Ford's new sport crossover for Europe will be built on VW's MEB platform.

"This "Medium-Size Crossover" will slot above an all-electric version of the Puma subcompact crossover the Blue Oval intends to make in Romania and have on sale in 2024. The Dearborn-based marque has also promised a "Sport Crossover" positioned between the model teased here and the already available Mustang Mach-E. Coming in 2024 from the same German factory, that will also sit on the MEB architecture and might be Ford's equivalent of the VW ID.5. Consequently, expect a slightly lowered SUV with a swoopy roofline.

From what we can see so far, Ford's upcoming EV will have more rugged styling than the VW ID.4. It appears to have a boxy design whereas Wolfsburg's electric crossover has a bulbous shape. Judging by the teaser image, the design team has done its job to give the electric SUV a distinct visual identity.

The "Medium-Size Crossover" has been confirmed to offer 311 miles (500 kilometers) of range on a single charge, presumably in the WLTP cycle. As for the "Sport Crossover," it could get the dual-motor setup of the ID.5 GTX with around 300 horsepower. The tie-up between the two refers to a combined volume of 1.2 million vehicles for the two models in a six-year timeframe."
