How do I use Plug & Charge with my Ford?

Plug & Charge is a feature that automatically recognizes your vehicle when you plug in at Electrify America® or Tesla Supercharger locations. Simply park at a participating charging station, plug in your vehicle, and your charging session will begin. Plug & Charge is enabled once you activate your BlueOval Charge Network access, and each charging session is automatically billed to the active card linked to your Ford account.
