The Chevrolet Miray (Korean for "future") was a concept car designed, branded, and built by Chevrolet. Introduced at the 2011 Seoul Motor Show, the car shows a “mid-electric” concept.[1]

Design[edit]

Exterior[edit]

The exterior of the Miray is made of carbon fiber and has an angled groove on the side that lighted underneath it.[1] It has LED headlights and a dual port grill.[1] At the rear, there are retractable flaps that give the vehicle additional airflow.[1] The concept has aluminum-carbon fiber composite wheels that are 20 inches in the front and 21 inches in the back.[1] Occupants enter the vehicle through scissor doors.[1]

Interior[edit]

The interior is composed of brushed aluminum, natural leather, white fabric, and liquid metal materials.[1] A projected instrument panel shows the performance of the Miray. The cockpit was inspired by the Chevrolet Corvette.[1]

Functionality[edit]

Instead of traditional side mirrors, rearview cameras emerge from the side windows while a front-facing camera shows real-time video that is overlaid on the GPS navigation.[2]
