Ford fostering electric vehicle charging innovation

Techstination feature for Friday, November 5, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        How do you bring electric vehicles to all of the fleets out there?    Ford is trying to tackle some of the issues…like those surrounding charging…with a new Mobility Studio partnership with  Newlab.   It will be based at Ford’s Michigan Central innovation effort where Roshni Shokar leads startup and entrepreneur engagement.  And the announcement by Hertz that it is purchasing 100 thousand electric vehicles is a wake up call..

“It’s a huge shift and I mean fleets converting to EVs is really how we’re going to get to scale.   That’s how we’re going to start to see a larger quantity of vehicles moving from gas power to EVs.”

And the hope is some of the start-ups Ford will be working with will help solve some of the difficult issues…like providing enough clean energy to charge all of the new EVs.
