How much does it cost to charge an electric car?

Local electricity rates can affect the exact cost of charging an EV, but typically you'll spend less to charge your EV's battery than you would to fill a gas engine for the same milage.

How far can an electric car go on a full charge?

When you look at new electric car ranges, you'll find that many models can reach over 300 miles on a single charge. The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning range offers up to 320 miles and can tow up to 10,000 pounds when properly equipped, and the 2022 Mustang Mach-E range can reach up to 314 miles. Discover auto loan and lease options at Star Ford to get the keys to an EV that's perfect for you.

How long does it take to charge an electric car at home?

EV charging can vary by vehicle and outlet, but typically most electric cars can be fully charged overnight from home. With the Ford Mobile Power Cord, there's more flexibility in charging from a standard 120V outlet. For fast charging, you can plug into a 240V outlet. The new Mach-E can charge up to 20 miles per charging hour using a 240V outlet.

How long does an electric car last before recharging?

Speed and road conditions can affect how long an EV will operate before needing to recharge. If you're curious about the hybrid models that are available, you'll be able to enjoy greater fuel efficiency while still having the flexibility of a gas engine. However, new Ford EVs are designed to drive for hundreds of miles at a time, making these great options for even lengthy road trips across California and beyond.
