Home, depot, and public charging solutions: we’ve got it all covered. Ford Pro Charging give you a broad range of options as well as the connectivity tools to maximise vehicle productivity and optimise the running costs of your electric fleet. From transition planning, through infrastructure, to managing charging as an everyday part of your business, we’re here to help with every aspect of electrifying your fleet.
If you are looking to recharge your plug-in or electric van when at home Ford Pro Charging offers solutions to make this options easier. Home charging can be completed by either plugging your vehicle into a regular domestic power socket, or a Ford Wallbox home EV charging point for faster home charging speeds.
A Ford Connected Wallbox delivers much faster home charging speeds than a regular domestic power socket, getting your all-electric or PHEV vehicle charged overnight. So you can ensure your electric vehicles are always charged and ready to work when you are. You can also manage your home charging schedules, in-vehicle or using the FordPass Pro app, to take advantage of variable energy tariffs. With the help of our expert partners at British Gas / Centrica, we can help you arrange the installation at your home. Alternatively, you can buy our wallbox directly and arrange installation yourself via a certified electrician. Contact our team today to learn more about purchasing your own Wallbox.
We understand that you want to ensure that the commercial vehicles within your fleet are always charged and ready for work when needed, and to do that you need to be in control of your charging infrastructure. Having your own depot charging solution puts you in complete control.
Installing Ford connected chargers at your business site will ensure your vehicles are always charged and work ready. Ford can provide the full package for your depot charging requirements; all your charging hardware, charging point installation and maintenance; along with software management system. Fast charging points will mean your electric vehicles are quick to recharge and ready to go.
The BlueOval™ Charge Network gives you easy access to over 300,000 charge points, over 16,000 which are in the UK, including high speed IONITY charging stations. With in-vehicle Ford Charge Assist, you can easily locate convenient charging along your route and provide real-time availability, cost and charging speed information for your selected charging point.
Customers with up to five vehicles can access the BlueOval™ Charge Network through the FordPass Pro app, letting you manage charging and payment all from your smartphone.
There are three main factors that can affect the driving range of a full electric vehicle:
Heavy acceleration and high speeds
• In any type of vehicle, accelerating fast will use more power and reduce range. This applies toInternal Combustion Engines (ICE) and Electric Vehicles (EV).
• Likewise, faster speeds create exponentially more wind and road resistance, impacting on range.
Climate and temperature
• Extreme heat or cold temperatures outside have the potential to affect battery range, directly. All electric vehicles (EV’s) have less energy when in cold temperatures compared to warm temperatures due to battery cell chemistry.
• Heating and cooling the inside of the vehicle for passenger comfort also has an impact.
• Transporting more weight in the form of heavy cargo or multiple passengers results in greater energy consumption.
