  • 21 Accesses


Magna Steyr has built an individual concept vehicle called “mila” that combines driving fun and eco-friendliness. The vehicle complies with the statutory road regulations and runs on the alternative fuel CNG (compressed natural gas). It is powered by a 1.6-litre supercharged inline mid-engine that is transversely mounted in front of the rear axle [1].
