The Evos is a hybrid fastback four-door which explores design potential and digital connectivity.

The formal opening of the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show is still a few weeks away but Ford has already unveiled their new concept called the Evos. The fastback gullwing four door aims to give a glimpse at Ford's evolving global design language. The Evos is essentially a rolling design and technology inspiration board which will inform development under One Ford, the company's global strategy to unite their product offer with outstanding design, smart technologies, and energy efficiency.

The exterior evolves Ford's kinetic design language towards a more technical tone. The trapezoidal grille looks more tapered and the headlights have a low profile. The fastback profile gives the Evos a sleek, performance inspired silhouette complimented by uncluttered surface sculpting. The Evos sports dramatic gullwing doors which reveal passenger space inside for four. When we squint at the photos, especially the overhead shots, it is hard not to see influence from recent Aston Martin cars in the shape of the Evos.
