Ford is making electric vehicles more attractive for its employees by installing new charging stations at 50 different Ford facilities in North America.
This new program will see the company add about 200 chargers to the already existing 1,700 that Ford has installed at dealerships and other company facilities. The new chargers are allocated specifically for company offices, product development campuses and manufacturing facilities.
For electrified vehicles, Ford currently offers the Ford Focus EV along with two plug-in hybrids, the Fusion Energi and C-Max Energi. The charging stations will be free for employees for the first four hours of use, and the company estimates that each vehicle will only cost them 50 cents to fully charge.
“We know that a growing electrified vehicle infrastructure is key to making plug-in vehicles a viable option for more consumers. Ford is committed to doing our part to help grow that infrastructure,” said Mike Tinskey, Ford global director of vehicle electrification and infrastructure.
