Innovation from the darling of the American Auto Industry leverages Best Buy's "Geek Squad"...
Ford is working with consumer electronics leader Best Buy to offer a 240-volt home charging station for the company's all-new Ford Focus Electric battery electric vehicle and future electric vehicles in the United States. Best Buy intends to sell the charging station and offer complete consultation and installation services through its Geek Squad subsidiary and third-party licensed electrical contractors.
This is yet another example of Ford's problem solving prowess via unique partnerships with outside enterprises. Similar to their partnership with Microsoft for SYNC, their partnership with Best Buy looks to solve for one of the infrastructure challenges that critics of electric cars have repeatedly cited.
