European Ford Dealers To Get Allego Ultra-Fast Chargers

In the U.S., a transition to electric vehicles currently doesn’t have any sort of mandated date, though various bits of legislation are aiming to vastly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the coming years. However, in Europe, a proposed 2035 ICE ban seems likely to take effect in some form, though a number of automakers and lobby groups are still fighting that proposal. Regardless, Ford still plans to transition to an all-electric passenger vehicle lineup by 2030 or sooner in that region, and it’s offering customers different types of purchasing and ownership experiences compared to Americans as well. This includes the types of chargers present at Ford dealers, too – in the U.S., those sellers are set to get EV chargers from EnviroSpark, while in Europe, Ford dealers will now be receiving Allego ultra-fast chargers.

European Ford dealers will soon be receiving these new ultra-fast chargers thanks to a new partnership between the automaker and Allego, which is already a leading pan-European public EV fast and ultra-fast charging network provider. This partnership will result in hundreds of European Ford dealers receiving 400 kW chargers that will be accessible to EV owners 24 hours a day, and compatible with all vehicles that offer DC charging capability – no matter what brand that vehicle might be. However, Ford owners will benefit from cheaper rates when using their FordPass charging card, the Plug & Charge feature, or the FordPass app when paying for charging sessions.

“Ford believes charging infrastructure is one of the keys to giving consumers the confidence to make the switch to electric,” said Joerg Hofmeister, Head of Charging & Energy, Ford Model e, Europe. “Our new partnership with Allego is going to make the charging experience faster and more convenient for our customers, and encourage more drivers than ever to consider the benefits of zero emissions while driving in vehicles like our new electric Explorer.”

“The new high-power charging stations will be included within the BlueOval Charge Network – Ford’s public charging service – which enables drivers to access and pay for charging at more than 600,000 charging points in Europe,” added Oliver Adrian, Manager, Charging & Energy Strategy and Go-to Market, Ford Model e, Europe. “A key benefit for Ford customers will be the Plug & Charge technology at Allego charging stations – providing fast and secure charging without needing to use an app or RFID card.”
