Ford offers charging solution for EV buyers

There is good news for electric vehicle buyers, with Ford Australia offering new charging options to customers at home and on the road.

Ford Australia is collaborating with EV charging provider, Evie Networks, to offer new charging choices.

This news comes after recent reports of the uncertainty of Tesla Superchargers in Australia, leaving Australians with less option for their EV charging stations.

As the country’s demand for electric vehicles increases, so too must the supply of appropriate infrastructure. Ford Australia encourages a strong uptake of smart home charging solutions, bolstered by an expansive, and reliable, public charging network such as that provided by Evie Networks.

With a national network of installers, and fast chargers in every state and territory across more than 230 locations, Evie  aims to accelerate EV adoption in Australia.

The EV Charging Package allows owners that can install the home charger, the ability to leave their home each day with a fully charged battery – simply by plugging in overnight.

The EV Charging Package includes a Teltonika Teltocharge 7.4kW single-phase wallbox, 5-meter tethered cable with Type 2 connector, and a smartphone app enabling charge scheduling, along with remote monitoring and control.

The EV Charging Package is available to both new and existing Ford customers, and is offered from $2,580, including the hardware, standard installation and $400 worth of free charging at any of Evie Network’s more than 230 public fast charging locations nationwide.

The collaboration with Evie Networks leverages the expertise of an EV charging specialist, providing customers with a convenient option for home and journey charging.

Ford Australia’s general manager of electric vehicles, Myles Hartley outlines the benefits of the charging system.

“When living with an EV, having a home charger installed makes life so simple. You simply drive it each day, and plug it in at home like you would a smartphone,” Hartley says.

“You get all the benefits of having a fuel bowser in your garage, able to fill up your car cheaply and easily overnight.

“Collaborating with Evie for this package allows Ford customers a stress-free installation process, plus the added benefit of $400 of public charging credit on their massive national public network for when Ford EV owners need to travel interstate in their car.”

The $400 Evie public charging credit can also be used in the interim period between purchasing the home charger and final installation being completed and is valid for 12 months from the point of purchase.

Evie CEO, Chris Mills highlights the collaboration with Ford Australia as an innovative next step for the automotive industry.

“Partnering with Ford showcases the continuous acceleration and innovation of the EV charging industry, propelling Australia towards a more sustainable automotive future,” Mills says.

“The Evie Network has more than 230 public charging sites across Australia, and while the number of locations is one factor, it’s important for those chargers to be operational when EV drivers need them.

“Ford customers can enjoy peace of mind when using our public charging network, which boasts an impressive 97 per cent uptime, with all locations powered entirely by renewable energy.”

The chargers are available to order from Evie Networks both online at and through an Authorised Ford EV Dealer.
