Owning A Ford Electric Vehicle In Trail, BC


Taking the plunge into the electric vehicle market can seem daunting. But our team at AM Ford Sales is here to guide you through what it’s like to buy, drive, and maintain a Ford EV in Trail, British Columbia, as well explaining as the many benefits of owning one.

Driving A Ford EV

Driving an all-electric Ford vehicle is much like driving a gas-powered version, but you simply don’t have to stop at the gas station as often. Many new Ford EVs, like the F-150 Lightning, offer robust power that can tackle the toughest jobs and take on adventurous weekend excursions in the mountains or by the lake. In fact, torque output is high and immediate in a performance-oriented EV like the hard-working F-150 Lightning.

Driving range can reach up to over 500 km on a single charge for some Ford EVs, removing any anxiety you may have about running out of power. Not only that, but there are more than 84,000 public chargers across North America and quite a few around Trail’s surrounding areas.

How To Maintain An Electric Ford Vehicle

Keeping a Ford EV in good working order is simple. Electric vehicles often require less maintenance than their gas-powered counterparts. You’ll still need to stay on top of things like tires, alignment, cabin filters, and various fluids.

Electric batteries require very little maintenance compared to gas engines that rely on fluids to lubricate moving machinery. Make sure you refrain from completely depleting the battery all the time, though. Even if your Ford EV does require service, our knowledgeable staff at AM Ford Sales is ready to assist.

Benefits Of Driving An EV

Driving a Ford EV provides you with various benefits, including creating zero emissions and helping the environment. In addition, there are federal tax credits that you could receive on certain Ford plug-in hybrid EVs (PHEVs) as well as all-electric vehicles.[1] That’s potentially more money kept in your pocket toward other exciting stuff in your life!

Along with those incredible benefits, Ford EVs come with unique features that aren’t available on gas-powered options. Without the need for an engine, Ford EVs come with a front trunk or “frunk” that provides added cargo room. Seating space is often bigger, too, because the cabin has room to be expanded.

Mustang Mach-E

The Ford Mustang Mach-E takes everything you love about the Mustang sports car and launches it to another level in the form of an electric SUV. Size-wise, the Mustang Mach-E is comparable to the Ford Edge, but you’ll find that the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E offers more thrills behind the wheel and better fuel economy.

When you choose the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition, you’ll experience a whopping 480 horsepower compared to the Edge’s 335 hp. Not only that, but the Mustang Mach-E has a max driving range of 502 km, letting you go further without stopping.[2]

The Mustang Mach-E is undeniably modern and advanced, with exclusive features like a 15.5-inch touch-screen display with SYNC® 4A, a panoramic fixed-glass roof, and a 133-litre water-resistant frunk for storage.

F-150 Lightning

If you need a tough truck that can get the job done here in Trail, turn to the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning. This electric version of the F-150 offers more advanced tech and outstanding power compared to its gas-powered counterpart.

The 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning offers two powertrains, with the 131-kWh battery version delivering 580 horsepower and 10,000 pounds of maximum towing capacity.[3] In addition to its power, the F-150 Lightning comes with an enhanced Pro Power Onboard that can provide power for all kinds of tools and even your home if needed.

Inside the F-150 Lightning, you’ll find a standard 12-inch touch screen (compared to the F-150’s standard 8-inch screen) as well as a 12-inch digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, which comes at an added cost in the basic F-150.


Ford electrification extends to its commercial lineup in the form of the Ford E-Transit. The electric version of this utility van is estimated to have fewer maintenance costs than the gas-powered Transit van and is supported by the Ford Pro Network.[4]

Similar to the F-150 Lightning, the 2023 E-Transit can be equipped with Pro Power Onboard. You’ll also save time on jobs by avoiding the gas pump thanks to the E-Transit’s all-electric driving range of up to 202.8 km.[2]

The E-Transit also has a large 12-inch standard touch-screen display with SYNC® 4 infotainment features like voice-activated directions and available Alexa Built-In. Outside of tech, you’ll find many of the same useful features of the gas-powered Transit on the EV version like three roof height options and various cargo van configurations.
