Miray concept to celebrate 100 years of Chevrolet seen in Europe for the first time
13 September 2011

The all-wheel-drive Chevrolet Miray concept has broken cover on European soil for the first time at the Frankfurt motor show.

The hybrid sports car first appeared at the Seoul motor show in March and was unveiled by General Motors Korea as part of Chevrolet's centenary celebrations.

The Chevrolet Miray is an open-top sports car with heavily sculpted carbonfibre bodywork inspired by some of Chevy’s classic models including 1963’s Monza SS and the Corvair Super Spyder from the previous year.

GM is heavily involved in South Korea and is the third largest manufacturer in the country. It has design, engineering and manufacturing operations in the country and this two-seat concept is a product of these facilities.

The hybrid system consists of mid-mounted 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine mated to a dual-clutch ’box powering the rear wheels and twin 20bhp electric motors with a 1.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack powering the front wheels.

The electric motors are capable of powering the Miray, meaning ‘future’ in Korean, alone, although range or performance figures haven’t been confirmed.
