First post on this site, but I am gearing up to submit my Mach E First Edition order today and am now looking to start planning out how to handle some of the annual road trips that I take with my family. There seem to be no EA chargers within 150 miles or so of an area of Wisconsin that we make a couple trips to annually. Does anyone know if EA or Ford have a way to submit requests for charger locations to be considered?
I believe there are ways to submit suggestions but I also recommend using “A Better Route Planner” and run your various scenarios. That’s what I did and sort of influenced my decision to go with Tesla for now and wait and see how Electrify America stands by 2022 since I am interested in the Mach E, Polestar 2, XC40 Recharge and VW ID4 as possible follow-ups to my Tesla Model 3. I can say having superchargers along the routes and locations I visit has been a positive experience and has diminished my range anxiety. But the Delmarva Peninsula and Cape Cod are also EA deserts.

Green Bay would work out pretty well! Sure, I'd love one smack in the middle of Door County, too, but Green Bay would give me a great boost between Milwaukee and Door County on my way up from Chicago. And Wausau would be great for when I head up to Eagle River. I'll gladly contact EA and pile on to your requests. :)

That Better Route Planner site is SUPER helpful! Thank you for sharing it! It looks like at least one of the trips that I am concerned about should be doable without going too far out of my way.

Let us all know and lots of us will probably help pile on. Figure out where we go online and where to request the charger! I've never been to Door County but I hear it's pretty. However, to drive there I'd need a charger.

According to Plugshare there are 128 CCS locations in Washington State (a rectangular version of the state on my screen). Of those locations, 31 of them are by Electrify America. On that same zoom level, there are 25 Tesla supercharger locations in Washington.
Winner MME.
