For the centenary of Chevrolet, Seoul advanced design center wanted to demonstrate the brand’s desire to make smaller vehicles while still sporty the concept Mi-ray is the expression of that wish (3991x1865x1100mm).

The two electric motors provide 30kW (40 hp) are powered by a 1.6 kWh Lithium-Ion battery pack.
The petrol engine is a 1.5l four cylinder turbo, fitted with the Start & Stop technology.


Despite the announcement made by Chevrolet and even the invention of a new name (Mid-electric) this concept is nothing more than a conventional hybrid because, with 1.6kWh of capacity, the battery must not allow  a very impressive range... But we can notice the turbocharged downsized engine and its fuel economy between 60 and 63 mpg (under 4l/100km), the performances have not been revealed for the moment.
