The automotive world is abuzz with the electrifying news of the Ford Capri’s triumphant return. This time, the legend is back with a twist, as an all-electric vehicle. The unveiling of the Capri EV marks a significant milestone in Ford’s journey towards sustainable mobility.

 

The Capri, a beloved nameplate, has been reimagined for the modern era. This £42,000 electric SUV is a far cry from its predecessor, yet it retains the charm that made the original Capri a cult classic. 

 

The new Ford Capri is a modern interpretation of the classic Capri from the '70s and '80s. It features a unique LED headlight design that resembles the later Capris. The car’s profile includes a distinctive curved trailing edge of the rear window, a hallmark of '70s Capris.

The cabin design is similar to the recently launched Ford Explorer EV. It includes a large, portrait infotainment system, a small driver’s pod with a screen showing key driving information, and a sizeable 17-litre ‘MegaConsole’ storage box between the front seats.

The Capri EV is powered by a 335 hp AWD powertrain. It can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 5.3 seconds. There are also versions with a single-motor rear-wheel drive that gets a 77kWh battery and 390 miles of possible range. It supports fast charging, allowing it to charge from 10% to 80% in around 26 minutes.

Football legend Eric Cantona played a pivotal role in the Capri’s grand reveal. Known for his charisma and flair, Cantona was the perfect choice to introduce this revolutionary vehicle to the world. His involvement in the campaign underscores the Capri’s blend of tradition and modernity.

 

 

The Capri EV is more than just a nod to the past. It’s a fully-equipped electric vehicle designed for the future, boasting advanced safety features, such as automated lane changes and cyclist detection.
