Ford Energi and Electric Vehicle Charging Times

Seeing as we are almost always out and about in this day and age, quick charging times are one of the biggest factors in the decision making process for those looking to purchase an electricity-powered vehicle. Ford has been producing electric vehicles for quite some time now, and with three different offerings to choose from, there are a great deal of residents in the Kansas City area who are confused about the differences between the triple threat of electric vehicles. For that reason we thought it would be helpful to take a look at all three of the Ford Energi and electric vehicle charging times.

There are a range of chargers available and charging times often rely on the type of charger that is used. Most of the public EV charging stations in Kansas City MO are loaded with 240 volts, and seeing as the recommended voltage for home charging stations is also 240, we will provide you with all of the charging times for the manufacturer-suggested 240-volt chargers. 120-volt charging stations are also available for home installation and can be plugged into any standard outlet, but as the charging times are twice as long, the 120-volt chargers are not nearly as popular or effective as those that shell out double the voltage.

With four hours, you can plug the vehicle into an EV charging station near your place of employment and have it charged by the time you leave for your lunch break, or you can plug it in overnight and wake up to a fully charged vehicle.

If you don’t have four hours to spare, you will find that the C-Max Energi Plug-in Hybrid or the Fusion Energi Plug-in Hybrid are better suited for your needs. When hooked up to the recommended Level 2, 240-volt charger, both of the Energi offerings are able to reach a full charge in as little as two-and-a-half hours. It doesn’t matter how busy you are, seeing as the vehicles take less than three hours to power up, these plug-in hybrid offerings are some of the best cars for commuters and errand runners alike.

It is worth noting that these three vehicle are the only ones that need to be plugged in. Ford also offers up a C-Max Hybrid and a Ford Fusion Hybrid, neither of which require charging as they use a revolutionary regenerative braking system to collect kinetic energy that is typically lost during coasting and braking. The system takes all of that energy and routes it back to the battery, helping to keep it charged at all times.

If you want to learn more about the Ford Energi and electric vehicles and get more information on their charging times, or where in Kansas City they can be charged, be sure to check out the rest of the Matt Ford blog where you can find a great deal of information about every single one of the gas, electric or hybrid vehicles in the Ford lineup.

  7. Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!
