Diving Deeper Into the Ford Evos Concept Vehicle

Remember the Ford Evos Concept vehicle we introduced to you last week (Ford Evos Concept: What Future Ford Vehicles Might Look Like)? Well, we want to show you that beauty is more than skin deep on this concept vehicle by giving you a deep-dive into the technology built into this concept.

The technology in the Ford Evos Concept reflects a new generation of driver interaction and awareness under development in the Ford Research and Innovation laboratories. Seamless connectivity between the vehicle and the driver’s “personal cloud” of information is at the heart of its capabilities.

The following videos demonstrate how Ford researchers are focusing efforts on delivering four key customer benefits: personalization, enhancement of the driving experience, looking after the driver’s well-being and smart electrified powertrain optimization.

These first two videos provide a look at what the cloud is and how the Ford Evos Concept uses that information to personalized your driving experience to match your lifestyle.

Are you spending more time in your car? If so, this videos shows ways that the Ford Evos Concept may be able to look after your health and wellness as you drive, responding to you without you asking it do anything.

Finally, the Ford Evos Concept can learn about your driving style and preferences, as well as using the cloud to gather data specific to you and your environment. The result is adaptive driving to provide an enhanced driver experience, custom-made for you.

The Ford Evos Concept is one of the Ford vehicle that will be on display starting next week at the 64th International Motor Show, held September 15-25, 2011 in Frankfurt. Come back to theFordStory.com for the latest updates from the show.

N. Rodriguez Love how this car uses the most advanced technologies, while having a sporty and exotic look, however, it's a hybrid, that to me is simply un-American, and it will surely effect the overal reliability of this car in negative ways. :(

alex looool at this :Very Impressive, but lets not forget the long term EMI effects on humans health from the wireless charging pad and all this radiation from computers, sensors and transmitters keeping you informed and entertained from the cloud. I also would like to see the cost of replacing the filters of the advanced filtration system. dear buddy this has already been proven that emi dose nothing to the human body. your probably one of the people that still believe that cellphones harm the human body

hrench nice looking car, but the idea that electric will take over has been wrong since 1910. Also, I don't want a bunch of computers on my car to be broken when it's ten years old. I Like to drive, I don't want the car to drive itself. I would like to be able to afford a new car, but with all of the doo-dads they add, they cost too much. Finally, I don't know where they intend to build it, but the accented-English implies anything but American. Fiesta is nice, but made in Mexico. Even Mustang is only 65 percent US today.

Bob Stringham It would appear that with the smart integration of cloud computing and GPS technology, that we are not far from the implementation of a full-up aircraft-style autopilot, wherein the driver would input the destination and then monitor a hands-free trip in the same manner that airline pilots have an overwatch function, with the ability to intervene or change destination on the fly. Although this flies somewhat in the face of Fahrvergnuegen for some, for those drivers willing and desirous of being unburdened of steering, braking and speed control, this would be a substantial boon. Then again, the vehicle would have to be amply outfitted with situational awareness sensors, constantly computing the location of and the dynamics of other vehicles, potential road hazards and impediments, etc., as well as reacting to traffic and weather related issues. This would require the driver be aware of alerts and warnings either navigational or vehicular in nature and take appropriate action, as necessary. I believe this scenario offers some very interesting possibilities.

Ken Tinsley Build them in the USA and maybe somebody will be able to afford one. Move it overseas, sell it there. not here. When are we gonna wake up

Mark Kitchens It certainly has some benefits, but it also causes concerns about privacy. Whenever there is talk about automatic transmission of information to "toll booths and police", warning flags go up for me.

jerry wheeler How much will they charge for the special lane? The parking space? it will not be free to make and therefore not free to use. I understand that parking is already paid for in many places, but one that charges your car and costs the owner of the space to provide the energy--whether through the electric grid or by purchasing expensive solar panels--will cost a premium. It's not that I devalue the technology, I firmly believe it's place at the table was reserved decades ago. It's just that it is so far behind already that it will cost astronomical amounts of capital to get it to catch up with the range, power, and affordability of traditional internal combustion engines. The Evos is a stunning vehicle but I suspect that the drivetrain is a decade or more away from being plausible.

Carol Clayton Wilson Here's an idea for all those afraid of change. You have to admit this truly is THE hottest concept car you've ever laid eyes on. At least for me I really am keeping my fingers crossed this one is a keeper/actually built. But if Ford were to take this car make it with traditionally swing open doors with the option of having a larger horsepower motor as well as the energy saving model. Wow! We currently own 4 vehicles 2 of which are '06 Mustangs. My husband being a Mechanic we do love Chevy's they make our house payments ;-} but being as he doesn't want to work on our vehicles we ONLY own Ford. So keep it up Ford you've truly made owning a Ford a creature comfort and a joy to drive. If this EVOS is a show and tell of where your headed .....well lets say I'm in for the ride!

Jon Ya Ryan thats exactly what we want..international based companies coming out with everything before us. If u r a "Ford guy" u should realize and appreciate how ambitious they r in being "First" and Pioneers in new technology. Technology is leading to smarter more economical vehicles and that is why they r doing this.

Richard Lovato A fuel sipping AMERICAN make that doesn't look like an economy box? Right on! I was getting tired of toaster-shaped cars, and I know just about everyone has had enough of the Prius. Good way to go, and American at that! Ford knows what their buyers want, and I gotta say, I want an Evos!

Paul Lissona We don't need these horrible radical looking cars. Keep the normal traditional designs kinda like the cars now. Don't go any further with the uncarlike looking concept designs. Who wants that and what's wrong with present and some past designs. Stop trying to get people to approve and be proud of crazy looking vehicles that don't look like cars at all.
