The new Allego charging stations now to be built at Ford dealerships will offer a charging capacity of up to 400 kW and be accessible around the clock. Ford has said that the stations will be compatible with all CCS-capable vehicles. Ford will be offering its customers preferential energy pricing and the added advantage of Plug & Charge technology.

The US car manufacturer has not announced how many charging stations will be installed and over what period of time, saying only that the new charging stations will be part of its BlueOval charging offer that provides access to more than 600,000 charging points in 36 countries in Europe. Ford has the stated aim of offering a 100 per cent electric product range of passenger and commercial vehicles in Europe.

Ford is currently offering the all-electric Mustang Mach-E in Europe, while its new all-electric Ford Explorer can now be ordered, albeit initially only with an Extended Range battery for a price starting at 49,500 euros. The variant with a standard-range battery is not expected to be available to order until the end of 2024 and will start at 42,500 euros. The carmaker also offers drivers the Ford Kuga as a plug-in hybrid.

Joerg Hofmeister, Head of Charging & Energy at Ford Model in Europe, says that the partnership with Allego not only promises to increase the density of the network of fast-charging options but also strengthens the role of Ford dealerships as central points of contact for car mobility solutions. He asserts that this will have a positive effect on the acceptance of electromobility.,
