2009 Ford iosisMAX

Ford revealed at the Geneva Motor Show the iosis MAX concept a concept study for the next generation of Ford’s compact multi-activity vehicle (MAV) as well as a glimpse for the company’s next generation global C-car family.

The iosisMAX concept features striking exterior and interior designs based on a fresh interpretation of Ford’s kinetic design form language, new door opening concepts, lightweight materials, advanced aerodynamics, and a preview of the European development of Ford’s global EcoBoost petrol engine technology coming in 2010.

The iosisMAX is powered by a 1.6-litre 180 PS 4-cylinder petrol engine from Ford’s new EcoBoost engine family. Ford EcoBoost engines feature turbocharging and direct injection technology to deliver fuel economy up to 20% better than conventional petrol engines with a similar power output. The 1.6-litre EcoBoost unit in the iosis MAX is further optimized through the use of a new Ford Auto-Start-Stop system, intelligent alternator and six-speed Ford PowerShift double-clutch automated manual gearbox with ratios tailored to deliver maximum fuel efficiency. Simulations predict that the concept vehicle could achieve CO2 emissions of 125 g/km.
