Climate change is a global challenge that affects us all. That’s why we’ve set ourselves a long-term aspiration to make postivie contributions to the local ecosystems in which our facilities operate.
Achieve Carbon neutrality by 2050
Attain zero emissions from our vehicles and facilities
Use 100 percent local, renewable electricity in all manufacturing by 2035
Reach true zero waste to landfill across our operations
Eliminate single-use plastics from our operations by 2030
Make zero water withdrawals for manufacturing processes
Use freshwater only for human consumption
Utilize only recycled or renewable content in vehicle plastics
Work toward a future that is free from vehicle crashes and workplace injuries
Source only raw materials that are responsibly produced
Create a truly diverse culture where everyone feels like they belong
Drive human progress by providing mobility and accessibility for all
Ford is bringing Electric Zero-Emission Vehicles to America with its new Blueoval City complex located in Tennessee and twin battery plants in Kentucky.
As with gasoline-fueled cars, electric vehicle range can be affected—and maximized—by several factors.*
*Actual range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviors, vehicle maintenance and lithium-ion battery age.
Heavy acceleration will have a negative effect on the vehicle’s state of charge, whereas accelerating at a slow steady pace can help preserve the range.
Climate control use during hot or cold outside temperatures will adversely affect the driving range of an electric vehicle. To help reduce the impact heating and cooling systems have on range, electric vehicles can be preconditioned** ahead of departure while the car is still charging. The desired cabin temperature can be achieved without using energy from the battery thus preserving range. This can be done through the FordPass™ app*** and, in all-electric models, from the center stack screen inside the vehicle itself.
**Effectiveness of cabin conditioning may be reduced by extreme outside temperatures or when using 120-volt charging.
*** The FordPass app, compatible with select smartphone platforms, is available via a download.

The Regenerative Braking System is capable of capturing and reusing more than 90% of the braking energy† normally lost during the braking process and recharges the high-voltage battery.‡
† Results may vary based on driving habits.
‡ Range and charge time based on manufacturer computer engineering simulations and EPA-estimated range calculation methodology. The charging rate decreases as battery reaches full capacity. Your results may vary based on peak charging times and battery state of charge. Actual vehicle range varies with conditions such as external environment, vehicle use, driving behaviors, vehicle maintenance, lithium-ion battery age and state of health.
On the road, Ford customers will have simple and easy access to the Blue Oval™ Charge Network – the largest public charging network in North America offered by automotive manufacturers. With over 19,500 charging stations and growing, these stations are as common as some of the most popular pharmacy or coffee chains.*
Get to know your all-electric vehicle with these tips for fast and convenient charging.
There are many ways to charge your all-electric vehicle. Here are a few things you should know before plugging in.
Charging at home can be as simple as plugging in, but here are some additional tips on how to enjoy a seamless charging experience.
Going all-electric is as easy on your wallet as it is on your lifestyle. Drivers of all-electric vehicles can enjoy potential government incentives, no gas usage, zero vehicle emissions and lower scheduled maintenance costs.
You may qualify for as much as $7,500 in federal tax incentives for purchasing an all-electric Ford vehicle in 2020. The federal tax credit is a potential future tax savings. The amount of your tax savings will depend on your individual tax circumstances. Many states also offer additional rebates and incentives for electric vehicle customers — up to $2,500 in certain cases. For additional information, go to https://www.afdc.energy.gov/laws/409
Electric vehicles have fewer moving parts, which could potentially lower scheduled maintenance costs.
You could be eligible for additional savings. Local utility companies may offer additional rebates or lower charging rates for electric vehicle owners. Check with your local utility provider for complete details.
Potentially save more than time at the gas station. A customer choosing an electric vehicle with a battery electric efficiency of 32.9 kWh could save an estimated $893 in annual fuel costs compared with a gas-powered vehicle with an EPA-estimated rating of 20 mpg combined.
From the storied automaker who brought you an American legend, a proven workhorse and seamless versatility, we now give them all to you – electrified.
