Ford has announced that its second electric mode produced at its revamped Cologne plant in Germany will be revealed on July 10. Automotive News Europe reports that this model will have a coupe silhouette, which is believed to be the new all electric Ford Capri.

After it was spotted testing last year, the Capri EV appears much like many MEB-based vehicles with a long wheelbase and wide stance. You can see a resemblance to the Cupra Tavascan, another electric SUV based on VW’s MEB platform.

As the report notes, the Capri and Explorer EVs will be similar to VW’s ID.4 and ID.5. With a new battery, the electric Explorer features up to 374 miles (600 km) range.

Ford's new sports crossover will be built in the Cologne plant on the same line as the Explorer. Production will be between one third and two thirds of that of the more traditional Explorer, Ford indicated to journalists during a recent factory visit.

Prototypes were visible on the production line and the Blue Oval has the potential to build 250,000 units per year of both cars in three shifts.

The price is not known, but according to Automotive News Europe estimates it could be around £36,000.
