Accessing Tesla’s Superchargers Now Available for Ford F-150 Lightning & Mustang Mach-E Owners

Non-Tesla Automaker Gains Supercharger Access: A Milestone for Blue Oval Company

Ford is providing customers with the Fast Charging Adapter at no cost in order to enable them to charge their electric vehicles at Tesla’s Supercharger network throughout North America.

Ford has become the initial non-Tesla automotive manufacturer to successfully attain permission to use Tesla’s charging stations located throughout the United States and Canada. With a whopping number of over 15,000 Superchargers now at their disposal, owners of Ford’s F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E models can rejoice in having double the amount of DC fast charging alternatives on the BlueOval Charge Network.

I am overjoyed to share that I had my first experience supercharging at the Tesla Charging station! I want to express my gratitude to the amazing team at Ford for making this possible. The Plug&Charge feature was incredibly quick and effortless. I am eagerly anticipating the moment when all Ford electric vehicle owners can also benefit from this same convenience and efficiency. Thank you again, Ford! #Tesla #FordEV #PlugAndCharge

The newly launched Fast Charging Adapter will now be offered to both current and new customers who are part of the BlueOval Charge Network, free of charge until June 30, 2024. From that point onwards, prospective Ford EV clients will be required to purchase the adapter directly from Ford at a cost of $230, which includes estimated taxes and shipping fees.

In the upcoming months, Ford Pro will reach out to their commercial clients through mail or their assigned Ford Pro account manager in order to purchase an adapter.

According to the latest update, customers now have the option to use their FordPass app for payment instead of going through the hassle of creating a new account on the Tesla app or paying in person with a credit card. All they have to do is set up an account and activate the Plug & Charge feature to begin. In the near future, payment will also be accessible through the Charge Assist App, soon to be renamed as “Public Charge,” directly on the vehicle’s touchscreen.

“Effective immediately, Ford’s EV customers will now be able to utilize over 15,000 Tesla Superchargers located throughout the United States and Canada. This significant increase in fast charging options on the BlueOval Charge Network will greatly enhance the public charging experience for our valued customers. It is an essential aspect of our continued growth as a leading EV brand,” stated Jim Farley, CEO and president of Ford.

I want to express my gratitude to Elon and the entire Tesla team for their strong partnership and Tesla’s remarkable leadership in revolutionizing the lives of countless electric vehicle (EV) customers by enhancing their access to charging.

Last year, Ford became the pioneer in the automotive industry to declare its transition to Tesla’s NACS, and was soon joined by General Motors and Rivian. The popular Tesla Supercharger network is now facing some competition, with Ionna, a newcomer to the game supported by prominent brands like BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, and Stellantis.
