How to Set Up or Change Your Ford® Electric Vehicle Charging Schedule

Set up scheduled charging in the SYNC 4 system or in 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.

To view your charge settings:

  1. On your SYNC screen, press Applications
