In the US, Ford has already abandoned the Fusion, and production of Mondeo for the EU will stop next spring, but the company is in no hurry to leave the sedan market completely. This is confirmed by fresh pictures from tests made by our spies in Europe.
The camouflaged prototype on them is presumably related to the new Chinese model Ford Evos, however it is longer and lower, and in profile looks more like a classic three-box sedan than a cross-coupe.
The easiest way to see the similarities with the “Evos” is from the front: through the camouflage of the new test car, the front panel with narrow headlights, a massive radiator grille and a wide slot in the lower part shows through. The feed is camouflaged especially reliably, but the lanterns in the corners are visible. There are no visible exhaust pipes, but this is not an EV. According to rumors, the power plant will be hybrid, with the possibility of charging from the mains.
The renders presented in the gallery below are an attempt to virtually strip the new Ford prototype using spy shots and official images of the aforementioned Evos.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Evos may donate another model to be sold in Europe. Allegedly, the “Chinese” will share its very wide display with a new electric crossover, which Ford will produce from 2023 in Cologne, using Volkswagen’s MEB modular platform.
By the way, it is from the Chinese market that Ford Mondeo has not yet left: the sedan is available there with gasoline engines of 180 and 200 hp. In the latest update, it was equipped with the Sync4 infotainment complex with a 12.8-inch vertical display.
