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 International CES.
CES will be held in Las Vegas Jan. 10-13, 2012.
The Evos Concept 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.
Evos also uses the Cloud 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.
"Through understanding 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.
