(autoinsidernews) - Ford of Europe unveiled the 2007 iosis X concept earlier this week at the Paris Motor Show. The iosis X crossover concept continues the kinetic design' language first seen on the iosis concept that was revealed last year, reports Trend.
We're calling this car iosis X as a deliberate link to our kinetic design' concept car lineage started last year, said Martin Smith, Ford of Europe's Executive Design Director. The link is not just in the name there's a strong visual relationship
between the two cars, and the X' signals the new vehicle's crossover capabilities.
The iosis X is an exciting five-door sports-crossover that proves we can extend the boundaries of kinetic design into a niche market vehicle, added Smith. It takes our energy in motion' philosophy even further and shows how different Ford cars will be in the future.
While Ford is does not intend for the iosis X to be completely representative of a future production model, the automaker has said that the concept was designed to prepare the public for a future Ford of Europe niche model.
Clearly Ford of Europe is sending a message that the automaker will be entering the growing European crossover segment with a dramatically styled crossover in the next few years, just like the original iosis concept foreshadowed the new 2007 Ford Mondeo.
