Ford Launches European Ultra-Fast Charging

Ford announced a strategic partnership to bring ultra-fast charging infrastructure to hundreds of Ford dealerships across Europe.

The automaker partnered with Allego N.V., a pan-European public electric vehicle fast and ultra-fast charging network.

The new collaboration will expand convenient and reliable charging solutions for customers of Ford electric vehicles (EVs) including the new electric Explorer.

Ford seeks to have a 100% electric lineup of passenger and commercial vehicles in Europe by 2035. Customers can order the Explorer crossover, Ford’s first EV passenger car engineered and built in Europe.

Delivering up to 400 kW charging, Allego ultra-fast charging stations at Ford dealerships will be accessible to EV drivers around the clock and compatible with vehicles that offer DC charging capability regardless of manufacturer.

“Ford believes charging infrastructure is one of the keys to giving consumers the confidence to make the switch to electric,” said Ford’s European Head of Charging & Energy, Ford Model e, Joerg Hofmeister, in a statement. “Our new partnership with Allego is going to make the charging experience faster and more convenient for our customers, and encourage more drivers than ever to consider the benefits of zero emissions while driving in vehicles like our new electric Explorer.”
