Ford Plans to Install Electric Vehicle Charging Stations for Employees

Ford Plans to Install Electric Vehicle Charging Stations for Employees

BRIGHTON, Mich. - Ford Motor Company has revealed plans to install electric vehicle charging stations for employees at over 50 of its U.S. and Canadian offices and plants. This installation would total to about 200 charging stations, all around U.S. and Canada.

The motive behind this move is to encourage Ford employees to purchase electric vehicles. Many consumers fear the electric vehicle simply because they believe that it will be costly to upkeep and they are concerned about the driving range of the vehicle. Even though Ford continues to develop electric vehicles to eliminate these worries, drivers are still hesitant.

To encourage electric vehicle sales, Ford Motor Company has slashed the prices of many electric vehicles over the past few months. Installing free electric vehicle charging stations for employees will help boost sales as well.

The charging stations will be at Ford offices and plants in the U.S. and Canada, and will offer free charging for the first four hours - this is enough time to fully charge a low battery. This free charging station will cost Ford about 50 cents per vehicle, but will save each employee up to $2 in gas a day.  Not to mention, between charging at home and charging at work, each electric vehicle owner should be able drive their cars in electric mode all the time.

Now that Ford plans to install electric vehicle charging stations for employees, it is definitely worth it to check out these great vehicles. The electric vehicles available are also a great buy for non-Ford employees, especially if you live in town and do a lot of local driving.
