Considerations on the Mila Natural Gas Concept Car
Based on a 1.6-litre standard supercharged petrol engine, a concept car with a powertrain featuring monovalent operation on natural gas was designed and built by Magna Steyr within an extremely short time frame. The systematic application of simulation tools enabled an early definition of the functional characteristics, as well as allowing weight reduction and supporting component selection.
