Ford Selects AeroVironment as Preferred Charging Station Provider

May 15, 2013

Ford has selected AeroVironment to be its preferred charging station provider. Ford plug-in customers can purchase the Ford-approved 240-volt charger and schedule a turnkey installation by calling AeroVironment and customers will soon have a Web-based option for ordering their home charging package or purchasing their charging station.

With AeroVironment’s 240-volt home charging package, Ford’s plug-in hybrid models, C-MAX Energi, and Fusion Energi, will recharge in 2.5 hours, giving drivers another 21 miles of all-electric driving. The Focus Electric will be ready for 76 miles of all-electric driving in less than 4 hours. By comparison, charging the Focus Electric from a standard 120-volt wall outlet can require 18 to 20 hours for a full recharge.

AeroVironment, Inc. designs, develops, produces, operates, and supports electric transportation solutions and electric-powered Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). With more than 11,000 charging stations distributed thus far, AeroVironment will add Ford plug-in electric vehicles owners to the list.
