More Pictures Of The MILA Coupic Pickup-Crossover-Convertible

As a writer, I really don't like to admit that the whole adage about a picture and 1,000 words is correct. But in some cases, it definitely is. We covered the MILA Coupic concept last week when it was first announced, but without more pictures of the concept in its various configurations, the article was incomplete. With a few new pictures, we're able to complete the story.

The MILA Coupic is a concept built by Austrian engineering and manufacturing firm Magna Steyr. While it's not exactly a household name, Magna Steyr is a prominent force in the automotive industry and provides services to many well-known brands.

The MILA Coupic is the sixth concept in the MILA family and shows how a single car can serve multiple functions with the proper equipment. The three-in-one concept is a crossover, convertible and pick-up truck thanks to several electronically operated systems. Front and rear retractable roof systems provide for convertible configuration and folding rear seats open up a bed in back.

The Coupic is just a design study with no hope of production, but it would be great if some automaker partners with Magna Steyr to build a versatile car like this. Having the hauling capabilities of a pickup truck, the better balanced AWD capabilities of a crossover and the touring enjoyment of a convertible in one car would be great for drivers - maybe not that great for manufacturers wanting to sell multiple cars, though.
