I have not been able to tell the rate at which the Truck is charging and can't seem to find a screen that shows it either. I am missing it? I tried in the truck and on Ford Pass
That would really just be an average charge rate. Seeing the charge rate at all points on the curve would be much more helpful.theres not a way. You will need to do the math yourself. While charging, you can click on the banner of the bottom of the ford pass app, and it will give total kW received and total time. Divide the kW delivered by the total time. I hope they add that in the future.
I am new to this all but agree Ford need a site for us to all vote on features to addI know I am spoiled by more "mature" EVs, but damn... that is pretty basic info to not have access to.
I would like to think that this is something that OTA updates will be able to address down the line.
It might drive them nuts, but they would have to if Tesla allows them to. I think the bigger question is if Tesla would allow them to add to Blue Oval Charging Network. They may want all these Ford folks to have to create Tesla accounts.Jim Farley is a big fan of Tesla (Not wishing to trigger anybody lol), and has made it clear that he is using much of what they do as a pattern for Ford's future. He is smart in doing this, and it bodes well for Ford's products. In my observation, Ford is not taking baby steps; they are taking leaps in the right direction. The above call for a way for us to "vote" on features is actually really good, again, it is one thing Tesla has done.
Back to Tesla haters for a moment. Do you think we will see them connected to Tesla's clearly superior charging network when it opens up? Or will being tethered to a pedestal with a big red T on it be just too much for them?
Yes, Tesla is planning to provide access to the SCs though the app, so non-Tesla drivers will have to run the app to use the system. It is cause for some glee on the Tesla forums.It might drive them nuts, but they would have to if Tesla allows them to.

Yes, I have seen the data captured that way by some testers, but that is kind of an area for us geeks. Such a basic data point should be prominently displayed for the average user, and I am sure it will. We are in the early stages with this vehicle.I haven’t tried it yet but you could probably use C the Car Scan app and an OBDII dongle.
I would really like to have a "geek screen" with all of these sorts of details. Unfortunately, we still don't have charging rate on the Mach E either and it's been out for a year and a half.Yes, I have seen the data captured that way by some testers, but that is kind of an area for us geeks.

I pretty much know at home it is on these destination locations that I was wonderingThis is completely out of the way options but
You could always get an energy meter kit for your house. It can show you graphs on when and how much power you pull.
Or like someone else mentioned take off the dead front from your main panel and use an electrical volt meter and see how much power the charger is pulling when it's charging.
