Ford announced it acquired Electriphi, a California-based software company that specializes in charging management and monitoring electric vehicle fleets. Electriphi will be rolled into a new global Ford business called Ford Pro, which is devoted to enhancing the experience of the growing number of commercial customers who are adding electric vehicles to their fleets.
With the F-150 Lightning Pro and E-Transit cargo van already in Ford’s production pipeline, enhancing its EV commercial business was the obvious next step for Ford to take. Ford Pro expects that by 2030, the software that Electriphi developed will help it earn more than $1 billion in revenue from charging alone. A driving force will be the evolution of the depot charging industry, which Ford Pro estimates will grow to more than 600,000 full-size trucks and vans in the coming decade.
Ford Pro CEO Ted Cannis, said, “With Electriphi’s existing advanced technology IP in the Ford Pro electric vehicles and services portfolio, we will enhance the experience for commercial customers and be a single-source solution for fleet-depot charging.”
