Ford to help F-150 Lightning owners save on electricity costs with new V2H partnership. Ford aims to help F-150 Lightning owners save on monthly electricity costs with a new vehicle-to-home (V2H) partnership. The “first-of-its-kind collaboration” will use the Lightning’s powerful battery with smart thermostat tech to unlock new savings.


Free charge points are mostly found at big supermarkets. According to Zap-Map (the app we have included), there are about 5,000 free charge points in the UK. To find them, it allows you to filter by payment method, including free-to-use ones.

Many free EV charge points are at supermarkets (about a quarter), though you can find them at a range of locations, including public and retail car parks, car dealership forecourts, and at hotels and B&Bs, among others.

Most free chargers are 'fast' 7 kilowatt (kW) connections – so if you're shopping for an hour or so you'd get about £2 worth of free juice for your car, or about 30 miles.


Today on the InsideEVs Podcast, we'll be talking about the start of Tesla Cybertruck deliveries, and the Tesla Cybertruck Delivery Event.
