Ford Mondeo EVOS was seen for the first time in camouflage. Details emerged in the photos shared on a Facebook group. The viability of the Ford Mondeo has long been giving headaches, and headline jumps, to the American firm. This situation is due, in large part, to the drop in sales that the segment of generalist medium saloons has been experiencing in recent years. Also, it has a lot to do with the drift, towards the SUV segment, which has taken the manufacturer’s product strategy.
However, some rumors indicate that yes, the Mondeo is dead, and on the other hand, it is the brand itself that says that it still has a lot of life left. Be that as it may, the current generation Ford Mondeo has been on the market since 2014. Now that it is five years old, it has received a restyling to update it. For this reason, each day that passes, the moment approaches to decide if they will finally “kill” him or if, on the contrary, he will have a deserved relief.
The Ford Mondeo EVOS could be an electric saloon
The fact is that thanks to the Intellectual Property Office of London we have learned that the firm of the blue oval is working on something special. In this entity, they have requested the registration of a promising commercial name: Ford Mondeo EVOS. Yes, EVOS. Doing a bit of memory, we will dust off a futuristic concept that they presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in 2011.
Con él, anunciaban el código estético que luce el actual Mondeo, amén de muchas de las tecnologías que han llegado a la gama Ford. El caso es que, aún tratándose de un modelo con cierto tiempo, todavía podrían rescatarse ciertos aspectos para una nueva generación del sedán medio. En primer lugar, con 4,5 metros y unas líneas de coupé, se metería de lleno en la guerra abierta por el nuevo Peugeot 508.
Second, the EVOS Concept was powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain with up to 800 kilometers of range. Therefore, it seems logical to think that the next Mondeo EVOS could join electric fashion. Finally, we cannot ignore that if they have applied to register this denomination, it is that we could be facing a twist of the Mondeo concept.
Be that as it may, the current-generation Mondeo will remain on sale until 2021 or at the latest 2022. Therefore, it will be necessary to be attentive to the news that may occur. The registration application is dated August 15, so it is still in the process of being examined. Once through the filters, we will be able to know which direction the American house is taking.
