Ford Focus Electric (Previous Generation)

Ford Transit Connect Electric
ChargePoint Charging Stations to be installed immediately

Ford Motor Company along with newly announced partner Coulomb Technologies, an electric vehicle infrastructure company, will be presenting approximately 5,000 in-home charging stations free of cost to some of the first electric vehicle (EV) owners in the United States. 

Nine markets were chosen by Coulomb Technologies to receive ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations, which "deliver controlled power to effectively and efficiently charge electric vehicles." The nine markets are Detroit, Orlando, New York, Washington D.C., Austin, Redmond, Los Angeles, Sacramento and the San Jose/San Francisco Bay Area.

"We're excited to be in New York, because aside from the Mini E program and the Tesla Roadster, it hasn't seen much EV action," said Richard Lowenthal, CEO of Coulomb Technologies. "We expect to have great reception there."

Customers located in these nine markets are able to receive ChargePoint Charging Stations with any purchase of a Ford Transit Connect EV through the Ford Blue Oval ChargePoint Program, which helps "ensure customers receive a best-in-class retail experience at Ford dealerships." The program is part of a $37 million ChargePoint America charging station infrastructure project by Coulomb Technologies. In addition, this project is made possible by a "$15 million grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the Transportation Electrification administered by the Department of Energy." 

The ChargePoint charging stations will be available to all plug-in EV drivers. Those who miss out on the free chargers can use a public ChargePoint station by calling the toll-free, 24/7 phone number on each charging station, or by getting a ChargePass smart card through the ChargePoint monthly access plan. 

For its part, Ford plans to introduce five new EV's by 2012 in North America, including a Transit Connect Electric van due out the end of this year, a Ford Focus Electric passenger car to be released in 2011, a plug- in hybrid and two next-generation lithium-ion battery hybrid-electric vehicles which are set to debut in 2012. 

Available charging stations are listed on mychargepoint.net. Both home and public ChargePoint stations will be available to businesses and individuals.
