2025 Ford Capri revealed as an electric four-door take on the iconic coupe

First it was the Puma and Mustang names that Ford slapped on some new-generation SUVs, and now there’s this: the famous Ford Capri badge, revived on a jacked-up four-door coupe.

It’s back. After a few weeks of mysterious teasers that really left very little mystery to wonder at, the all-electric 2025 Ford Capri has been unveiled.

While clearly no coupe in the traditional sense, the new Capri does at least take a couple of obvious design cues from its namesake, such as the ovoid rear quarter window and quad lighting at both ends – although rectangular Hella headlamps were also used with the MkII.

As expected, the new 2025 Ford Capri is built on the same Volkswagen MEB ‘toolkit’ used with the new Europe-only and wagon-shaped Ford Explorer, riding on the same 2770mm wheelbase but with a longer overall length at 4634mm – compared to 4460mm for the Explorer.

As a point of comparison, the 2025 Ford Capri’s wheelbase and overall length are similar to the Polestar 2, which lists 2735mm and 4606mm respectively.

And, before we continue, a little localised clarity up front: like the new Explorer, the new Ford Capri is only intended to be offered in Europe.

Driving configuration & power

Weighing in at between 2098kg and 2190kg depending on the specification and trim grade, the new Ford Capri will be offered with two power and driving options.

First is the single-motor 210kW/545Nm rear-wheel-drive Capri, followed by the more powerful 340kW dual-motor all-wheel-drive model – the latter with 545Nm of torque at the rear and an additional 134Nm at the front.

Batteries & charging

For now, Ford has described only Extended Range forms of the Capri, with a 77kWh (usable capacity) battery pack in the RWD model and 79kWh (usable) in the AWD. Both use a Lithium-ion NMC chemistry.

The new Ford Capri can accept up to 185kW of DC fast charging for the AWD, and 135kW for the RWD.

For the Extended Range RWD model, Ford claims a 10-80% DC charging time of approximately 28 minutes, while the Extended Range AWD shaves that slightly to 26 minutes.

Driving range (WLTP)

With those systems, Ford claims a WLTP-tested driving range of 627km for the Capri RWD, 598km for the Capri Premium RWD, 592km for the Capri AWD and 560km for the Capri Premium AWD.

Efficiency is listed at 13.3kWh/14.0kWh for the Capri RWD and Capri Premium RWD respectively, and 15.0kWh/15.8kWh for the Capri AWD & Capri Premium AWD.

Performance

Regardless of trim grade, the new Ford Capri claims a 0-100km/h time of 6.4 seconds in RWD form and 5.3 seconds with the extra power and traction of the AWD option.

Storage & towing

With the rear seats upright, the Capri lists 627 litres of boot space for the Capri and Capri Premium respectively, regardless of drive configuration.

Lowering the rear seats increases this space to 572/567 litres respectively. Seats-up figures are measured as “laden to the roof”, and seats down figure are measured as “laden to seat back height without load floor”. As a liftback ‘sedan’, the Capri also gets 60:40 split-folding rear seats.

No front-end ‘frunk’ storage is offered.

Towing is rated at 1000kg braked and 1200kg braked for the RWD and AWD models respectively, and 750kg unbraked for both.
