Magna International is one of the largest automotive supply companies in the world, providing parts to American, German and Japanese auto giants alike.
It might seem strange that such a company would introduce a concept car, but Magna is doing just that. It hopes in doing so to show off future car parts and far-reaching ideas. The Mila Coupic is Magna’s latest example, set to debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
The Mila Coupic concept aims to marry three automobile styles into one: an SUV coupe, a pickup and a convertible. Aesthetically, the Coupic resembles an SUV, but the low profile also lends itself to coupe-esque styling. The roof is perhaps the most interesting feature, allowing the passengers to open either the front or rear sections independently.
“The MILA Coupic multifunctional concept showcases vehicle functionality through flexible seating systems, roof modules and materials,” said Magna president Guenther Apfalter.
Although this car will never find its way to production, the materials and features may pop up in some your favorite cars in the not-so-distant future.
