Ford representatives do not hide their intention to abandon the production of passenger cars in the near future, which would allow them to focus on creating new SUVs, cross-hatchbacks, pickups and station wagons. An important step in this direction for the world famous brand was the presentation of Evos, the heir to Mondeo. This model was presented to motorists at the Shanghai Auto Show.
Evos repeats the feat of the Citroen C5 X, that is, it completely erases the boundaries of different segments, combining the characteristics of different classes. The almost five-meter car was created on the platform of a slightly "stretched" Ford Focus. Front-wheel drive model with independent rear-mounted suspension. As for its technical characteristics, they still remain classified. However, experts have reason to believe that the Evos bonnet hides the PHEV hybrid powertrain.
Pleases the car and the modern interior. The focus is on the digital instrument cluster (12,3 "), the innovative Sync + 2.0 multimedia system with a large 27" screen. Not without a modified autopilot, a proprietary Blue Cruise development, which now boasts a second level of autonomy. Owners of Evos will also have Virtual Personal Assistant at their disposal, an indispensable assistant on the road. It is easy to interact with him, he, among other things, exchanges data with other machines (on which the same electronic assistants are installed), analyzes the infrastructure of the city (for which the V2X protocol is involved).
The novelty will be manufactured at the same plant that produces the Mustang Mach-E. Evos is expected to enter the US market at the end of 2021. Europeans will have to wait for it next year.
