Ford Evos concept to debut in South Africa image

Making its South African debut at the 2013 Johannesburg International Motor Show in October, the Evos concept reveals the company’s new global design language and provides an inside view of the future technology.

The Ford Evos Concept was conceived as a fastback concept, combining a striking profile with innovative proportions. The lines conceal a unique new format, with a four-door, four-seat layout, which combines dynamic appearance with surprising practicality. With the length of a typical compact car, but with width of a middle size-car, the Ford Evos Concept has a powerful, sporting stance.

“The Ford Evos Concept was specifically developed to introduce the new Ford design direction while also showcasing future smart technologies. While you will never see this car on the road key design elements and innovations will be applied to forthcoming Ford vehicles,” says Ford South Africa Marketing Manger Gavin Golightly.

“The role of the Ford Evos Concept is to give a clear message about where Ford is heading. Its modern design gives an indication of Ford’s intent to continue to offer a range of smart technologies, already evidenced in South Africa with the award winning EcoBoost engines and SYNC system,” he adds.

The Ford Evos Concept integrates technology in a holistic way meant to enrich the driving experience. By exchanging data with the cloud, the Evos extends the connected lifestyle from home and office to the vehicle, providing new possibilities for personalization and adaptability of the car. Ford researchers have also incorporated technologies to enhance driver health and wellness while at the wheel. Features such as the heart-rate monitoring seat and certified allergy-free interiors connect to the cloud to monitor the physical state and workload of the driver, and adjust the driving experience accordingly.
