While the new Capri bears little resemblance to its two-door predecessor, Ford claims it possess design elements that nod to the original, particularly in its fastback rear end and light cluster design. The color palette is also said to be inspired by classic Capri options.

The Capri EV is Ford’s second EV based on Volkswagen’s MEB platform. According to Ford, the all-wheel-drive (AWD) model delivers 335 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds. The Extended Range RWD trim delivers up to 627 km (390 miles) of estimated range, while the AWD trim provides 592 km (368 miles). Regarding its charging capabilities, it can charge from 10% to 80% in around 26 to 28 minutes using fast charging.

For the exterior design, it is designed to “inject some soul into the world of EVs” according to Ford. The Capri EV features a coupe-like roofline and design components that pay tribute to its predecessor including signature four headlamps connected by a black horizontal grille. As for the EV’s dimensions, it comes 4,634 mm long, 2,063 mm wide, and 1,626 mm tall according to Ford, which places it between the Ford Explorer EV and the Mustang Mach-E in size.

The Capri will be available in two trims: Capri and Capri Premium, with the latter featuring the more powerful AWD drivetrain and additional features like matrix LED headlights and an upgraded B&O sound system.

The Capri EV also offers up to 570 liters of luggage space, expandable to 1,510 liters with the rear seats folded.

Moreover, Ford has provided the Capri EV with advanced driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, lane assist, and evasive steering assist. There are also optional upgrades including a 360-degree surround view system and a head-up display.

The production of the Capri EV will take place at Ford’s newly upgraded Cologne EV plant in Germany, which saw a $2 billion investment to prepare for EV production. As of now, pricing information has only been made public on the base rear-wheel drive (RWD) model starting at €51,950 ($56,219) in Europe.
