Ford’s not only breaking sales records for their electric vehicles, they’re installing 200 more charging stations at nearly all of the company’s offices and plants in the U.S. and Canada.

"We know that a growing electrified vehicle infrastructure is key to making plug-in vehicles a viable option for more consumers," said Mike Tinskey, Ford global director of vehicle electrification and infrastructure, said in an interview with Reuters.

"We're trying to be on the leading edge of a trend to offer employees the ability to have a second charge so they would charge at night (at home) and then charge at work," he said in the interview. This would allow them to drive their cars' in electric mode nearly all the time, he noted.
