2011 Ford Evos Concept

The Ford Evos Concept is a concept vehicle from Ford Motor Company’s namesake Ford division. It served as a preview of Ford’s next generation exterior design called Kinetic 2.0 and was introduced by Ford at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.


The Ford Evos concept featured two-piece gullwing doors in the front and rear. Thin headlights defined the front-end, making it rather aggressive while also being refined.

Production Intent

The introduction of the Ford Evos concept raised spurred rumors that Ford was planning to introduce a new two-door coupe, especially for the European market. The last coupe Ford had in Europe was the Cougar, and that model was rather was unceremoniously discontinued.

Years later, it was understood that Ford had no intention of bringing the Evos concept to production as a real-world vehicle. Instead, the automaker used the Evos Concept to debut Ford’s ‘Kinetic 2.0’ design language – the new corporate design aesthetic that was applied to all of the Blue Oval’s next generation models.
