- Ford has announced new rewards for customers of the Mustang Mach-E electric vehicle, offering up to five free “fill-ups” at Electrify America’s DC quick-charging stations.
- The quantum of the free charging sessions will be determined by the battery pack used on your Mach-E.
- Customers will have to sign up for the FordPass program using the FordPass mobile app and activate a modem within 60 days of purchase to be eligible for the freebie.
Those looking to book the Ford Mustang Mach-E have some good news waiting for them. Ford has announced that customers of the EV in the U.S. will be able to access Electrify America’s charging stations for up to “five fill-ups” on a standard range battery model and up to 3 fill-ups on the extended range battery models.
Specifically, Ford is offering 250 kilowatt-hours of charging for Mach-E customers, although how much you get out of it depends on the model you own. The company had initially promised to have up to 12,000 charging locations for the Mach-E at launch, and this is clearly an extension of that in partnership with Electrify America.
This promotion will run through the FordPass Rewards Program, which includes the FordPass app that helps you set up your Mach-E.
Here’s an excerpt from Ford’s media release – “To qualify for complimentary charging offer, modem must be activated within 60 days of purchase through the FordPass app on a smartphone. Complimentary charging expires two years from date of activation.”
Though it’s clear that Ford wants customers to get in on the FordPass service, there’s currently no clarity on what the “modem” here refers to. But we’ll keep our ear to the ground for more details on this.
In addition to the free charging access, Ford will also sell the Ford Connected Charge Station wall-box which will set you back by $799. Ford has also clarified that every model of the Mach-E will come with the Ford Mobile Charger which can charge on a 240-volt electrical outlet.
Ford has reportedly teamed up with Amazon Home Services to provide home installations of charging boxes, although customers may be charged for the electrician/mechanic required for the job.
