Austrian company, Magna Steyr, is known for assembling cars for other automobile companies, working on building vehicles like the Fiat Bravo and Audi TT. Now, it has again decided to show off its designing skills to the world by announcing that it will debut its MILA Coupic concept study at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
What makes the Coupic so different is its versatility: it is a 3-in-1 car, capable of being used as a pick-up, SUV coupe or convertible. The multi-functional car will be able to house five adults comfortably to enjoy a ride in this innovative concept that uses a combination of design cues. Construction has been done in different layers, where the lowest level is the hardiest to provide stability; the middle layer encompasses safety; and the top-most level gives the car its sportiness and elegance.
So how does it manage to incorporate three different styles of automaking? Well, the Coupic features roof modules that can be manipulated to turn the car into a convertible or SUV. The front roof system can be opened beginning from the front all the way to the rear so occupants will have an open-air experience. The rear roof system, meanwhile, allows users to open it in two directions (above the loading area and rear seats) to turn it into a pick-up. When not converted, the Coupic remains an SUV. What’s best is that the conversion into a pick-up or convertible takes place with just the push of a button.
This novel creation by Magna Steyr is sure to set heads turning at the motor show. The sixth concept vehicle in the MILA family, the Coupic follows the likes of the Mila 1, a green modular sports car; the Mila 2, a two-seater version of the Mila 1; the Lounge, a yacht on wheels; the Alpin, a compact off-roader; and the Aerolight, a CNG-powered compact car.
