Qmerit, Ford partner on EV home charging for Mustang Mach-E

Ford's Mustang Mach-E customers can choose to add a Ford Connected Charge Station to their orders and finance them with the vehicle.

Qmerit has teamed up with Ford Motor Company for home EV charger station installations for its currently available all-electric vehicles. Qmerit will provide Ford’s Mustang Mach-E customers with its Charge@Home services for installing and supporting EV charger stations at individual homes and multi-family residences.

Ford is investing more than $30 billion in fully electric vehicles globally through 2025 and, by 2030, expects 40-50% of its global vehicle volume to be fully electric. The company’s current retail EV lineup includes the Mustang Mach-E and GT derivatives, to which Qmerit is a retail installation provider. The automaker is putting strong emphasis on EV charging infrastructure through North America’s largest public charging network, the Blue Oval Charge Network, and is providing customers with solutions for at-home charging as well.

Ford’s Mustang Mach-E customers can choose to add a Ford Connected Charge Station to their orders and finance them with the vehicle. They can also order directly through their dealer of choice before or after the purchase. Afterward, they can visit Qmerit to find certified installers in their area. The installation service extends to Mustang Mach-E customers who need an upgrade to a 240V outlet for their Ford Mobile Chargers.

The Ford Mobile Charger comes standard with two connectors with different charging speeds: The first can plug into any 120V outlet in a standard home or garage. It has an average range of three miles per charging hour. The second connects to 240V/30A NEMA 14-50 outlets and provides an average of 20 miles per charging hour. However, outlets like this typically require installation from a licensed electrician.

Ford Connected Charge Station is offered as an additional purchase to the Mustang Mach-E. These 240V/48A hard-wired stations provide an estimated average of 28 miles per charging hour. The stations also come with intelligent features, such as charge time scheduling, energy tracking and connectivity to customer devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
