You can schedule charging to take advantage of potentially lower-cost electricity rates and set an upper limit for charging your battery. Use of the scheduled charging is recommended as it gives you the option on when to charge and during non-peak hours when your vehicle is not in use.
Scheduled charging can be set up in the SYNC 4 system or in the FordPass app.
To view your charge settings:
- Access the application drawer on the touchscreen.

Charging Time Information
When charging, the start and estimated end time displays. When fast charging, the end time is replaced with the estimated time at 80% charge until the charge reaches 80%, then the estimated time at 100% charge is displayed.
When your vehicle is at a saved charging location and not plugged in, the start and end times display based on known charging infrastructure.
Charging time information is estimated. Certain conditions may result in longer charging times. See

Press the edit button to set preferred charge times for a specific charging location. Your vehicle prioritizes charging based on your preferred time settings. You can set two preferred charging time windows for weekdays and two for weekends. This feature allows you to take advantage of electric utility rate plans that offer lower pricing during certain times of day. Contact your utility company to see what plans are available.
Your vehicle will charge during your preferred time windows. Charging outside these windows only occurs when additional charging time is needed to reach the maximum charge level set for this location by your next departure time.
You can also access this feature using the FordPass app.
Departure and Comfort
Press the edit button for departure and comfort settings. Setting departure times allows you to control charging schedules and have the vehicle cabin heated or cooled while plugged in, so your vehicle is ready to drive when you are. By setting a departure time, your vehicle can use your charge time settings to minimize your electricity costs but still prioritize finishing charging before your scheduled departure. A calendar view allows you to program two departure times per day for each day of the week.
By using energy from your charging source while plugged in, your vehicle will need less energy from the high voltage battery for heating or cooling at the start of your drive. This helps maximize your driving range.
You can also access this feature using the FordPass app.
Additional information and settings are displayed on the charge settings screen once charging locations and departure and comfort have been set up.

This switch is visible when you have at least one departure time set. Use this switch to turn all departure times off and on. Switching off departure and comfort does not delete your settings, however, you must switch back on to re-enable them.
Charging Location Setup
Follow these steps to set time and charge level preferences for a charging location.
- Press the edit button for charging locations on the charge settings screen.
- Select an address from the list of recent charge locations. If previously saved charge locations are listed, then you must first select add new location. You can also edit settings for previously saved locations.
- Confirm that this is the location you want to save with the help of the map view. Edit the location name if desired and set a maximum charge level. Press next.
Charging will stop when your vehicle reaches the maximum charge level setting.
- Set preferred charging times for weekday and/or weekend by pressing and dragging along the 24 hour time wheel. You can set up to two blocks of time (charge windows). Press next once you have your desired time settings for weekday and weekend.
Selecting all or none of the 24 hours results in any time of day given equal priority for charging.
- The summary screen displays your settings for this location. Press save or press the left arrow to go back and change your settings. Whenever your vehicle is at a saved charging location, the charge settings screen displays the location name, and the charging times are based on your preferred time settings for that location plus the next departure time.
Reaching your max charge level by your next departure time is always the priority. When charge times are set, charging outside your preferred charging time windows could be necessary in order to finish by your next departure time. In this case, the vehicle will typically begin charging right away after plugging in.
Departure and Comfort Setup
Follow these steps to set departure times and cabin comfort level.
- Press the edit button for departure and comfort on the charge settings screen.
- Select a time for each day of the week you want your settings to apply. Select the hour and minutes as well as your desired comfort level. Your selected days/times now display your departure and comfort settings. Press Save to apply your settings. The next departure display on the charge settings screen will update appropriately.
Save your departure settings before selecting additional days/times. The process must be repeated in order to add additional unique departure times and comfort levels.
Cabin conditioning comfort level may vary depending on if you plug into a normal household outlet or a higher power outlet or charging station. The power available for conditioning is limited to the charging station power available. At low ambient temperatures and low charge power, a small amount of high voltage battery power in addition to the charging power could be used to heat the cabin.
The departure and comfort settings can also be accessed through the separate vehicle settings departure and comfort button. Press the edit button from this screen to begin the settings process outlined above.
