Ford to add 15,000 Tesla EV Superchargers to its network
Starting next spring, Ford EV drivers will be able to charge up at over 15,000 Tesla Supercharger stations.
The announcement comes after Ford was the first major automaker to announce it would add Tesla’s NACS plug
to its electric vehicles in May. Ford’s partnership with Tesla sparked a tidal wave of automakers to follow suit, including GM, Volvo, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Toyota, and several others.
Ford initially said its EV customers would gain access to over 12,000
Tesla Superchargers across North America in early 2024 using an adapter. However, the company is improving the offer with an extra 3,000 stations.
The company said it’s growing its BlueOval Charge Network
in North America by 25%, with over 106,000 chargers.
Ford added three new partners this month in Fracis Energy, Blink, and Red E. Between the three, drivers gain access to over 10,000 chargers and 500 new DC fast chargers.
The three join Shell, Recharge, Electrify America, EVgo, ChargePoint, Flo, EV Connect, and Electric Circuit as one of North America’s largest charging networks.
