How do I set up or change my Ford Electric Vehicle charging schedule?

You can set up scheduled charging using SYNC®* 4 or the FordPass®** App. 

Scheduled charging is recommended because it maximizes your battery range by using energy from the charger (rather than your battery) to achieve your in-cabin comfort settings before you hit the road.

It also enables you to take advantage of potentially lower-cost electricity rates if you are using a Time of Use (TOU) utility plan and set an upper limit for charging your battery.
