GM introduced the Chevrolet Miray Korea (pronounced Mi-ray), a concept in the Seoul Motor Show 2011 – a mid-engined sports model electric hybrid. The Miray (meaning “future” in Korean) was created to celebrate the centenary of Chevrolet, which will take place this year. The design of “future” is also present inside the center with the center console, power button, lighting and double cab design for driver and passenger.
The concept of the propulsion system consists of two front electric motors, each producing 15 kW (20 hp / 20 hp) of power to the front axle unit with a 1.5-liter gasoline four-cylinder turbo mid-mounted rear causing the rear wheels. Current electric motors comes from a package of 1.6 kWh of battery lithium ion battery that is recharged through braking.
The Miray is capable of running on electric power alone and the petrol engine kicks in with his gearbox with double clutch change faster when extra power is needed. Chevrolet did not provide performance numbers, or range for the concept.
In terms of aesthetics, the design has some keys to the Chevrolet heritage and was inspired by models such as the SS 1963 and 1962 Corvair Monza Super Spyder. There is a distribution network of the front fascia and sharp lines and smooth design of the car rounded a bit. The body also uses carbon panels, such as spoilers. The Miray is also equipped with 20 inch front wheels and 21-incher in the rear.
