Ford has announced the launch of MyFord Mobil, a new app developed by Ford engineers that includes a public charger location database.
MyFord Mobile can only be used with Ford Focus Electric and the soon-to-be-available C-MAX Energi and Fusion Energi plug-in hybrids. The charging station locator, powered by MapQuest, provides important details about stations in proximity to the owner's vehicle, such as street addresses and hours of operation.
In addition to locating charging stations, Ford says the app allows customers to manage remote charging, view current battery status and plan trips.
‘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,’ says Mike Tinskey, Ford's manager of vehicle electrification and infrastructure.
