Ford prepares giant network of charging stations in the US

Ford may not have a fully electric car yet, but when it is ready for this, there will be a huge network of thousands of charging stations where every electric car can charge, unlike charging stations of Tesla where only its own vehicles can charge.

The construction of the specific charging stations will be done in cooperation with Ford with the electric car charging companies Greenlots and Electrify America, with the network being called FordPass Charging Network. As far as Ford’s plans for its electric vehicle are concerned, the information indicates that in 2020 the sale of the electric SUV based on the Ford Mustang will begin.

It will be the first car of the company to be designed like a fully electric vehicle, while it is expected to be presented and the fully electric F-150 pickup. The Ford charging station network will include more than 12,000 charging stations where they can charge over 35,000 vehicles in the U.S. and some parts of Canada.
