Groove Ford, one of the leading Denver Ford dealers, has been closely following the evolution of Ford's sports cars, and we would like to share one of the newest concepts Ford presented at the Frankfurt Auto Show this year.
The EVOS concept car introduces a new design direction for the global car manufacturer Ford. The vehicle is an interpretation of a fastback bodystyle design, featuring four gull-wing doors which open to reveal a four-seat layout.
The concept offers a bold red driver's seat and the vision of unprecedented driver interface. The two rear seat passengers host dedicated touch-screen displays to interact with the vehicle and individually adjustable sports seats.
The concept's technology experience embraces a new generation of driver interaction and awareness, in which the seamless connectivity between the vehicle and the driver's 'personal cloud' of information is the heart of the vision for its capabilities. With information from the cloud, the vehicle is able to provide the same connected lifestyle the driver experiences at home or the office.
The car knows the driver, automatically adapting its handling, steering and engine control to deliver a dynamic driving experience. Drawing from a detailed understanding of the driver's preferences and habits, the EVOS concept car combines this personal information with additional data from the could, such as the individual's work schedule and local traffic or weather conditions. This information provides a personalized and seamless sophistication as the driver transitions in and out of the car.
"Our goal is to focus on enriching a customer's every experience with their vehicle - by personalizing it, adapting it, and creating unique, unexpected features that surprise and delight them. In the ford EVOS concept, this objective is explored and extended to the area of connectivity, where the intent is not to convert the vehicle into a smartphone, but rather to provide personalized and safe connection to the outside world in an enriching manner designed totally for the vehicle context." - derrick kuzak, group Vice President of Global Product Development at Ford.
Denver Ford enthusiasts will be happy to know that this vehicle will be outfitted with advanced air quality sensors and filtration systems to help allergies, the ford EVOS concept car is location aware, and can access air quality from the could, proactively suggesting a healthier route to the driver's end destination.
The vehicle can even intuitively simplify the appearance of the instrument panel to display only necessary gauge information and switch the driver's connected smartphone to 'do not disturb' mode in order to keep their focus on the road.
The vision for the car is a state-of-the-art lithium-ion plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain providing the same next-generation performance and fuel economy. Ford's 'powersplit' hybrid architecture allows the electric motor and gasoline engine to work together or separately to maximize efficiency.
