BENEFITS OF GOING ELECTRIC

Quick and Quiet

New all‑electric vehicles from Ford offer an efficient and exhilarating driving experience. Car enthusiasts rave about the instant acceleration and better handling, but most drivers simply enjoy the quieter ride.

Charge At Home

Plug your vehicle at night and each morning you'll have a "full tank." No more stopping for gas in the morning to ensure you'll make it to work.

Federal Tax Credit

A federal tax rebate up to of $7,500 is available on many Ford EV models. Many states also offer additional rebates and incentives for electric vehicle customers—up to $2,500 in certain cases.*

Low Cost to Own

With fewer moving parts, EV owners can expect to spend about half as much on maintenance and repair. For example, the one-pedal driving or regenerative braking, helps reduce the normal wear and tear on your brake pads and rotors.

Understanding Charging

Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about 2–5 miles of range per hour, making Level 1 a good choice for plugin hybrid vehicles but not battery electric vehicles.

Level 2 chargers can be installed at your home by a professional electrician and charge about 10–20 miles of range per hour. A good choice for any EV when charging overnight.

Level 1 and 2 chargers can be used at home. In fact, the standard 120V outlet supports a Level 1 charger. Level 2 chargers require 240V and can be installed by a licensed electrician.

Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level 3 chargers provide about 60–80 miles of range in approximately 20 minutes.

How long does the battery last?

Most batteries will last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles when properly cared for. With battery technology continually advancing, that number should continue to increase.
