Ford unveils 12,000-station charging network for electric cars

Ford Motor Co. on Oct. 17 unveiled the FordPass Charging Network, comprising 35,000 charging plugs across 12,000 sites in North America.

The carmaker will launch the charging network in 2020 when it launches its first electric vehicles.

Users can find nearby stations and monitor charge levels through the FordPass mobile app or their vehicle's dashboard.

All Ford electric vehicles will come with a mobile charger or a higher-powered charge station that can be installed in homes. The company, which is also granting its customers two years of complimentary access to the network, said it teamed up with Amazon.com Inc.'s Amazon Home Services on installation services for customers.

The Michigan-based carmaker said it also partnered with Greenlots to sign other charging providers onto its network, which will be the largest in North America when it goes live.

Volkswagen AG-owned charging network operator Electrify America LLC will also work with Ford and provide access to DC fast-chargers to FordPass customers.
