Ford Looking To Secure Mondeo Evos Moniker, Should We Expect A New Model?

Ford’s constant lineup reshuffling will give birth to a number of new vehicles, with electrification being at the top of their agenda.

One model that seems doomed, though, is America’s Fusion (aka Mondeo in other parts of the world), which is tipped to leave for good next year as part of the automaker’s plans to phase out sedans across the continent.

However, there may be some good news for those living outside the New World, as FordAuthority discovered that the Blue Oval filed trademark applications for the Mondeo Evos moniker in Europe (UK), Australia and New Zealand on August 15.

The trademark, according to the filing, can be used for “motor land vehicles and electric vehicles, and parts and fittings and accessories therefor”. Does this mean that the Mondeo will continue to live on in other parts of the world for one more generation? That’s a tricky one, as it could also signal the arrival of a new crossover of some sorts, or perhaps a different model. Or, as is often the case, maybe they secured the name so that no one else could use it.

Interestingly, Ford used the Evos moniker on a concept car eight years ago. Presented at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, it previewed the company’s new global design language. It had a two-door coupe body style, gullwing doors and a minimalistic interior layout, with sports seats at the front and a couple of individual seats at the back.

    they mentioned earlier that the fusion would live on as a Subaru outback lookalike, maybe that’s it’s international version of it!

    I’d be happier if it looked like this 2 door version.
