Recent sightings have revealed Ford’s progress on its latest electric offering, a compact crossover developed using Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform.
This new model sports a sleek, coupe-like design and is anticipated to revive the iconic Capri name, historically associated with a four-seater coupe catering to European customers. The Capri also had a brief stint in the U.S. under the Mercury brand.

The contemporary Capri iteration is poised to appeal primarily to the European audience, much like Ford’s earlier MEB-based model, the Europe-focused Explorer compact crossover introduced in March. This collaboration with VW Group stems from a 2019 agreement.
A teaser released in March unveils the Capri’s sporty crossover stance, positioned alongside the Euro-spec Explorer. The teaser suggests a size close to the Euro-spec Explorer, which is slightly smaller than the conventional Escape compact crossover.
Ford’s EV Lineup on MEB Platform Expected by 2024
The teaser also highlights the distinctive LED daytime running lights visible on the prototype.
The Capri’s powertrains are likely to mirror those of the Euro-spec Explorer, potentially offering battery options of 55- and 82-kWh and motor configurations ranging from rear-wheel to dual-motor systems. These could deliver power from approximately 168 hp to 335 hp.
The vehicle’s debut is anticipated towards the end of 2024 or early the subsequent year.
Manufacturing is expected to occur at Ford’s facility in Cologne, Germany, coinciding with the production start of the Euro-spec Explorer in 2024. Current plans do not include bringing these electric Ford models to the U.S. market.
