Ford C-Max Solar Energi concept
The 2014 International CES is underway, which means that technology fans are being bombarded with news about state-of-the-art devices and witnessing ideas in action that seemed impossible to produce only a few years ago. Ford is hoping to be one of the companies that people are talking about across the globe by the time the event draws to a close on January 10th, the American car giant is using the tradeshow in Las Vegas to unveil its C-Max Solar Energi Concept car. Aiming to revolutionise how motorists approach greener motoring, Ford has stated in a press release that the prototype vehicle has “the potential to deliver the best of what a plug-in hybrid offers – without depending on the electric grid for fuel”. This is not the first time Ford has attempted to turn what we know about the motoring industry on its head, though. Here are a couple of other famous concept cars that the US car manufacturer has shown off over the years:
New Ford S-Max concept
Ford used last year’s IFA tradeshow in Berlin to reveal what it hopes to be the next iteration in the Ford S-Max family. While looking stylish on the outside, the main talking point was how technology packed into the vehicle is able to monitor everything from real-time road accidents in the area to how high or low a driver’s blood pressure was. Until the all-seeing S-Max reaches the market though, you can rest assured that the current generation of Ford S-Max cars are packed with handy gadgets designed to help you stay safe on the road. Motorparks is even offering these vehicles at reduced prices at the moment.
Ford Mustang 1 concept
The 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang’s launch is fast approaching, with the original model first hitting the road on April 17th 1964. What better way to mark the occasion than by watching this YouTube video from FordMustang, which gives you an insight into how the vehicle looked in its very early stages. You can instantly see the sporty pedigree that the Mustang is so renowned for, from the prototype’s angled nose and soft-top, to the rear wheels being accompanied by large vents. Many of these features can still be seen on the Mustangs just hitting the market today, whether you are looking at the updated 2013 Ford Mustang V6, with its stylish soft-top roof, or the 2013 GT California Special and its elevated nose.
We say keep up the great work, Ford. We like what you’re doing and can’t wait to see what 2014 and beyond has in store for us mere drivers.
