EV Charging in the Wild

Though perhaps less ubiquitous than gasoline filling stations, electrical vehicle charging ports may be more common than you imagine. As of 2022, the United States housed more than 56,000 electrical vehicle charging stations, with additional stations coming online by the day.

Though these stations are distributed unevenly throughout the country, a quick glance at PlugShare reveals that you can find multiple charging stations in just about any zip code.

Of course, Ford EV owners rarely have to worry about where they’re going to charge their vehicles. The 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning boasts an EPA-estimated 320-mile range on a single charge; the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E will give you 312 miles on a single charge, and the 2024 Ford Maverick offers up to 500 miles of range.

And even if your trip exceeds your vehicle’s expected range, you can easily plan to refuel by using Ford’s Power My Trip application.
