On our first “out of town” trip to northern CA for the weekend and plug and charge has been working great at EA chargers! Hwy 395 is covered and spaced just about right. One station in Bridgeport CA was almost “full” even which was actually nice to see (although does make me a bit worried for the future as more EV come on line). A Kia Niro EV pulled in as we were about to pull out so 4 different EV’s at one station.

Plug and charge has been flawless for me since I got my car in March. We had a couple rough sessions with the wife’s car right after we picked it up in February.

Took our first trip to my daughter's house in Sycamore and Plug and Charge worked great (although I didn't need to charge with the amount of battery we had left on our standard range battery). I only charged a little bit just to try it. A receipt was e-mailed to me:

It would be nice for Ford to integrate the marvelous Plug & Charge feature that they developed based on J5118 protocol which is very similar to that of Tesla's .... BUT it would be even nicer that they had negotiated an agreement with Electrify America so that our Plug & Charge feature could be used in conjunction with our respective EA's preferred member discounted rates. If you go to EA's plan it does have option for "Premium Offers" and also ask for enrollment code. Is this for VW's initial two year free charge?
