Ford unveils new iosis Max in Geneva
Another motoring story from Auto Windscreens
Ford has introduced a new concept car at the Geneva Motor Show which has turned the windscreen into a design feature.
The iosis Max is touted as the benchmark for the global C-cars of the future and boasts a radical exterior complete with elongated windscreen.
Extending as far back as the tailgate and offering a glimpse of the underlying roof structure, the windscreen has been used as part of a conscious effort to promote a feeling of lightness when drivers step inside the vehicle.
"The iosis Max marks the next stage in the evolution of kinetic design," commented Martin Smith, Ford of Europe's Executive Design Director.
"It proves that cars in the compact MAV class can have emotive, dynamic styling without sacrificing their traditional virtues of practicality or efficiency."
Other features of the iosis Max include a version of Ford's forthcoming global EcoBoost petrol engine technology, Ford PowerShift transmission and a new Ford Auto-Start-Stop system due for release in 2010.
It is important that drivers keep their windscreen wash bottles topped up, as failure to do so can lead to a fine and three licence points.
