Chevrolet CODE 130R Car Concept is a tad more akin to various other models in Chevrolet’s range. There’s the heavy dose of retro mixed to the car’s bodywork, but there’s also several styling features, especially at the front, which tie it to the company’s overall design philosophy. Perhaps nearly all interestingly of all though could be the fact it’s been engineered for you to accept a RWD powertrain. Like the particular TRU 140S concept, the CODE 130R was designed with younger buyers in mind. According to Ough.S. Census data, you will find 80 million American consumers approaching 30. They represent 40 percent of today’s potential car-buying public, and also a combined $1 trillion in purchasing power. For you to attract some of those dollars, your Chevrolet CODE 130R is designed to supply affordable but entertaining motoring.
Powering the Chevrolet CODE 130R concept is often a 150 horsepower, 1.4 litre turbocharged powerplant with eAssist. By shutting away the engine at stops, recapturing braking energy, and smoothing torque delivery throughout acceleration, this system allows balance turbocharged performance with fuel economy. The proposed standard transmission can be a six-speed automatic. But for those that like to row their unique gears, a six-speed guide option is also being touted. Frank Saucedo, director of the GM North America Advanced Design studio in Los Angeles wherever both concepts were produced said of the cars: “Young consumers tell us they want functionality together with coupe-like aesthetics. Both the Code and also Tru body styles resonated with this audience. This consumer prizes connectivity. Allowing them to stay connected by integrating their individual devices through MyLink as well as WiFi enabling the vehicle to be their own docking station”. It remains to become seen whether the actual CODE 130R, or the TRU 140S, manages the transition through prototype to production.
