Dearborn, Mich. - Ford
announced that its Evos Concept car will make its first appearance in North
America as the centerpiece of the manufacturer's display at the 2012

integrates technology in a holistic way meant to enrich the driving experience,
Ford said. It exchanges data with the Cloud, delivers info vehicle to vehicle,
and includes heart-rate monitoring seats.

to understand driver behavior and travel patterns in order to make predictions
about destinations and to adjust the control strategies for the lithium-ion
plug-in-hybrid powertrain, Ford said.
where the driver is likely to go, Evos can intelligently switch between running
on battery or engine power in order to use the least amount of energy for any
situation," it noted.
The car made its global
debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
