Ford to support long-distance travel by offering smooth access to the Electrify America network.
Ford officially announced an agreement with Electrify America to provide access to ultra-fast charging for its upcoming next-generation BEVs from 2020.
As the all-new, all-electric Mustang-inspired SUV will be capable of charging at up to around 150 kW, the 150-350 kW CCS Combo chargers at Electrify America stations will come in really handy for long-distance travel. At 150 kW, range will be replenished by up to 47 miles in 10 minutes
By December 2021, Electrify America intends to install:
There are no pricing details yet (we expect some discount compared to a regular EA offer), but all the Electrify America stations to be listed in FordPass app and vehicle’s touch screen:
“Customers will be able to manage their charging plan through features of the company’s FordPass app, as well as through their vehicle’s touch screen, that will be supported by a comprehensive data feed from Electrify America. The FordPass app will provide real time location and charger status data to Ford EV drivers for Electrify America’s network of ultra-fast EV public chargers across highway and metro charging stations planned in 45 states and the District of Columbia.”
Giovanni Palazzo, president and CEO of Electrify America said:
“Electrify America is proud to provide Ford customers with access to our nationwide network of ultra-fast public chargers. We are committed to advancing the adoption of electric vehicles, and value forward-thinking collaborations with automakers like Ford, that share a similar vision.”
