I am glad to see Ford supporting public charging. Now, let's see them produce electric vehicles and sell them in all 50 states.

I gather than Ford has bought access rights to Greenlots and EA facilities they plan to offer to Ford EV customers at a discount.

Yawn.

Who would guess that big oil would be involved in an EV project? Oh yeah what ever happened to the EV1...

"Greenlots, a member of the Shell Group, has led the buildout of the FordPass Charging Network. The program will go live in 2020 and all functionality will fall within the existing FordPass mobile app, which has been integrated with the Greenlots open standard technology platform."
