Ford selected AeroVironment, Inc. as the preferred installation partner and authorized charging station supplier for the Ford Focus Electric, C-MAX Energi and Fusion Energi plug-in electric vehicles.  

Ford plug-in customers can purchase a Ford-approved 240-volt charger and schedule a turnkey professional installation by calling AeroVironment at 1 (888) 219-6747. Customers will also have a web-based option for ordering their home charging package or purchasing their charging station.

With AeroVironment’s 240-volt home charging package, Ford’s plug-in hybrid models, C-MAX Energi and Fusion Energi, will recharge in 2.5 hours, giving drivers another 21 miles of all-electric driving.  The Focus Electric will be ready for 76 miles of all-electric driving in less than 4 hours.  By comparison, charging the Focus Electric from a standard 120-volt wall outlet can require 18 to 20 hours for a full recharge.

AeroVironment has deployed more than 11,000 charging stations across North America.
