Ford is looking to stop many of the pre-conceived perceptions plug-in vehicles, and we here at Bickford Ford have to say that it is working.
Think plug-in vehicles are rather uninspired or perhaps dull? The 2012 Ford Focus Electric has a very similar styling as its gasoline-based counterpart. For that matter, so is the forthcoming 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid.
Are you worried about limited cargo/passenger room? The 2013 Ford C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid has very comfortable seating for up to five adults as well as up to 42.8 cubic feet of cargo room.
Then there's the biggest misconception of all: there are no public charging stations available. To address this issue, Ford has developed a new Smartphone app called MyFord Mobile that allows users to find a public charging station near them. It's powered by MapQuest, tracks more than 9,500 already-known locations, and allows more to be added every day.
"As more stations join the grid, MyFord Mobile users will be among the first to know because information about charger locations is constantly being culled from various sources to provide the most up-to-date data,"1 says Mike Tinskey, Ford Manager of Vehicle Electrification and Infrastructure.
That means drivers can feel even more confident behind the wheel of a plug-in vehicle than ever before.
