Ford Plans to Offer Free Charges for Transit Connect Electric Vans
Ford Motor and a partner will give nearly 5,000 free home and public charging stations, worth about a $1,000 each, to buyers of its Transit Connect Electric van due this year -- if you live in Austin, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area, Redmond, Wash., and Washington D.C.
Ford's program is part of Coulomb Technologies' $37 million ChargePoint America charging station infrastructure project made possible by a $15 million grant funded by federal stimulus bill's Transportation Electrification Initiative.
"Both the ChargePoint America and Ford Blue Oval ChargePoint Programs help build the necessary infrastructure to make the electric vehicle a more viable option for American consumers," said Sue Cischke, Ford's global vice president, Sustainability, Environment and Safety Engineering.
