For buyers of new electric vehicles, Ford Motor Co. has released a handy set of social rules for charging your car without making a nuisance of yourself. Ford’s list of do’s and dont’s comes in response to customer demand—or more precisely, the concerns of one important customer: Todd Woody, a tech writer for Forbes magazine and driver of a Ford Focus Electric.
Woody warned readers to “expect more parking lot rage as drivers vie for the few available public electric vehicle charging spots.” Many public electric car charging stations are free, so that adds to the appeal of using public EV chargers.
Ford responded with a colorful chart of etiquette tips (see below). What would you add or remove to the suggestions below?
