How It Works?

The Ford Mobile Power Cord charger linked through a power adaptor delivers Level 2 charging to a vehicle when it is connected to the 7.2- or 9.6-kW Pro Power Onboard the aforementioned models are equipped with.

Thanks to this vehicle-to-vehicle delivery of charge, an extended-range RWD Mustang Mach-E receives additional 20 miles per changing hour, an F-150 Lightning receives 13 mi/hour, and this figure is 10 mi/hour for a Ford E-Transit low-roof cargo van.

The 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid pickup has already got the 7.2-kW Pro Power Onboard generator which can be used to power the Ford Mobile Power Cord, tools and accessories.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning will debut the 9.6-kW Pro Power Onboard in the spring of 2022.

Ford says that on occasion customers can even use the F-150 Lightning to power their homes up to 3 days with the help of Ford Intelligent Backup Power.

Moreover, Ford has one more useful feature – a Mega Power Frunk offering many power outlets and up to 14 cubic feet of lockable storage.
