We are #DrivingonEnergi Ambassadors. All views expressed are that of our own.
Owners of a Ford Electric Vehicle (EV), whether it be a full EV or Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), should be utilizing MyFord Mobile. If they aren’t, then they are missing out on all the advantages it has to offer- especially in winter weather!
MyFord Mobile is a mobile phone app that is available for Android and Apple smartphones that allows you to interact with your vehicle, review your driving trends, and much more.

I know… I have a lot of favorite features!
That’s because I’ve found the MyFord Mobile app to be an extremely useful tool if you wan’t to get the best and fullest experience from your Ford electric vehicle. Most features I listed above, like remote start/stop, remote lock/unlock, and vehicle locator are great features that speak for themselves. Those features can be found on conventional gasoline engine vehicles.
Let’s take a closer look at the features that make MyFord Mobile stand apart from standard conventional engine apps:
Modify Charge Settings allows you to set GO Time schedules from your smartphone. Setting a Go Time schedule will automatically start your vehicle at the specified times and days. No need to worry about remembering to remotely start your vehicle at those routine times, MyFord Mobile will automatically start it and shut it off after 15 minutes if no one gets in and drives. You can also switch between Charge Now and Value Charge modes from this menu.
Key Personalization calculates your driving range based on your personal driving trends. You can set a “Key” for each driver so range will be calculated based on each person’s driving habits.
Trip & Charge Log shows you a record of each recent trip you’ve taken. It displays miles driven, Energy Used, EV Miles, Fuel Economy, Brake Score, and Driving Score.
Local Rankings weigh in on your success as an efficient EV driver. You can see where you stand among local Ford EV drivers in the following categories – Braking, Acceleration, ratio of EV only to Hybrid driving, and overall EV driving masters.
MyFord Mobile is an App that you could easily use everyday if you drive a Ford electric vehicle. It connects you with your vehicle in a way that helps you adapt to driving it more efficiently.
Most importantly, it helps users get the most out of their investment by empowering them to keep tabs on their vehicles like never before.
