Ford Iosis Max Concept revealed at Geneva

Ford Iosis Max Concept revealed at Geneva



Ford will unveil a head-turning concept car at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, to express the design direction for its next generation of global C-cars.

The iosis MAX features striking exterior and interior treatment based on a fresh interpretation of Fordís kinetic design form language. It is a dynamic Multi Activity Vehicle (MAV) and showcases new levels of efficiency and flexibility.  iosis MAX  showcases new door opening concepts, lightweight materials, advanced aerodynamics, and a preview of the European development of Ford's global EcoBoost petrol engine technology coming in 2010.

 ďThe iosis MAX marks the next stage in the evolution of kinetic design, and showcases a number of affordable engine technologies that will make a difference to the environment and our customersí pockets,Ē says Martin Smith, Ford of Europeís Executive Design Director.

The innovation featured in the iosis MAX extends to its powertrain, which showcases efficient technologies coming in future Ford vehicles to demonstrate how reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions can be achieved without compromising dynamic performance.

Power is provided by a 1.6-litre 180PS four-cylinder petrol engine from Fordís new EcoBoost engine family. Ford EcoBoost engines feature turbocharging and direct injection technology to deliver fuel economy up to 20 per cent better than conventional petrol engines with a similar power output.   The 1.6-litre EcoBoost unit in the iosis MAX is further optimised through the use of a new Ford Auto-Start-Stop system, intelligent alternator and six-speed Ford PowerShift double-clutch automated manual gearbox with ratios tailored to deliver maximum fuel efficiency. Simulations predict that the concept vehicle could achieve CO2 emissions
of 125g/km.

The next 18 months will see some exciting new models with clean and affordable technologies arriving in the Ford of Europe range.  EcoBoost engines will be progressively introduced to Fordís European product range from early 2010.
