This is how we’re making charging your car stress-free

October 20, 2019

One of the biggest questions for drivers thinking of buying an electric vehicle is: will I be able to charge quickly and conveniently?

Using our new ecosystem of integrated charging solutions, the answer is: yes.

First, there’s our Ford Connected Wallbox that will make charging at home as easy as plugging in a smartphone. Delivering up to five times the charging power of a typical domestic socket, it means you can be sure your Ford electric vehicle will fully recharge overnight.

Then, away from home, we’re helping to establish a network of 400 high-power-charging stations in key European locations by end of 2020, as part of the IONITY consortium. Using an IONITY charger, drivers of our Mustang-inspired all-electric performance SUV that is coming next year will reach a driving range of up to 93 km (57 miles) within 10 minutes of charge time.

And customers will also be able to use our FordPass app to locate, navigate to, pay for and monitor charging at more than 125,000 locations in 21 countries across Europe.

The app will feature Power My Trip: a route planner that identifies the right charging points along a route to make your trip as efficient as possible. By identifying nearby points-of-interest, it will also help you make the most of your time while your vehicle is powering up.

You’ll even be able to create itineraries from the comfort of home, the office or coffee shop, and push them to your electric vehicle over-the-air, using the connectivity of our FordPass Connect on-board modem.

So you can simply get in and set off on your chosen route, without worrying about your battery levels.
