Ford’s Expansion in the European EV Market With the increasing demand for electric vehicles in the European market, Ford is looking to strengthen its position in the region by introducing new Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs). After the successful launch of the all-new Explorer e-SUV, Ford is now planning to introduce a new Capri crossover EV based on Volkswagen’s MEB platform.
The All-New Ford Capri:
Design and Features The upcoming Ford Capri EV is expected to retain a few design cues from the iconic Capri model from the late 1960s, while also following Ford’s modern design philosophy. The crossover is expected to feature swept-back LED headlights, a sculpted hood, a raked windscreen, blacked-out B-pillars, and wheels with designer aerodynamic covers. The rear end of the EV is expected to get LED taillamps and a roof-mounted spoiler.
Interior and Safety Features of the Ford Capri EV
The interiors of the all-new Ford Capri EV are still under wraps. However, it is expected to feature a spacious cabin with a minimalist dashboard design, premium upholstery made with sustainable materials, a multifunctional steering wheel, and the brand’s SYNC infotainment system with the latest connectivity options. For the safety of passengers, the EV is expected to come equipped with multiple airbags and ADAS functions.
Powertrain Options for the Upcoming Ford Capri EV
The technical details of the upcoming Ford Capri EV are yet to be disclosed by the carmaker. However, we expect the crossover to draw power from a single-motor or a dual-motor setup linked to either 58kWh or 77kWh battery packs from Volkswagen’s ID range of vehicles.
Expected Pricing and Competition
While the details of the upcoming Ford Capri EV are still in the early design phase, it is expected to compete in the mid-size premium segment. When launched, the all-new EV is expected to undercut the Volkswagen ID.4, which starts at £38,845 (approximately Rs. 39.11 lakh) in the UK.
