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

Customers can now 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 app or Plug & Charge, with other drivers able to pay using debit or credit card.

“Ford believes charging infrastructure is one of the keys to giving consumers the confidence to make the switch to electric,” said Joerg Hofmeister, Ford’s European head of charging and energy. “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.”
