Volkswagen Will Revive Legendary Ford Capri As Electric SUV

Expect performance and range similar to that of the Volkswagen ID.3, which is not sold in the USA because anything smaller than the ID.4 is too dinky.

It will be interesting to see how long this Ford and Volkswagen partnership lasts. The two automakers joined forces years ago to develop the next-generation Ranger and Amarok. The partnership then extended to Ford being allowed to use the MEB platform, but would VW allow the American automaker access to its next-generation SSP platform?

The new architecture, expected to debut in 2026, can offer up to 1,700 horsepower, and loads of grunt would be fitting for something wearing a Capri badge. Alas, the electric crossover Capri is expected to debut in 2024 with the same powertrain options as the Euro-spec Explorer. That means 168 hp at the least and 335 hp at the most.
