Ford Motor is all set drive in a new electric SUV for global markets which will be inspired by its iconic model Capri, popular during the 1970s and 80s. The upcoming electric vehicle, which will be a coupe SUV, is going to be based on the US-based carmaker's Explorer EV. The Detroit auto giant had earlier confirmed that the Capri moniker will be revived after nearly 40 years in a new avatar. The carmaker has released the first official teaser images of the upcoming EV showing how different it is going to be from its iconic past.

The first teaser images of the Ford Capri electric SUV does not offer any look at how the shape of the iconic pony has changed after its rebirth. However, the images offer a clear look at some of its modern design elements such as DRL headlight units and LED taillights which reminds of the light pattern seen on the iconic avatar of the car.

The platform also underpins other electric cars like the Volkswagen ID.4, the India-bound Skoda Enyaq, Audi Q4 e-tron and the recently launched Ford Explorer SUV.
