Ford and Allego has unveiled a strategic alliance aimed at implementing ultra-fast charging infrastructure across numerous Ford dealerships throughout Europe.

The new collaboration will further expand convenient and reliable charging solutions for customers of Ford electric vehicles (EVs) including the new electric Explorer¹, as the American brand journeys towards a 100 percent electric line-up of passenger and commercial vehicles in Europe by 2035.

Customers can from today order the Explorer crossover, Ford’s first EV passenger car engineered and built in Europe.

Delivering up to 400 kW charging, Allego ultra-fast charging stations at Ford dealerships will be accessible to EV drivers around the clock and compatible with vehicles that offer DC charging capability regardless of manufacturer.

Ford customers will benefit from preferential rates when paying for charging using their FordPass Charging Card, the FordPass app² or Plug & Charge, with other drivers able to pay using debit or credit card.

Allego’s Chief Executive Officer, Mathieu Bonnet, commented, “Allego continues to expand its network to meet the demand for charging that comes with more EVs on the road. Automakers like Ford are stepping up to the plate by producing a greater selection of EVs as the European market fully transitions to electric. By equipping these Ford dealerships with Allego’s ultra-fast charging technology, switching to electric will only become easier and more accessible to drivers throughout Europe.”

Ford’s European Head of Charging & Energy, Ford Model e, Joerg Hofmeister, commented “Ford believes charging infrastructure is one of the keys to giving consumers the confidence to make the switch to electric. 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.”

Ford’s European Manager, Charging & Energy Strategy and Go-to Market, Ford Model e, Oliver Adrian, says, “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 points³ in 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.”
