Ford is unveiling what they call a new truly global design language, in the form of the Ford Evo concept car. And let me just say that is unbelievably beautiful! The Ford Mustang suddenly looks old.
This is in the design league of the Audi S5 or the BMW 6 Series Coupe.
The doors are a bit weird. You not opening the doors--you open the entire side of the car. Great for showrooms--absolutely impossible to use in a car park.
It is designed to be hybrid (no surprise there)
It also features an impressive array of technical features. It is connected to the internet, so you can extend you home into the car. It can continue playing the music you were listening at home, when start the car. It will automatically adjust to whoever is driving, set the heating and music etc. depending you level of alertness. I am not really sure how that would work, but maybe if you get sleepy it will crank down the temperature and play heavy metal at full blast ...that would wake you up!
Along with the full range of Ford Sync features, it can also connect to your friends cars, and suggest new routes on the fly.
