Ford selects AeroVironment as preferred charging station supplier

Ford Motor Company selected AeroVironment, Inc. as the preferred installation partner and authorized charging station supplier for the Ford Focus Electric, C-MAX Energi and Fusion Energi plug-in electric vehicles.

Ford plug-in customers can now purchase a Ford-approved 240-volt charger and schedule a turnkey professional installation with a call to AeroVironment. Soon customers will also have a web-based option for ordering their home charging package or purchasing their charging station.

AeroVironment has deployed more than 11,000 charging stations across North America.

AeroVironment’s 240-volt home charging package will recharge the C-MAX Energi and Fusion Energi plug-in hybrids 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.
