Ford Mondeo Sport Announced As Rebadged Evos For China

While it continues to revamp its lineup in the hotly contested automotive market of China, Ford debuted a brand new crossover – the Evos – at the Shanghai Auto Show back in 2021. Interestingly, Ford also filed to trademark “Evos” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) back in 2018, but abandoned that filing just over one year ago. Now, The Blue Oval has seemingly ditched the Evos name altogether, instead opting to rebadge that same model as the Ford Mondeo Sport.

In a recent post on the social media platform Weibo, Ford China announced that the Evos will now be known as the Ford Mondeo Sport, borrowing part of its name from the Mondeo sedan, which was discontinued in Europe some time ago, yet lives on in China as a mid-size sedan built specifically for that market. Though it will now be sold under a new name, the Ford Mondeo Sport retains the same styling, yet adds new badging and some additional exterior color options.

The interior of the Ford Mondeo Sport is also a carryover, featuring a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and the rather massive 27-inch screen running SYNC+ 2.0 software. However, it’s also now only available with one powertrain option – the same turbocharged 2.0L I-4 gas engine paired with an electric motor that’s present in the Mondeo sedan. In this guise, the hybrid generates 304 combined horsepower, which flows to the front wheels via a CVT gearbox.

The newly renamed Ford Mondeo Sport joins an ever-evolving Blue Oval lineup in China, which has recently seen the launch of the domestically-produced Ford Bronco and Ford Ranger, as well as the refreshed Equator and Equator Sport, both of which can now be had with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

    Why isn’t this model available in Europe?
    Because Ford is run by idiots.
