Ford adds PlugShare data to MyFord Mobile

Compatible with Android and Apple smartphones, the app allows users to control and check charging times, pre-set cabin temperatures and be tutored on efficient driving styles. By linking with PlugShare.com, it will now not only be able to show which units are free, but display these alongside points of interest to help drivers find businesses with charging points nearby.
Bill Frykman, Ford's business and product development manager, said: ‘When we launched the MyFord Mobile app and portal for the Focus Electric last year, it was the most advanced remote management app of its kind in the industry. We’re now expanding availability of the system to drivers of our new plug-in hybrids and offering some unique features specifically tailored to these long-range vehicles.’
Forrest North, CEO of Xatori, maker of PlugShare, added: ‘By giving drivers a clear view of the reality of charging, PlugShare and Ford are showing more and more drivers that now is a great time to start driving on electricity.’
