Chevrolet Tru 140S concept

Most of the concepts in attendance at the Bangkok motor show are those that have been previously shown at other venues, but the Chevrolet Tru 140S is among the most recent, having made its debut only in January at the Detroit show.

Chevy is targeting the youth market with this one, and we can tell – the Cruze-based four-seater coupe concept boasts very muscular proportions, with striking elements such as matte white paint, a sharply dipping and rising shoulder line, twin central tailpipes, aggressive face and those glitzy 21-inch wheels with crossflag emblems. That cab-forward design almost makes it look mid-engined, too.

150 hp and 200 Nm of torque come from the Cruze’s 1.4 litre Ecotec four-cylinder, which is mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed auto ‘box. Should the Tru 140S become a production reality, we can comfortably expect the Chevy Volt’s extended-range electric drivetrain to feature in this as well. Fingers crossed, then!
