Chevrolet Introduced Two Concept Coupes at 2012 NAIAS

At the 2012 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Chevrolet has presented not one but tow concept coupes which aimed to get positive feedback and suggestions from inspiring next-generation buyers for further modification of these concept cars.

“These two concepts interpret that vision for a new generation. We’re seeking out our newest customers’ opinions, listening to their advice, and engaging them in new ways.” said General Motors North America President Mark Reuss.

Let’s start with the first Chevrolet concept, the Code 130R. This is a four-seat coupe with a simple upright profile painted in an all-new red metallic paint with matte anodized gold wheels. Code 130R is a rear-wheel drive coupe which features heritage performance-inspired styling through its aggressive front fascia, Chevrolet fender flares, straight body side and Chevy crossflag emblem.

Code 130R will be powered by a turbocharged engine conceived to be tuned to work in tandem with eAssist technology. This eAssist technology can shuts off the engine during stops, recaptures energy and smoothen torque during acceleration thus optimizing turbocharged performance with fuel economy.

Alternatively, Tru 140S, Chevrolet second concept is a front-wheel-drive, “affordable exotic” four-seat sporty coupe. This three-door hatchback was designed to be an attractive-yet-affordable sports car. It presents itself in an all-new matte white with Chevy performance chrome wheels featuring crossflag emblems. Tru 140S is based off the same platform as the Chevrolet Cruze and the groundbreaking Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle with extended range. It also features direct injection and a starter-based stop-start technology which balance internal combustion and electrification to deliver high value and improved fuel economy.
