Reston, VA, August 17, 2022 – Ford F-150 Lightning owners receive 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary charging through FordPass Rewards at Electrify America ultra-fast charging stations to kick-start their electric vehicle experience with Ford. This included charging benefit is available solely to F-150 Lightning retail customers.
For F-150 Lightning customers with the standard-range battery, the 250 kilowatt-hours of fast- charging energy is equal to nearly three “fill-ups,” or near-full charging sessions, or up to 575 miles of electric driving.
“Electrifying the F-150, America’s best-selling vehicle, is a game changer for bringing electric vehicles fully mainstream,” said Giovanni Palazzo, president and CEO of Electrify America. “We’re proud to have the F-150 Lightning and all Ford electric vehicles take advantage of Electrify America’s growing coast-to-coast ultra-fast charging network to build range confidence wherever they travel.”
Using Electrify America’s DC fast chargers, the F-150 Lightning with an extended-range battery can, depending on conditions, add an estimated 54 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes, and can achieve a 15 percent to 80 percent charge in approximately 41 minutes.
The F-150 Lightning is one of the most highly anticipated electric vehicles (EV). Reservations for the truck quickly reached nearly 200,000 ahead of order banks opening at the start of the year. 4,400 F-150 Lightnings have been sold this year to date across all 50 states. This charging agreement builds upon Electrify America’s previous agreement with Ford to provide 250 kilowatt-hours of charging for Mustang Mach-E customers, which has been on sale since late 2020.
Electrify America continues to drive EV adoption forward through building range confidence by rapidly expanding its fast-charging network, which currently has 800 charging stations comprised of about 3,500 individual chargers open or with construction completed. Electrify America expects to have more than 1,800 total charging stations with over 10,000 chargers in the United States and Canada by 2026. During this period, the company will be expanding to 49 states and the District of Columbia. Collaborations with automakers like Ford will support America’s transition to an electric vehicle future.
