Ford EV customers are covered with smartphone access via FordPass
Ford is putting to bed one of the biggest concerns for electric vehicle owners – that they won’t be able to charge quickly and conveniently – with a comprehensive Ford Charging Solutions ecosystem that will deliver seamless, integrated access to charging at home and across Europe.
Ford customers will be able to use the FordPass app to effortlessly locate, navigate to, pay for and monitor charging at more than 125,000 FordPass Charging Network locations in 21 countries when Ford begins delivery of new all-electric vehicles starting next year – for complete peace of mind on the move.
In addition, Ford’s Connected Wallbox will enable simpler, faster and more affordable charging of Ford electrified vehicles at home.
A further key feature within FordPass will allow customers to take advantage of FordPass Power My Trip, a trip planner that considers a vehicle’s current state of charge and identifies the right charging points along a route to make the trip as efficient as possible. FordPass will also identify points of interest – such as restaurants or shopping centres – to make the most of a customer’s time while their vehicle is powering up.
In addition, connected navigation functionality delivered by FordPass Connect will enable Ford customers in Europe to push pre-planned routes from their mobile phones or tablets directly to their electric vehicles over-the-air. Driving itineraries created from the comfort of home, the office or coffee shop, will be seamlessly downloaded to the vehicle’s sat-nav, meaning drivers can simply get in and set off on their chosen route.
