Ford Partners With Reston’s Electrify America For Electric Vehicle Charging Network

Recently, Ford has partnered with two companies to build electric vehicle charging networks for its own FordPass. FordPass is a seamless network of EV charging stations that Ford owners will have app-based access to. Currently, Ford is working on its first two all-electric vehicles. One of them is a Mustang-inspired crossover SUV and the other is an electric version of its popular F-150 pickup truck.

The FordPass app can monitor a vehicle’s current state of charge and, based on long-distance trip plans entered by the owner, plan out efficient station to station routes.

According to wtop.com, “Reston-based Electrify America, whose coast-to-coast network already includes more than 120 ultrafast charging stations at Walmart stores in 34 states, will support the FordPass app with a comprehensive data feed that will show real-time locations and charger status data to Ford vehicles’ touch screens. The app can also monitor a vehicle’s current state of charge and, based on long-distance trip plans entered by the owner, plan out efficient station-to-station routes.”

Ted Cannis, Ford’s director of global electrification said, “Among people who already own or want to purchase electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids, 48% say that a lack of charging stations is one of their main concerns. By offering industry-leading charging access we are dismantling those barriers.”

As per wtop.com, “Ford is investing $11.5 billion in electrified vehicles through 2022. The electric SUV will come out in late-2020. The electric pickup may come to market as early as 2021. In addition to Greenlots and Electrify America, other companies building out charging networks are expected to join the FordPass network.”
