Following in the footsteps of Nissan's "No Charge To Charge" and Tesla's free Supercharger network, Ford announced a free charging deal for some owners of its' C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid today. Called EV 1-2-3 Charge, the deal is only good for buyers of a new 2016 C-Max Energi in Maryland and California. EV 1-2-3 Charge allows those drivers to fill up their battery an unlimited number of times (in four-hour stretches) at, "more than 500 participating NRG EVgo and SemaConnect public chargers across the nation for three years." So, despite the fact that the chargers are available nationwide, the program is only available to C-Max shoppers in two states – to say nothing about the Fusion Energi.

In any case, the participating chargers are Level 2, 240-volt systems that can refill a C-Max Energi's battery in about 2.5 hours, so four hours will be plenty. The deal is good for anyone who bought a C-Max Energi after October 1, 2015 or will do so before October 1, 2016 at an authorized dealer and have a Maryland or California driver's license. The free charger card will also be linked to your C-Max, and Ford says, "If you use the EV 1-2-3 Charge card to charge another vehicle, your subscription can be deactivated and your remaining program benefits forfeited." So, watch out for that.

You can find more at the frustrating-to-use EV 1-2-3 Charge website here.

Charge 'Er Up: Ford Offers Three Years' Complimentary Charging to C-MAX Energi Customers with EV 1-2-3 Charge

· Ford to offer complimentary 240-volt charging to customers in California and Maryland who purchase or lease a 2016 Ford C-MAX Energi. EV 1-2-3 Charge card will provide unlimited four-hour sessions of charging at more than 500 participating NRG EVgo and SemaConnect public chargers across the nation for three years

· With 240-volt charging, Ford C-MAX Energi can be fully charged in approximately 2.5 hours, versus the seven hours required from a standard 110-volt system

· Ford is the first automaker to integrate its MyFord® Mobile app with its in-car communications and entertainment system – SYNC® 3 – to help make it easy for customers to find and locate participating charge stations

DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 17, 2015 – Ford Motor Company will offer three years of complimentary charging to California and Maryland customers who purchase or lease a 2016 C-MAX Energi with its pilot EV 1-2-3 Charge program.

EV 1-2-3 Charge will provide unlimited, complimentary charging sessions of four hours each at more than 500 NRG EVgo and SemaConnect public stations across the nation. C-MAX Energi is capable of being fully charged in approximately 2.5 hours with the 240-volt charging stations that are included in the program.

"EV 1-2-3 Charge is a great way for customers to get the most out of their C-MAX Energi," said Stephanie Janczak, Ford manager, electrification and infrastructure. "We're coupling a fun, versatile, environmentally conscious car with a complimentary charge program that is easy to use and can reduce cost of ownership. It's a win-win."

Beginning in December, Ford will make it easy for customers to find these charge stations with MyFord® Mobile, which will identify participating stations with a pink-colored icon. The MyFord Mobile app and website are integrated with the vehicle's in-car communications and entertainment system – SYNC® 3.

MyFord Mobile and myfordmobile.com allow plug-in electric vehicle owners to have a seamless connected car experience, giving them the ability to easily lock and unlock their vehicle, find where they parked, access charge status, mileage and driving efficiency, as well as schedule charge times – all with the touch of a finger. The app may be downloaded to an iPhone or Android phone and to Apple or Android Wear smart watches.

Eligible customers in Maryland and California purchasing or leasing a 2016 Ford C-MAX Energi between Oct. 1, 2015 and Oct. 1, 2016 will receive an EV 1-2-3 Charge registration packet in the mail. Similar to traditional gas cards, once the access card is activated, customers will be able to access NRG EVgo and SemaConnect charge stations with the convenience of one card.

For more information or to locate participating charge stations, visit ev123Charge.com or myfordmobile.com.
