USA: Ford helping U.S. cities charge up for EV readiness

Ford, like every other electric-car maker, considers infrastructure development an essential part of making EVs a viable option for consumers as more companies release vehicles that plug into the wall to be fueled. The Dearborn automaker said that it is working with cities and utility partners to identify key infrastructure foundations that will enable metropolitan areas to be EV ready.

In an effort to gear up for the launch of the all-new Ford Focus Electric later this year and the C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid in 2012, Ford is helping cities around the country to prepare for the arrival of new electric vehicles.

“As more and more electric vehicles come to market, it’s incredibly important that cities develop action plans including infrastructure development and permitting solutions to ensure these vehicles are a viable solution for citizens,” said Mike Tinskey, Ford’s manager of Vehicle Electrification and Infrastructure. “Ford continues outreach with cities across the country to spread best practices and work with multiple partners including local utilities, auto manufacturers, technology companies and others to support a successful integration of electric vehicles.”
