Ceder Mille (2020-Onwards)


For the 2020MY Update Mille has recieved improved styling in it’s front fascia, select trims are now available with bi-tone paint and a new engine has been added to the range, a 0.8 litre 3 cylinder petrol. This new engine has been designed to provide sufficient horsepower, excellent fuel economy and emmisions and is aimed at the type of lowcost lifestyle where long journeys are not necessary.

The new 0.8 litre engine has already seen success in Asian markets where it is fitted in the Ceder Nimble, and comes fully equiped with our VAiL system (VVL+VVTi).

Since Mille’s introduction in 2016, unlike other neo-retro designs, it was not a simple remake of an original model but a contemporary model taking inspiration from pieces of Ceders history allowing it to not be trapped by past ideals but cherry pick the best bits, and despite it’s rear engined design it still shares a variety of modular parts such as doors with the front engined Mérite.

Engine Capacity Engine Family Horsepower Range Availability Standard Transmission
799cc SAE I3 (Small Asia Engine) 57 800L, 800TL MT 5 Speed
975cc cc SME I3 (Small Mondial Engine) 65 (N/A) / 95 (T) 1000TL (N/A), 1000LS (T) MT 5 Speed (1000TL), DCT 7 Speed (1000LS)

For the future the Mille will be available in a fully electric trim and a PHEV utilising the 0.8 litre engine. Additionally the 1.3 diesel will be pulled from all markets by August 2021 and will be phased out in Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom by September 2020.

Buyer: I can buy this cute car for my daughter! Not too powerful, safe, reliable Inline 3, good gas milage cause she dont like to pay for gas, perfect!

A de-stroked and turbocharged version of the Mille’s triple would make a nice kei car powerplant. Speaking of kei cars, the Mille looks like a cuter, scaled-up version of one.

Ceder Espérer MKIV (2021-)



The 2018 Espérer followed our traditional recipe for an executive Ceder, safe, fast and a liftback design, though unkeeping with tradition it’s is unavailable with a V6 engine favouring more modern, efficient and powerful 4 cylinder turbocharged powerplants than the V6’s of yesteryear.

The 4th generation Espérer sees an early-life update along side the Foré on which it’s platform is familial. The GLM-L (Global Lightweigt Modular - Large) platform on which the Espérer is based features multilink rear suspension and is fully adaptable to be fitted with our 4ward® AWD system in select models.

Petrol powertrains still consist solely of our WJ Series inline 4 cylinder. Though the WJ Series roots can be traced back to prior the millenium it’s longevity has allowed us to perfect it’s construction to the benefit of both fuel efficient and performance applications with the added aid of our VAiL Jet 2X technology . Said engines are shared within other Ceder vehicles such as the Foré and Tofane in order to maintain mechanical modularity and familiarity.

The 2021MY update consists of minor aesthetic changes and the addition of two new powerplants and trim levels to the range, a 305hp 2.0T and a 230hp 1.6T hybrid, fitted to GT300 and GTh trims respectively, with the 305hp 2.0T engine also being used in the Foré CRT “Ditane Edition” hot hatch.

The fully active hybrid powerplant uses a sychronous 41KW electric motor intergrated to function with the 8 speed automatic transmission, and has functional battery energy recuperation.

All GT and GTh models come as standard with: full LED Crystal lighting, adaptive shock absorbers, adaptive cooling, HUD, Android Auto or Apple Carplay and our C.I.S.P (Ceder Intelligent Safety Protection) package which includes pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist and pre-collision active braking assistance.

Engine Capacity Engine Family Horsepower Range Availability Standard Transmission Drive Type
1597 cc WJ Series (1.6-2.0) 175 Vital, Vital Tech AT 8 Speed Front Wheel Drive
1993 cc WJ Series (1.6-2.0) 208 Vital Tech, Entice AT 8 Speed Front Wheel Drive
1597 cc + Electic Motor WJ Series (1.6-2.0) 230 (175 + 41/55 (KW/HP) Electric Motor) GTh AT 8 Speed All Wheel Drive
