With 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning deliveries officially underway, many will undoubtedly be looking to utilize one of the EV pickup’s most compelling accessories – Ford Charge Station Pro, which not only charges the vehicle at a faster rate, but also enables owners to use Intelligent Backup Power and power their entire home for up to three days or up to 10 days in conjunction with solar power. However, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that Ford Charge Station Pro is now facing a delay in distribution.
Currently, Ford expects its Charge Station Pro to be available no later than June 30th, which means that some customers will inevitably take delivery of their F-150 Lightning without this feature. Of course, the EV pickup can be charged in a number of other ways in the meantime, whether that be via a regular 120-volt outlet, a larger 240-volt outlet, or through any number of charging stations located throughout the country.
The Ford Charge Station Pro comes as standard equipment on all F-150 Lightning models equipped with the Extended Range battery, and is also available separately for an MSRP of $1,310 minus installation. However, the 80-amp charger is currently listed as being out of stock at Ford’s official site. Regardless, in addition to enabling Intelligent Backup Power, the Charge Station Pro is capable of adding 30 miles of range to the F-150 Lightning with an Extended Range battery per hour, or 19 miles for Standard Range battery-equipped models.
The Charge Station Pro comes with a 25-foot charge cord and coupler, a wall-mounting bracket, template, and hardware. Ford recommends Sunrun as its preferred installer for the unit, while that same company can also install Ford’s Home Integration System, which costs an additional $3,895, minus installation.
