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.

Control Charging Schedule on the SYNC 4 Display
To view or edit your charge settings:

  1. Press Applications on your vehicle's SYNC screen.
  2. Press Settings.
  3. Press Charge to view, edit, or set your charging preferences.

Control Charging Schedule in the FordPass App
To view or edit your charge settings:

  1. Press the Vehicle icon on the lower left side in the FordPass App.
  2. Press Manage EV.
  3. Press Manage Charging.
  4. Press Charge Settings.
