That's the one that comes with the car right? Have they ever announced how much the other one would be? I'm assuming you can add that into the purchase price/financing if you choose to add it at purchase?

Yeah your dealer should be able to add the Connected Charge Station to the sale contract, but you'll want to double check with them.

The CCS cost seems to vary from $620-$1,250 or so, depending on dealer. They set their own prices. MSRP is $799. Installation is a separate cost and can be through Amazon home services or through your own electrician.

It would be nice if they included the dimensions of the Mobile Charger so that I can better plan where on the wall I want the electrical outlet placed.

It's not big. I would compare it to the Tesla Mobile Connecter.

Hello
I want to install the 240v wiring sooner than later so I am not caught without a charge capability. I am going to eventually put in the Ford charge station but I just want to start with a Nema 14-50 outlet. Can I put in the wiring for the 60A ford charger and for now install the 14-50 outlet and use the Ford Mobile charger that comes with the car. Sure I know it will be slower with the 14-50 outlet but will it work with the 60A wiring? Thanks for any comments.

Just remember there's a 30% (US) federal tax credit on any charger and/or installation cost (like a circuit/outlet) that expires at the end of 2020. So if your Mach-E won't come until 2021, you'd save money just buying and installing it now.

Yes, you can have a 50 Amp breaker and nema 14-50 outlet installed with the thicker than necessary (ie 60A capable) wiring.

And once you get the Ford Charger (or other 48A charger), you have the electrician remove the 14-50, add some additional wiring/conduit to hardwire the Ford Charger, and change out the breaker from 50A to 60A.

thanks, so you cannot plug the ford charger into a 60A 14-50 outlet, correct?

The 50 in 14-50 stands for 50 Amp, so no, you can't use it on a 60A circuit (60A breaker).

Correct. 14-50 refers to a 50 Amp outlet, fed by a 50A breaker. That is fine for the Ford mobile chargers that comes with the car. The Ford Connected Charge Station is a 48 Amp chargers that requires a 60A circuit and must be wired in directly.

Assuming the electrician doesn't balk at installing a 14-50 outlet onto a 60A circuit. Even though the wiring is (more than) sufficient, I don't know for sure if an electrician would be OK mis-matching an outlet like that. YMMV.

If they're OK doing that, and when it's time later to take out that outlet and hardwire the Ford Connected Charger directly, it would save a little to pre-plan the placement on the wall now. That way, the Ford Connected Charger could just be placed right over the top of the outlet box rather than needing new wiring and conduit (assuming the outlet box is flush-mount inside the wall).

Thank you now I can plan accordingly.
