  • Ford F-150 Lightning: This iconic truck offers two battery options: the Standard-Range with a 230-mile EPA-estimated range and the Extended-Range boasting an impressive 320 miles. Both utilize lithium-ion phosphate (LFP) batteries known for their durability and longevity. Industry estimates suggest EV batteries can last up to 10-15 years or 150,000-200,000 miles with proper care.
  • Ford Mustang Mach-E: This stylish SUV has two battery options: the Standard-Range with a 224-250-mile range and the Extended-Range offering 277-312 miles.

At Twin State Ford, we know the range isn't everything. We offer a variety of Ford-approved options to fit your needs and budget. Level 2 chargers significantly boost charging speed compared to traditional outlets, filling your battery much faster. Many models even allow for smart features like scheduling charging during off-peak hours for optimized cost savings.

You'll find charging stations near your destination or your planned route through our partnership with leading networks and our user-friendly mobile app. Whether it's a quick top-up at a shopping mall or a full charge during a longer journey, you'll always be connected.

Different stations offer different charging speeds and protocols.

Many stations also offer multiple connectors to accommodate various EV models. Remember, charging times can vary depending on your vehicle's battery size and the station's power output.

How Do EVs Work

EV Service and Maintenance

Trust the Twin State Ford service team to care for your EV with routine service and maintenance for a smooth and safe drive. Want to know how EVs work? Let's start by clarifying the terms. Service refers to addressing unexpected repairs or issues, while maintenance covers routine upkeep to ensure optimal performance and longevity. 

EV Service: Thankfully, EVs require significantly less service compared to gas-powered vehicles. They have fewer moving parts, resulting in fewer potential failure points. However, periodic tire pressure, brakes, and suspension inspections are still crucial. Additionally, software updates might be needed occasionally to optimize performance and functionality. 

EV Maintenance: When it comes to maintenance, EVs shine again! Say goodbye to oil changes and spark plug replacements. Your 2024 Ford EV, whether it's the Mustang Mach-E or F-150 Lightning, requires minimal scheduled maintenance. Like any vehicle, focus on routine checks like wiper blades, cabin air filters, and brake fluid levels. 

Taking Care of Your EV: While maintenance needs are minimal, remember that proactive care is still essential. Here are some key tips:

  • Charging: Use the recommended charging methods and avoid constantly running your battery down to zero.
  • Climate: Extreme temperatures can impact the range. Park in moderate climates whenever possible.
  • Driving habits: Avoid aggressive acceleration and braking to maximize range and battery health.

At Twin State Ford, we offer dedicated service bays equipped for your EV's specific needs. Our certified technicians are trained to handle everything from routine maintenance to advanced diagnostics, ensuring your EV stays in top shape. We also offer convenient scheduling and comfortable waiting areas to make your service experience seamless. Contact a service team member of Twin State Ford today to learn more. 

EV Affordability

Explore your options, from savings that create a hassle-free purchasing experience to tax incentives that can qualify you for a tax credit when you make the switch to an EV. While filling your tank can feel like a never-ending drain, charging your Ford EV at home costs a fraction of the price. Imagine filling your "tank" for just a few dollars and enjoying hundreds of miles of range. 

Now, factor in maintenance. EVs have fewer moving parts, reducing wear and tear and requiring less frequent servicing than gas-powered vehicles. That translates to fewer trips to the shop and lighter repair bills. 

But the savings don't stop there! The US government offers a generous federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for qualifying electric vehicles, including several 2024 Ford models like the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning. This hefty credit instantly reduces your purchase price, making your dream EV even more accessible. 

Let's illustrate with an example: Say you're considering the 2024 Mustang Mach-E. After applying for the tax credit, its effective price could be significantly lower than a gas-powered SUV. Add fuel and maintenance savings over the years, and your electric choice looks even more attractive. 

At Twin State Ford, we understand financing and are to help you secure the best deals. We offer competitive financing options tailored to your needs, making your transition to an EV smooth and affordable. 

Switching To An EV

The Environmental Benefits of Owning a Ford EV

With every Ford vehicle leaving our lot, we strive to offer options that empower you to contribute to a healthier planet. Enter the world of Ford EVs – a choice that doesn't just impact your driving experience but the very air we breathe. 

Lower Emissions: Unlike gas-powered vehicles, Ford EVs like the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning produce zero tailpipe emissions. This translates to cleaner air in your community, reducing greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change, and a tangible step towards a more sustainable future. 

The benefits extend beyond immediate emissions. With EVs, there's no oil extraction, refining, or transportation, each stage carrying its environmental footprint. Choosing an EV minimizes your contribution to these processes, protecting precious natural resources and ecosystems. 

Energy Efficiency: Electric motors are inherently more efficient than their gasoline counterparts. This translates to less energy used per mile driven, reducing the overall demand for electricity and the strain on power plants. As renewable energy sources continue to grow, choosing an EV ensures an ever-decreasing environmental impact over its lifespan. 

Owning an EV is a statement about your values. Investing in a cleaner future is a conscious choice that sets a positive example for your community and inspires others to consider sustainable alternatives.
