Dramatic Evos concept shows off Ford's future design direction

Ford's Evos concept will be on display at Salon Privé this September.

The concept, which is said to preview future models from the Blue Oval, uses Ford's 'Kinetic' design language. 

The four-door, four-seat fastback is a plug-in hybrid, using a lithium-ion battery to power an electric motor in conjunction with a conventional engine. Engine sizes, displacements and power outputs are not yet known.

Inside, Ford is keen to draw attention to the Evos's 'personal cloud' - which allows the driver to store information over a wireless network. Given that technology would require a mobile phone signal, it is expected that the Evos will also offer drivers a personal wireless internet hotspot.

Salon Privé will be featuring the Evos in its new Concepts and Prototypes display.

The Evos concept has been seen in the flesh before, having been unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011.

God, this is one beautiful car! Ford can really do brilliant. In dynamics and looks Ford has become the new Alfa Romeo. The king is dead, long live the king.

I think one can replace Ford's "Kinetic design language" with "Aston Martin rehash" ... Nice concept though ...
