OREANDA-NEWS. Ford Motor Company is highlighting its commitment to plug-in electric vehicles by expanding efforts to provide more workplace charging stations to employees across the United States and Canada.

The automaker began installing charging stations in September 2014, and currently has 145 units available for employee use at 43 Ford offices and manufacturing facilities in 6 states and Canada. There are plans to install 20 more in the near future, with ongoing discussions to increase the number in the long term.

Cynthia Williams, Ford associate director, environmental and regulatory planning, will join California Gov. Jerry Brown and dozens of Fortune 500 executives in Los Angeles this week for Drive the Dream 2015. The annual event is hosted by the California Plug-In Electric Vehicle Collaborative – a public-private organization that works to ensure a strong, enduring transition to plug-in electric vehicle use. Williams will share insights on the plug-in electric vehicle market, purchase incentives and on developing a broader charging station network.
