Electrify America – a Ford EV charging partner – has been working on growing its footprint over the past several months, most recently signing an expansion deal with TravelCenters of America Inc. while also revealing a new charger naming scheme and a quality pledge, as well as an advertising campaign starring the Ford F-150 Lightning. Now, that growth continues after Electrify America has opened its very first charging station in the state of Hawaii, too.
The Ford EV charging partner just opened its latest charging station in Pearl City, Hawaii, which is located on the island of Oahu. This means that Electrify America – the nation’s largest open DC fast charging network for electric vehicles – now has chargers in a total of 47 states plus the District of Columbia. This latest addition aims to provide an ultra-fast charging solution for EV owners in that particular part of the world.
The new Hawaiian charging station features a total of four chargers, which are capable of delivering up to 150 kW to compatible vehicles. Owners are able to pay for charging via debit or credit cards, or by using the Electrify America mobile app, which allows drivers to easily locate a station, initiate a charge, and check their charging session progress from their phones.
This latest expansion is part of Electrify America’s investment totaling more than $2 billion in Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure, education, and access, which aims to support the build-out of a nationwide network of ultra-fast community and highway chargers that are convenient and reliable. The company currently expects to operate more than 1,800 chargers across the U.S. and Canada, along with 10,000 chargers, by 2026, by which point it will have also expanded to cover 49 U.S. states.
