“The Legend is Back” hier een voorproefje van de geheel elektrische Ford Capri die morgen zijn debuut maakt! Incl. Video

Oef….dat was even schrikken.

Jammer dat Ford oude types en dus handelsmerken nieuw leven in blaast, net als destijds met de Mustang Mach-E waar de Amerikaanse fans min of meer ‘woedend’ op reageerden bij het zien van de Mach E. Het had in hun ogen niets te maken met de Mustang? Ditzelfde overkomt ons bij het zien van de nieuwe Ford Capri, alleen de naam herinnert ons aan een mooie tijd, van een vroegere icoon, wat dat was de Capri absoluut!

Of de nieuwe Ford Capri in Europa en in ons land goed in de markt zal liggen is nog maar de vraag, we gaan het meemaken.

For years now, we’ve known that Ford intends to sell two all-electric crossovers in Europe underpinned by Volkswagen’s MEB platform, one of which is the all-new Ford Explorer EV. However, while the Explorer EV is already in production, the second, “sport crossover” model has yet to be revealed, though the automaker has been ramping up its teasers as of late, giving us a sneak preview as to what we can expect. Now, the latest such teaser seems to once again confirm that this future model will indeed be called the Ford Capri EV, and it does so in a humorous way.

Recently posted to X, this short video shows a man at an EV charging station in his vintage Capri, which he then attempts to charge. Of course, this isn’t possible given the fact that this is an older ICE model, but the writing is quite literally on the wall – er, car, as well as the ground underneath it. On the rear glass, we can see script reading “The Legend Is Back 10.07.24,” signaling that we can in fact expect to see the new Ford Capri EV in its entirety in just a couple of days – on July 10th.

Rumors that Ford intended to revive the Capri name first surfaced back in March of last year, which would be just the latest example of the automaker applying a well-known nameplate to a new model. Then, that rumor was seemingly confirmed late last month via another teaser, which also included a couple of closeup images of the all-electric crossover.

With Ford’s goal of electrifying its entire European lineup by 2030 now history – and the automaker planning to continue to sell gas and hybrid vehicles there for the foreseeable future – it’s unclear if the Explorer EV and Capri EV will be joined by any other pure electric models anytime soon, however.
