Lincoln EV Charging Station Looks Like Its Emblem

Sponsored

At this point, we all know that Ford is working in a Mustang-inspired SUV that is widely expected to be called the Mach-E. The Mach-E will spawn a Lincoln EV as well. Lincoln is going to offer a plug-in hybrid version of the Corsair, which will land before the pure Lincoln EV does.

Ahead of any plug-in hybrid and EV, Lincoln dealers need charging stations, and at least one of them has its station installed. An image of the charging station has turned up on Electrek, where they have said it is a copy of the Tesla Supercharger design.

They say it copies Tesla because of the opening in the center. We aren’t sure that the publication realizes the open center of the Lincoln charger is the shape of the Lincoln logo that the automaker has used since before Tesla was even a twinkle in Elon Musk’s eye. I guess if any EV charging station that has a hollow center is a copy of Tesla, then Lincoln is copying them.

One thing we will agree with the publication on is that we hope Lincoln follows the same steps that Tesla took when it first rolled out its Supercharger network. We’d like to see Lincoln offer EV and plug-in hybrid buyers free charging with the purchase of the car. Telsa did that early on with its Model S, and it certainly helped with the adoption of the EV.

We don’t know how exactly Ford will handle the charging of the EVs outside of offering EV chargers at dealerships. Ford has teamed with Ionity in Europe for charging stations and is working with Electrify America in the States. It appears for now that the automaker has no intention of rolling out its own branded charger network. Do you think Lincoln is copying Tesla?

    Is this a DC charger or just a fancy Level 2 EVSE? If it is the former, then Lincoln is ahead by offering DC charging and the battery must be over 50 kWh to merit this. But if it is a Level 2 EVSE with higher capacity (over 7 kW) , then I don’t need this, since I have a 16 kW EVSE that I built myself. Ford Authority should investigate what battery capacity this new Lincoln EV will offer.

    I leased a Lincoln Aviator EV from Crest Lincoln Mercury in Sterling Heights, MI.
    They had a wall mounted charging station with the Lincoln emblem on the front.
    I estimate it to be about 24″ h X 8″ w X 6″ d.
    They said they would get back to me as to where to obtain it, but no such luck.
    Can you help me?
    Thanks
