Ford has pulled some controversial aces up its sleeve these past few years. For instance, it dropped its traditional passenger cars from North America. Moreover, it also revived the Puma nameplate only to use it on a small crossover sold overseas.
One of the most controversial moves was using the Mustang moniker on an electric vehicle that adds the Mach-E suffix and has nothing to do with the iconic pony car. And since the Blue Oval has started thinking too much outside the box, it likely won't stop here.

As you have likely heard, Ford is supposedly gearing up to introduce a brand-new Capri. Petrolheads remember the nameplate as it was used on some of the brand's sports cars between the 1960s and 1980s overseas, and some fans will tell you that roughly 1.8 million units were made.

Thus, it would make a lot of sense to have a brand-new Capri in its lineup, but it won't be that sporty. In fact, it looks like it won't even feature a combustion engine. Reports speak of a Ford Capri revival, and the model is expected to be an electric crossover that will allegedly join the Ford Explorer EV's assembly line in Cologne, Germany, which is where the Fiesta used to come to life.

Are you curious about the underpinnings? Well, it looks like Ford will further cash in on its partnership with Volkswagen, as the MEB platform might be its foundation stone. Thus, the next-gen Capri, if everything goes as planned, will share its nuts and bolts with VW's ID. family, the Audi Q4 e-tron, Cupra's Tavascan and Born, the Skoda Enyaq, and, of course, the Ford Explorer EV.

As a result, it will have access to multiple powertrains and battery packs, and we have yet to learn if it will launch with single-motor setups or if dual-motor assemblies will join the party. Truth be told, we don’t really know anything else about the upcoming Ford Capri (model unconfirmed) other than that it might be due as early as next month.

A recent report states that the Blue Oval might unveil it on July 10, and the event might be hosted at the Cologne facility in Germany. You know, the same factory that will supposedly be responsible with its assembly.

Now, while we may not know much about the alleged brand-new Ford Capri electric crossover coupe (yep, it will apparently have a sloping roofline), the rendering world has become fond of it. Thus, we already saw a few unofficial digital illustrations trying to imagine its design, and the latest came from lars_o_saeltzer on Instagram. The CGIs are similar to those shared by Kolesa recently, and they could be on to something. So, do you like the looks?
