While the Evos diversifies Ford’s lineup, it won’t go into production. “The Ford Evos Concept was specifically developed to introduce the new Ford design direction. Key design elements will be applied to forthcoming Ford vehicles,” the automaker says in a press release.
Even though Ford vehicles may borrow Evos design cues, there’s a lot that distinguishes the concept from typical Fords like the Fiesta, Focus and Fusion. The Evos has front and rear gullwing-style doors, a front grille that rides low to the ground and long, thin headlights. Even J Mays, Ford’s design chief, recognizes that the Evos is a bit over the top, telling The New York Times, “We’re theatrical. We can’t help it.”
Kicking Tires adds, “Being a concept car, the Evos carries a barrage of technology: a plug-in hybrid drivetrain from Ford’s C-Max Energi, health-monitoring seats that adapt to your current mood, and adaptive driving dynamics and entertainment through cloud-based driver information.”
The Evos will debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September, and according to The New York Times, who spoke with Mays, some of the Evos’ design cues will pop up in Ford products within the next four months, possibly at the Detroit auto show in January.
