New Software by Ford Improves EV Charging in Trucks 1.4.22
Ford is rolling out new products to improve the charging capabilities of vehicles. They are introducing the Ford Pro Charging to ease the transition to a new electric future. The Pro Charger is a subscription that offers new hardware and software to their vehicles to help drivers improve their charging and driving experience. This will give fleet owners an insight on the health and charging status of the new vehicles.

This new software provides solutions for issues certain fleets may face when they transition too electric. Ford vehicles are often used for construction and other types of manual labor, some worries surround how much battery will be used when towing materials or doing deliveries. Doing tasks that require more power could result in needed to stop and charge instead of just driving. Due to work vehicles being out on the road or a job site for so long, they could have a limited charging window available to refuel.

Meanwhile, another plan is in the works of Ford helping install charging stations at homes or other locations fleets may be parked. Ford has previously announced it would allocate $29 billion on electric and autonomous vehicles until 2025. Like many other corporations in the auto industry, Ford is working to adapt to the latest uptick in the surge of customers shopping for electric vehicles and the environmental goals of the country.
