Lincoln's electrical terminals, in the form of the brand's badge
We know that Ford is about to market an electric SUV based on the design of the Ford Mustang, and unsurprisingly, its luxury division will also inherit its own model. In fact, electrification has already started at Lincoln with the all-new plug-in hybrid Aviator. The next Nautilus will also have its & nbsp; PHEV variant. In order to prepare for this new reality, Lincoln is setting up its first charging stations.
These terminals, which proudly bear the shape of the manufacturer's emblem, are only inaugurated at certain Lincoln dealerships in the United States. The automaker, however, plans to expand the service to Canada in the near future, where owners of Lincoln electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles can refuel for free.
In terms of public and residential infrastructure, we know that Ford will partner with Volkswagen’s Electrify Canada charging stations project. Lincoln plans to offer its own charging station to install at home, but nothing has been revealed yet.
Regarding the public terminal taking the form of the Lincoln logo, some media specializing in transportation electrification, such as Electrek, accused the brand of having copied the design of Tesla Supercharger terminals because of its central opening. But when you take the time to compare them well, it is quite apparent that the opening stands out.
While the opening of the Tesla terminal takes the form of a magnet, that of Lincoln effectively illustrates a badge that has existed for over 100 years.
