Ford has announced plans to provide their customers access to more public charging stations throughout North America, paving the way for both Canadian and American drivers to seriously consider electrified vehicles a viable option.

“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,” said Ted Cannis, Ford director of global electrification. “By offering industry-leading charging access we are dismantling those barriers, allowing more customers to confidently enjoy the benefits of owning an electric vehicle.”

Ford is working with Greenlots to bring together multiple charging providers to develop the FordPass Charging Network, making it easy for Canadian customers to find a charging station. Ford says they will work with Greenlots to “explore adding additional networks to the FordPass Charging Network in the future for even further coverage.”

In collaboration with Electrify America, the FordPass Charging Network will provide access to DC fast chargers. At a 150-kilowatt charger, for example, Canadians traveling through the United States can add an estimated 75 kilometres of range in 10 minutes.
