City Of Dallas Will Use Ford EV Charging Infrastructure

While retail demand for EVs has declined as of late, that isn’t the case in the commercial fleet world, and Ford Pro is reaping the benefits of that trend. Thus far, The Blue Oval’s commercial-focused business unit has sold thousands of EVs to businesses and cities around the U.S. and Europe, though it also offers a full suite of software and Ford EV charging solutions as well. Thus far, those add-ons have been quite popular as well, and now, Ford EV charging infrastructure will be used across the city of Dallas, Texas as part of its own electric pivot, the automaker has revealed.

Dallas officials plan to electrify the city’s entire fleet by 2040, and as part of its effort to reach that goal, it has signed a 10-year agreement with Ford Pro to install Ford EV charging infrastructure at the its worksites, as well as lean on the entity’s smart charging software to customize and manage EV charging performance. This integrated hardware and software solution is designed to make the electric transition easier, and ensure that those vehicles are charged up and ready to go when they’re needed.

“The City of Dallas is committed to a clean, safe, and healthy environment, and we’re making great strides in our efforts to reduce emissions and improve air quality,” said Dallas Mayor Eric L. Johnson. “This agreement with Ford Pro marks a significant milestone and will help our city avoid energy waste and save money on energy costs. We look forward to building upon our work with Ford Pro to further scale EV charging infrastructure and electrify our fleet operations to continue to serve our great city now and in the future.”

“EV adoption is on the rise with state and local government fleets, and we’re proud to provide smart charging software and hardware to help electrify one of the Lone Star State’s biggest cities in one of America’s biggest metro areas,” said Ford Pro CEO Ted Cannis. “The impact software can have on EV charging can be substantial, helping public agencies like the City of Dallas not only manage charging infrastructure today, but help determine where chargers may be needed in the future.”
