Ford Evos first test drive: Sleek and tech-savvy bet for China’s market

By Mark Andrews

Car News China.

Ford has never quite got it right in China. While not as bad as Chrysler, a company that has now withdrawn from the market after the cessation of local Jeep production, Ford has always lagged GM, and by some margin.

Probably the biggest reason has been the product mix. Ford Motor Group hopes to turn its fortunes around with three new cars designed especially for China and all based on the same platform. We drove the first of these, the Ford Evos, to see if it has what it takes. With sales in China peaking at 951,396 back in 2016 before plummeting all the way down to 232,555 in 2019 Ford certainly needs this car to be a success. Since 2019 sales have stabilized and moderately increased but Ford needs some winners.
