Ford Lays out Extensive EV Charging Plans

Ford has announced plans for what the automaker says will be North America’s largest electric vehicle (EV) public charging network, with more than 12,000 places to charge, including fast charging, and more than 35,000 charge plugs.

Ford is providing two years of complimentary access to the FordPass Charging Network (starting with an original vehicle sales date). The company is working with Greenlots to bring together multiple charging providers to develop the network.

In collaboration with Electrify America, the FordPass Charging Network will provide access to DC fast chargers. At a 150 kW charger, customers can add an estimated 47 miles of range in 10 minutes. For longer trips, customers can charge their battery from 10% to 80% in 45 minutes using an Electrify America DC fast charger.
