For 2016 C-Max Energy Customers in California and Maryland
Ford is offering three years of free Level 2 charging to customers in California and Maryland who purchase or lease a 2016 C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.
Under a pilot initiative dubbed “EV 1-2-3 Charge,” Ford will provide unlimited, complimentary charging sessions of four hours each at more than 500 NRG EVgo and SemaConnect public stations. C-Max Energi is capable of being fully charged in approximately 2.5 hours with the 240-volt charging stations that are included in the program.
“We’re coupling a fun, versatile, environmentally conscious car with a complimentary charge program that is easy to use and can reduce cost of ownership,” Ford electrification and infrastructure manager Stephanie Janczak says in a release. “It’s a win-win.”
Charging via the App
Beginning in December, Ford will make it easy for customers to find the charge stations via the MyFord Mobile app.
MyFord Mobile and myfordmobile.com allow plug-in electric vehicle owners to have “a seamless connected car experience,” as they can lock and unlock a vehicle, find where they parked, access charge status, mileage and driving efficiency, and schedule charge times.
The EV 1-2-3 Charge program for Maryland and California runs until October 1, 2016. C-MaX Energi drivers will receive a single access card allowing them to charge for free at NRG EVgo and SemaConnect charge stations.
