Dec. 9, 2022—Ford has asked dealers to sign onto its electric vehicle investment and transition program, called Ford e. Around two-thirds of the 3,000 dealers have jumped on board in some way, reports Electrek.

There are a few tiers under the Model e program. The first, requiring a $500,000 investment, includes EV certifications and training around repair and maintenance, as well as the addition of a DC fast charger. The next tier, requiring up to $1.2 million, includes more chargers, demo units, and some other perks.

Electrek reports that 1,659 dealers chose the higher "certified elite" tier, while 261 chose the base tier. Those who opted not to join Ford e may not have EVs to sell before at least 2027.
