Ford F-150 Lightning owners are in for a nice surprise thanks to Ford’s partnership with Electrify America: 250 kWh of free fast charging.
Ford is currently ramping up deliveries of its electric F-150 Lightning pickup, and owners are still figuring out their charging habits. Most often, charging takes place at home, but Ford customers on long trips have to rely on the services of third-party charging networks.
One such network is Electrify America (EA).
EA announced today that Ford F-150 Lightning owners (excluding professional customers) will receive 250kWh of free charging:
Ford F-150 Lightning owners receive 250 kilowatt-hours of free charging through the FordPass Rewards program at Electrify America’s super-fast charging stations to get started with an electric vehicle with Ford. This included charging benefit is only available to F-150 Lightning retail customers.
The offer is through FordPass Rewards and is approximately three fees for F-150 Lightning owners, which should help new F-150 Lightning owners familiarize themselves with EA charging stations without having to pay.
Giovanni Palazzo, President and CEO of Electrify America, commented on the announcement:
The electrification of the F-150, America’s best-selling vehicle, was a game-changer to make electric vehicles completely mainstream. We’re proud that the F-150 Lightning and all Ford electric vehicles take advantage of Electrify America’s growing coast-to-coast ultra-fast charging network to give you the confidence to go anywhere you go.
It can’t be said that this discount will do much for Ford’s F-150 Lightning – as the vehicle is already in extremely high demand – but there are still some deals to be found at some dealerships. You can connect with your local Ford dealer here for availability in your area.
Ford has already delivered more than 4,000 electric pickups since deliveries began just a few months ago, and deliveries are expected to increase next year as Ford plans to increase production capacity to 150,000 units.
