CHARGING OPTIONS

With electrified vehicles growing in popularity, more and more customers are going to want information on the charging options available to them. Whether their primary need is for home charging or public charging, your knowledge and advice is going to be a valuable asset.

In this section, we'll be addressing the charging of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) and All-Electric Vehicles (BEV). Hybrid vehicles cannot be plugged in and will not be covered here.

CHARGING AT HOME

Ford offers several charging options, each with different charging speeds. The speed depends on:

  • The voltage of the source
  • The amperage that the charging cord can carry
  • The capacity (size) of the battery receiving the charge
