World Report 9/2: Ford's Evos Concept Speaks To The Cloud And More

Welcome to TRANSLOGIC World Report: Your weekly roundup of transportation tech news from around the web.

Ford Evos Concept
Ford unveiled the plug-in hybrid Evos concept yesterday in Berlin, just ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show. Evos represents an evolved design language for Ford, which will begin to influence production-bound models within the next few months.

Perhaps even more exciting that the concept's Aston-like good looks are its integrated technology features. With Evos, Ford imagines a world where our cars can communicate with the cloud in order to add greater connectivity and convenience to our lives. For instance, wouldn't it be nice if your car could wirelessly sync with your alarm clock and decide when to wake you for your morning commute based on local traffic data? This is just one such example that Ford provides for how Evos could seamlessly integrate into your life beyond the driving experience.

Oh, and did we mention it has gullwing doors? Sign us up.

Elon Musk Tesla Motors

Despite posting a company high $58 million in Q2 revenue, Tesla Motors suffered a sharp selloff in stock Wednesday, due to losses totaling $58.9 million over the same period. You don't have to be a mathlete to figure out why Wall Street responded negatively to the earnings report. That said, there may be more to the story than just profits and losses. Tesla points to substantial investment in new models as they phase out their electric roadster, and asks for patience from investors. [AUTOBLOG GREEN]
