Plugging your hybrid or electric vehicle in at home is a simple and effective way to ensure it’s ready to go when you need it. Simply connect your vehicle to a standard domestic socket and leave it to charge. This isn’t the fastest way to charge the battery because of the limited power availability from household sockets. However, it doesn’t require the need for additional hardware and therefore represents a cost-effective and highly accessible method of recharging your plug-in vehicle.
Public & Destination Charging
Across the range of our all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle portfolio, we will provide public charging cables either as standard or as an accessory depending on the model that's right for you. This gives you the power to charge your Ford vehicle at any of the 100,000+ (and growing!) charge points across Europe - so you can be sure we've got you covered.
Faster Home Charging
Want to make charging your all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle at home as fast as possible? The range of Ford wallboxes can assist. With the help of one of our expert partners, we can help you arrange the installation of a higher power wallbox at home. Ford’s Wallboxes offer faster charging times versus charging via conventional plug sockets, getting your all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle back on the road as soon as you need it.
Public & Destination Charging: IONITY
Ford is also one of the founders of one of Europe’s fastest growing Charging networks: IONITY. IONITY will offer All-Electric Ford drivers market leading Charging speeds at a discounted price. In May 2019, IONITY proudly announced the opening of its 100th high powered Charging sites in Europe, marking a big step towards fulfilling the objective of opening 400 IONITY high-powered sites across Europe by the end of 2020.
Charging made easy
With the FordPass App on your phone, you’ll never have to worry about whether your electric vehicle is charged or not. Simply open the FordPass app to check the state of your electric battery and whether it needs Charging before your next journey.
We’re also working in partnership with NewMotion, who are building Europe’s largest public Charging network. This partnership allows you, through your smartphone, to find out where the nearest public Charging points are, how to get there and how much it will cost to fully charge your Plug-in Hybrid or electric car or van. On your All-Electric Ford vehicle you can also find out which public charge points fall on your scheduled journey – meaning you can charge your electric vehicle on-the-go without compromising your current route.
IONITY: Going The Distance
The electric revolution isn't just about vehicle technology. We're also investing in the infrastructure that powers longer distance journeys. IONITY is a joint venture between Ford, BMW Group, Daimler and the Volkswagen Group. Together, we're building a reliable, high-powered fast Charging network across Europe to help you make longer journeys with less time spent Charging.
Charging the battery
You can keep your electric vehicle charged in a variety of ways, from advanced self-Charging technology to plugging into your domestic power sockets. Watch this animation for an overview about the most common ways you can make sure your car or van is charged up and ready to go when you are..
1. Use the Departure Times feature with preconditioning via FordPass - this will warm your vehicle with charging power rather than stored battery.
2. Use the heated seats and heated steering wheel if you have them and reduce the temperature point of the climate system to reduce climate loads.
3. Use heated front and rear screens to clear and keep windows clear (this takes less energy than heating them from the air inside the cabin).
4. Use climate recirculation and non-defrost mode, if safe to do so - in this way you are heating the already warmed air in the cabin rather than the cold outside air.
5. Check the tyre pressure to adjust for the cold temps.
6. Brake gently to avoid wasting energy as the battery cannot accept as much energy at cold temperatures.
