2012 Ford Mondeo Concept With Radical New Look
Posted on , by Nick Preston
Ford’s star car on their stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show was the Evos concept car. At first glance you may think it’s a modern day version of the classic Ford Capri but in fact, it previews the 2012 Ford Mondeo.
Contrary to appearances, this concept car boasts four large doors and in true concept car fashion they’re of the extravagant gullwing variety and the design of the rear doors means they’re somewhat hidden from view.
Once open, the doors allow easy access to a conspicuously sporty cabin. Emphasising the sporting character of this car is a bright red driver’s seat, plus instrumentation that wraps around the driving position.
The instruments on show inside this car are strangely sci-fi in appearance, if vaguely recognisable as evolutions of those found in Ford’s current cars.
While the concept car is powered by a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, the big technology news is how the Evos interfaces with the driver’s life. Much was made of how the concept car communicates with ‘the cloud’ to use the owner’s personal information in a bid to make life easier.
One such example was the car setting your alarm a little later in the morning if it discovered that your planned meeting had been postponed. Perhaps more usefully the car will continue to play the music you were listening to at home before you left. It will also suggest more interesting driving routes if it reckons you’re up to the task and you have the time.
Car manufacturers seem to be in a hurry to lead the way in “cloud” technology as they believe it’s the future and Ford are dead set to implement this into their future cars. We personally hate it here at TopMotors.
You won’t have to wait so long to see the stunning looks of the Evos on the road as Ford confirmed that a new global production car will be unveiled in January sharing the front end look with this concept.
Could this be a replacement for the world famous Mondeo?
