Для компактных родстеров это более чем выдающийся показатель: к примеру, самый мощный BMW Z4 при базовой цене в 3,5 миллиона рублей тратит на это почти 5 секунд. Заявленный запас хода составляет 500 км, при этом 75 из них Mila Plus может проехать, не потратив ни капли бензина.

В конструкции прототипа применены облегченные материалы, позволившие снизить массу до 1520 килограммов. Уровень вредных выбросов машины не превышает 32 грамма CO2 на километр.

Представители Magna-Steyr особо отмечают, что все детали шасси и интерьера автомобиля могут быть переработаны и использованы повторно. Они же говорят, что спорткар может пойти в серию уже через два-три года. Правда, стоит отметить, что с 2005 года на Женевском автосалоне было представлено уже семь концепт-каров Mila (аббревиатура от Magna Innovation Lightweight Auto) - и ни один из них до конвейера так и не доехал.


VIENNA, Austria, Feb. 26, 2015 - Magna International Inc. is set to debut MILA Plus, an innovative two-seat hybrid sports car at Geneva Motor Show 2015. The concept vehicle, which will be displayed at Magna's booth #6261 in Hall 6, combines a sophisticated, lightweight construction with an intelligent, alternative-drive solution to produce maximum performance as well as eco-friendliness.  With an all-electric range of 75km and a vehicle weight of 1,520kg, MILA Plus achieves reduced CO2 emissions of 32g/km.

"Magna's broad range of services – from engineering to diverse product capabilities to full-vehicle contract manufacturing – helps support our customers as they continue to be challenged with the changing dynamics of the automotive industry. The MILA Plus vehicle concept illustrates our value proposition and advantage within the global supply base," emphasized Günther Apfalter, President Magna Europe and Magna Steyr.

As the latest vehicle concept in the MILA innovation family, MILA Plus features advanced technologies and flexible manufacturing processes with a focus on eco-friendliness.

Lightweight Construction

The structure of MILA Plus is based on an extruded aluminum space frame which has a number of advantages over a steel structure, including: lower weight; modular structural flexibility; and ability to accommodate different driveline configurations. The modular body-in-white (BIW) concept also allows the use of components and systems from large series production, thus enabling improved manufacturing efficiency and flexibility for global automakers.

MILA Plus offers additional benefits aimed at structural rigidity and weight reduction. For example, the concept integrates a high-voltage battery into the space frame, which increases structural rigidity. Lightweight plastic body panels are used due to their corrosion resistance and styling flexibility. A combination of manufacturing methods, sophisticated joining technologies and a multi-material external skin further contribute to a lightweight vehicle architecture that meets global safety standards.

Sophisticated Joining Technologies

Cold mechanical joining, a hybrid process in combination with bonding is used on the BIW. This reliable technology is more cost effective versus traditional welding solutions and is a joining process Magna has used on other vehicles including the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and Aston Martin Rapide.

Alternative Drive Solutions

MILA Plus plug-in hybrid system achieves a reduced emission of 32g/km CO2. The performance of the three-cylinder gasoline engine is enhanced by the addition of two electric motors - one between the internal combustion engine and transmission to drive the rear axle, and one on the electric front axle. This arrangement results in an electric all-wheel-drive system which transmits more torque to the road and results in improvement of vehicle maneuverability and dynamics.

Emotional Design

The striking shape of MILA Plus underscores the vehicle's sportiness. The vehicle's compact appearance and flowing lines create a dynamic and captivating appearance.  Aesthetics and innovative technology are elegantly combined in the design concept of MILA Plus.

Two cameras replacing the exterior mirrors not only improve the car's aerodynamics but provide wide-angle, high-resolution live images shown on two display screens inside the vehicle concept – helping minimize side blind spots.

Sustainability

The alternative drive system with an all-electric range of 75km, together with electrification of the accessories, yields a highly efficient drive concept with CO2 emissions of 32g/km. The completely recyclable aluminum body-in-white makes a significant contribution to sustainability. The interior uses renewable materials such as paneling components made of bioplastics and natural fibers.
