Is Electric right for me? When you choose to buy one of our fully electric or plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Ford models, you can do so with absolute confidence. Not only do our electric and PHEV Ford cars and vans deliver low-cost, low/zero-emission driving, they’re provided with a wide range of charging options.

EV Charging

Charging made simple

Did you know that you can charge your Ford vehicle at home and out and about? Domestic charging is as simple as can be, and whenever you’re on the road, you can make use of Ford BlueOval. This extensive charge network comprises more than 21,000 access points which are located all around the UK, and the figure is growing all the time. Indeed, we fully anticipate that 500,000 charging points will be available throughout Europe by the close of 2024.

Home charging An estimated 80% or more electric/PHEV owners charge their vehicles at home. This is because it’s the most convenient option, particularly since you can leave your car to charge overnight. At home, two charging methods are available. The first is via a standard three-pin socket, which is the slowest solution. The second is with a specially installed dedicated wallbox, which offers fast-charging capability.
Fleet depot charging A dedicated Ford Connected wallbox represents an elegant business solution, one that offers fast charging, ensuring that you and your Ford fleet enjoy optimal vehicular uptime.
Public charging With 21,000-plus BlueOval Charge Network stations all around the UK, you’re never far from your next electric top-up. Furthermore, with the FordPass app (more of which shortly), you’ll always be able to easily locate your nearest public charging station.

FordPass - No-fuss payments

In conjunction with the BlueOval Charge Network, the FordPass app makes it easy to pay for public charging. Just add a debit/credit card to your Ford account and you’ll enjoy simple, safe and secure payment procedures every time.

    Check your charging status Even when you’re away from your Ford, you can keep an eye on its charging progress via the app. You’ll receive a notification as soon as it’s fully topped-up, and should there be any issues (such as a disconnected cable), you’ll know about those straightaway too.
    Perfect route planning Based on your intended destination, the FordPass EV Trip Planner will calculate the optimal route, one that features plenty of charging stops along the way, should you require them.
    Locate your nearest charging station The app allows you to easily find details of your nearest charging stations, while providing information about the various charging solutions they offer, and much more besides.

    The average electric car range. Check your Ford vehicle’s range - As well as battery capacity, range is dependent on your driving style, the weather, air conditioning usage and other factors. With the Intelligent Range feature, which is included with FordPass, you’ll have the benefit of accurate range data. View charging point map
    Short Trips. If embarking on a short journey – perhaps in and around a town or city – you’ll have no problems making the trip with an all-electric vehicle. Actually, there’s every likelihood that a PHEV will be able to complete the journey using electric power only. The Kuga PHEV, for instance, offers a range of up to 41 miles.
    Medium Trips. A medium-length journey, up to 100 miles, for example, might require a visit to a nearby public charging point. This will only be necessary if your Ford electric vehicle isn’t fully charged before setting off. The Mustang Mach-E offers a range of up to 273 miles while the all-new E-Transit panel van manages a maximum 196-mile range.
    Long Trips. Any journey longer than 200 or 300 miles will require a little forethought. For instance, ensure that your electric Ford is fully charged, and be aware of potential stopping-off points enroute that allow you to top-up the battery. Thankfully, as we’ve already mentioned, there are more than 21,000 BlueOval Charge Network points situated throughout the UK.


    Cost of maintenance As opposed to a traditional internal combustion engine, an electric vehicle is fitted with a pure-electric powertrain which consists of fewer working parts. This means that it’s less likely to go wrong and is therefore cheaper to maintain.
    Government's Electric Schemes The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) offers an EV charge-point grant that contributes towards the cost (covering as much as 75%) of smart charge-points at domestic properties. Electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid vehicles are exempt from city clean-air-zone tariffs, such as London’s ULEZ, which applies a daily charge of £12.50 to owners of non-compliant vehicles.
    Cost of daily use Electrified vehicles are more affordable to run than their purely combustion-engined counterparts – for instance, the Kuga PHEV returns up to 201.8mpg. In comparative terms, electricity is cheaper than fuel, which means that a 100% electric vehicle such as the Mustang Mach-E is very cost-effective to run.
