Siemens Partnering with Ford on Charger for Ford F-150 Lightning EV

Feb. 9, 2022
Ford's all-electric F-150 truck is in the news again.

Siemens eMobility will be working with Ford on the Ford Charge Station Pro, a custom electric vehicle (EV) charger for the Ford F-150 Lightning. According to the press release, this charger is the first bidirectional-ready EV solution set for release at retail customer scale to receive certification under the newly expanded Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 9741, an important industry-wide benchmark that ensures products meet safety standards. The new charge station also features a peak power of 19.2kW, achieving the maximum power rating currently available for a Level 2 charge station.

“Together with Ford, Siemens is not only helping accelerate electric vehicle adoption in the residential space but is also empowering drivers to take more ownership of their energy future,” said John DeBoer, head of Siemens eMobility in North America, in the press release. “The technology behind this charger is helping make charging at home more sustainable, more reliable and more accessible.”

The Ford Charge Station Pro will enable Ford Intelligent Backup Power, a system that allows the Ford-150 Lightning to become an interactive part of the home and be used as a power generation source during outages, the first electric truck to do so. In the future, additional features will be made available with firmware updates to the charger that will help customers interact even further with the grid.

Siemens say it already has 75,000 EV chargers already deployed in the U.S. across all 50 states that range from in-home chargers and commercial depots to charging infrastructure systems that power electrified bus lines in several of the largest cities in the country.
