Ford partners with Allego for fast-charging points at dealerships

Ford has signed an agreement with Dutch charging infrastructure specialist Allego to equip its European dealerships with fast-charging points, providing up to 400 kW of power and offering lower prices for FordPass Charging customers. The rollout of these chargers will begin this year.

The way to get customers back into dealerships? Why not offer a cheaper charging solution for their electric vehicles, where they can step inside to look at what’s new while waiting for about half an hour? Ford has partnered with Allego to provide up to 400 kW fast chargers at “hundreds of Ford dealerships across Europe”.

Allego is a well-known charging infrastructure provider in the Netherlands, Belgium, and France, where the company has partnered with Carrefour to equip its supermarket parking with (fast-)chargers.

Benefits for Ford owners

Ford customers will benefit from these Allego chargers. They will get preferential rates if they have a FordPass Charging Card or app. Plug & Charge is also available, eliminating the need to validate using the app or an RFID card. Other customers can also use a debit or credit card, which is also handy.

Ford currently has three fully electric passenger vehicle models: the Mustang Mach-E, the E-Tourneo Custom, and the recently launched Explorer, which is based on VW’s MEB platform.

But more electric Fords are coming, with the Puma Gen-E and the E-Tourneo Courier expected before the end of the year. By 2035, Ford will become an all-electric brand in Europe.
