Ford EVs will use Tesla’s Huge Supercharger Network to charge faster

The deal more than doubles the amount of fast charging available to owners of Ford electric vehicles like the F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E, Ford said.

Ford announced this afternoon that it is working with Tesla to help expand self-driving cars for US customers. Now owners of Ford electric vehicles, including the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning (pictured above, with CEO Jim Farley),

can use more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers to quickly charge their vehicles.

Ford will also introduce plug-in charging as standard in its EVs by 2025, meaning Ford EV owners will no longer need special adapters to use Superchargers. In a late announcement on Thursday, May 25, Ford said it has reached an agreement that will allow Ford EV owners to

access the Tesla Supercharger network starting in the spring of 2024.

In the announcement, Ford President and CEO Jim Farley said that it will be more than double the number of fast chargers in the United States and Canada for owners of Ford electric vehicles, including the superchargers – Mustang Mach-E, E -Transit and F-150 Fire. They

currently have around 10,000 fast chargers available through Ford’s BlueOval charging network, and more than 12,000 Superchargers will be added as part of the deal.

In an almost surprising development, Ford said its EVs will also get plug-ins to use Superchargers. By 2025, the connections developed by Tesla will be included in Ford’s new electric cars, the company said. The integration of Tesla North American Charging Standard (NACS)

and Ford electric vehicles with CCS (Combined Charging System) ports will allow the use of vehicles with Tesla V3 chargers. A Ford spokesperson called the link “small and light” to provide a “superior customer experience”.
