Ford’s Mustang-Inspired Electric Crossover Will Come With Two Years Of Free Charging

Ford’s Mustang-inspired electric crossover won’t be launched until late next year, but the company has announced some new details about the highly-anticipated model.

First and foremost, every crossover will come with a Ford Mobile Charger that can be connected to either a 120- or 240-volt outlet. With a traditional 120-volt outlet, the model will be given approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) of range for every hour of charge.

When connected to a 240-volt outlet, the charging speed increases significantly. In particular, Ford said the charger will deliver approximately 22 miles (35 km) of range for every hour the vehicle is charged.

If customers need something faster, they can purchase an optional Ford Connected Charge Station. It is slated to deliver 32 miles (51 km) of range for every hour of charging.

Since electrical work can be tricky, Ford has partnered with Amazon Home Services. Customers will be able to see upfront pricing estimates and schedule an appointment for a licensed electrician to install a 240-volt outlet or the Ford Connected Charge Station.

While most charging is done at home, customers will also need to charge on the road. To put their minds at ease, Ford will provide customers with two years of complimentary access to the FordPass Charging Network which consists of more than 12,000 charging stations.

The FordPass Charging Network provides access to “multiple charging providers” including Electrify America. The company said using one of their 150-kilowatt chargers can add an estimated 47 miles (76 km) of range in just 10 minutes. The charger will also be able to charge the battery from 10 percent to 80 percent in 45 minutes.

The FordPass app will also allow owners to set charging schedules, pre-condition their vehicle and find nearby charging stations.

Ford isn’t forgetting about Europeans either as the company announced customers will have “access to the largest – and fast-growing – network of public charging stations in Europe.” This includes high-performance IONITY stations which can deliver up to 57 miles (93 km) of range within 10 minutes.

Ford also implied their upcoming crossover will be offered in multiple configurations as they said the US numbers applied to “vehicles with the premium 300 mile (483 km) extended-range configuration.” This suggests there will also be a base configuration with a shorter range.

    “Ford said the charger will deliver approximately 22 miles (35 km) of range for every hour the vehicle is charged.”

    Still sucks if you commute say 55 miles. VERY common going from central jersey to either north jersey or NY.
    If you plug in @ 10 PM, leave @ 5 AM, that’s only 154 miles. And that range is best case………
