News Ford Trademarks Evos – the Edge’s Electric Successor?

Ford Trademarks Evos – the Edge’s Electric Successor?

The Evos could be the next all-electric SUV to come from Ford in the near future

  • The Edge and Lincoln Nautilus are out by 2023.

  • Ford is not abandoning the midsize SUV segment.

  • The Evos is offered in China only at the moment.

If the name Ford Evos sounds familiar, that’s because the Blue Oval did launch the model at the Shanghai Motor Show last April. Ford has since mentioned that the Evos is a China-only vehicle however, as we said and know, plans can change. Just recently, Ford trademarked the name with the Instituto Mexicano De La Propiedad Industrial (IMPI).

Ford Evos Looks Like a Great Fusion Replacement, But Will it Be?

The motivations behind the speculations involve the known death of the Ford Edge and the fact that Ford is going all-in on EVs in the near future. The midsize SUV segment is bursting at the seams with relevant and interesting vehicles, and the Edge isn’t performing anywhere near as well as it should. This might be an opportunity for Ford to wipe the slate clean, retire the Edge name and return better, stronger, and all-electric.

It was CarBuzz that reported on the trademark filing. For all the right reasons, the Evos, as presented in Shanghai, looks perfect as a new midsize SUV to squeeze in between the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the upcoming all-electric Explorer.
