Ford Motor Canada and Best Buy partnered to offer owners of Focus electric vehicle with a home charging station.
The company wants to provide 240-volt home charging station for Focus EV and the upcoming plug-ins in Canada. The station features 32-amp charging capability and will charge the car in three to four hours. Best Buy will supply the charging station and offer full consultation and installation services through Geek Squad and third-party licensed electrical contractors.
“Our partnership with Ford is the first step towards being able to offer our customers in-home energy management services which will help Canadians reduce the cost of electricity throughout their homes, ” declared Best Buy Martin merchandising exclusive brands and new business director Caines.
The owners of Focus Electric can go to their Ford dealer or contact Best Buy to set up an in-home consultation and installation with Geek Squad as a single point of contact. A Geek Squad Agent will conduct a quick electrical survey to ensure the residence can support the 240-volt charging station.
“With fast charge times, low pricing and a user-friendly design, the 240-volt home charge station sets a new standard in the electric vehicle ownership experience,” said Steve Ross, product marketing manager of sustainability and electrification, Ford Canada.
