Blueoval City

Ford is bringing Electric Zero-Emission Vehicles to America with its new Blueoval City complex located in Tennessee and twin battery plants in Kentucky.

Electric Complex

  • Called BlueOval City, the complex will be constructed on a nearly 6-square-mile site in west Tennessee and build next-generation electric F-Series pickups and advanced batteries
  •  Moreover, a new BlueOval SK Battery Park is to be built in central Kentucky consisting of twin battery plants that will power a new lineup of Ford and Lincoln EVs
  • Ford and SK Innovation plan to invest $11.4 billion and create nearly 11,000 new jobs – close to 6,000 in Stanton, Tennessee, and 5,000 in Glendale, Kentucky; production of the new electric vehicles and advanced lithium-ion batteries will begin in 2025
  • Three new BlueOval SK battery plants – two in Kentucky and one in Tennessee – will enable 129 gigawatt hours a year of U.S. production capacity for Ford
  • These investments build on Ford’s recent announcements that it will work with Redwood Materials on closed-loop domestic battery recycling and make a new investment to increase production of the F-150 Lightning pickup in Dearborn, Michigan, starting next year
  • Ford is investing $90 million in Texas – $525 million total in the U.S. to train skilled technicians to service connected, electric zero-emission vehicles

What Affects Range?

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.

Aggressive Driving

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

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.

Regenerative Braking

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.

Ford Offers You the Largest Public Charging Network in North America

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.*

Federal and State Incentives

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

Scheduled Maintenance Estimated 35% lower Costs vs. Comparable Vehicles

Electric vehicles have fewer moving parts, which could potentially lower scheduled maintenance costs.

Other Available Utility Savings and Incentives

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.

$893 of Potential Annual Savings on Fuel

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.
