Last one I had installed about 2 years ago was about that price - so wouldn’t surprise me if it was $800.
No, not really:
The wall boxes that are on offer in the UK average out at about £800. But the government give us (at the moment) £350 to help with install. This is in addition to the grant of £3000 to by a BEV
Haven't any prices yet for the Ford wallbox. Will let you know when we doI'm really curious if Ford UK and Ford EU have the Ford wall charger priced the same as here in the USA. I'm familiar with US wall chargers like Juicebox, Grizzl-E, and Clippercreek and it's clear that Ford USA has no intention of competing against them.
Is the Ford wall charger equally absurdly priced in Europe, especially compared to the competition?
Not much competition in 48A J1772 EVSEs at the moment.
ClipperCreek's doesn't have WiFi and is more expensive.
Tesla's is significantly less expensive ($500) but has proprietary connector.
Enel X JuiceBox is less expensive ($639) but based on reviews, reliability is questionable.
Do you need 48A charging? And if not: How much will Ford charge for additional mobile chargers (up to 32A)? ClipperCreek's prices come down quite a bit as max current is lowered. And more competition, from Grizzly-E, etc.
