Two concept cars from Chevrolet will make their European debut at the Frankfurt motor show next month.
Miray The Miray roadster concept car – which was unveiled at the Seoul motor show in March – is powered by two front-mounted, battery-powered electric motors.
Miray is Korean for future. Chevrolet says the concept car ‘takes a fresh look at what a sports car of the future might be.’
Chevrolet says that the Miray has been influenced by past models – particularly the 1962 Corvair Super Spyder and the 1963 Monza SS – but the angular styling, carbonfibre body and LED lights are right up to date.
The Miray’s high-tech interior includes a carbonfibre shell, while there are retractable rear-view cameras instead of traditional door mirrors.
Chevrolet calls the Miray’s drive system ‘mid-electric’ – power from the front-mounted electric motors can be switched between the front and rear wheels, while a turbocharged 1.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine provides extra power for 'performance driving'.
Although a production version of the Miray is unlikely, Chevrolet says that aspects of its design – and drivetrain – are expected to filter through to future production models.
