Ford Evos concept live photos, 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show
A plug-in hybrid sports coupe from Ford? That's the Evos Concept
, and though it's a front-driver, the design is sleek, modern and clean, and it's serving as a preview of the future of Ford's Kinetic design theme.
It's also a look into the near-ish future of Ford powertrains, airing a range-extending engine with a hybrid drivetrain. The Evos can run in gas-only, electric-only, or hybrid modes as fuel, charge, and the conditions demand. Range is claimed at up to 500 miles between a full battery charge and a tank of gas.
It won't be built, however, so take it for what it is: a preview of some of the future of Ford's design department. While you won't see the Evos on a dealer lot, you'll probably see bits and pieces of it.
