Ford Trucks Allow for Vehicle-To-Vehicle Charging

Ford trucks allow vehicle to vehicle charging

“The automaker introduces the all-electric 2022 F-150 Lightning and the F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid and they bring a new meaning to topping off.”

With the increase in electric cars on the road, comes the need for a different kind of roadside assistance.  “Last May, Ford revealed its electric F-150, which possessed the power to charge an entire house during emergencies for three days on one charge with a feature called Ford Intelligent Backup Power.”

This technology could provide another option for tow trucks, or any business offering roadside assistance when a charging station isn’t nearby. The sharing of power can be between EVs built by Ford and other manufacturers. The one requirement is that the electric vehicle must use an SAE J1772 charge port. This port is a fairly common one used in many Chevy, Nissan, Prius, and even Tesla EV models.

As the auto industry moves more and more to EVs, we will see an increase in options to create new business and more options for the consumer. It’s a win/win and will surely also affect the product labeling side. From addition regulations to new SKUs, ensuring compliance and accuracy will continue to be a priority. Enterprise labeling solutions offer consistent, compliant options for global companies and Pragmatyxs has more than 25 years of experience implementing this type of solution for companies with global reach.
