How do I find upgraded Tesla Superchargers?

To locate an upgraded Tesla Supercharger for your Ford electric vehicle (EV), search using the FordPass®* App or Public Charging App on your vehicle's touchscreen. They will automatically filter by in-network, upgraded Tesla Superchargers, and let you know when your Fast Charging Adapter is needed. Using third-party search tools may not accurately filter incompatible stations.

Your Fast Charging Adapter allows charging at upgraded Tesla Superchargers. Look for Tesla Superchargers that have peak rates of 250+ kilowatts (kW) and an all-black charge cord and handle.
