Where can I charge my Lincoln Grand Touring while on the road?

With your Lincoln Grand Touring vehicle, you’ll have access to thousands of public charging stations across North America through the Lincoln Way® App. You can identify public charging stations with the required J1772 plug by using the J1772 filter in your query. DO NOTE: A DC CCS plug is used for Level 3 charging. Lincoln Grand Touring vehicles are not capable of using a Level 3 charger. Lincoln Grand Touring vehicles are capable of Level 1 and Level 2 charging with the J1772 plug.

What happens if I don’t charge my vehicle?

If you do not charge your vehicle, it will drive like a traditional hybrid, efficiently combining the gas engine and battery power without any impact on vehicle performance. In Preserve EV mode, the engine will charge the high voltage battery until it reaches 75% state of charge, if not already at that minimum level.  Once 75% state of charge is achieved it will drive like a traditional hybrid, combining gas engine and battery power while utilizing regenerative braking, which recovers energy from braking and stores it as battery power.

What type of charging stations does the Lincoln Way® App help me find?

The Lincoln Way App will help you find Level 2 and Level 3 chargers. A Level 2 charger plugs into a 240V outlet and delivers up to 80 amps. A Level 3 charger is hardwired into a DC circuit and delivers 100 amps or more. Lincoln does not currently offer any vehicles capable of using a Level 3 charger.  

What is Level 1 charging?

Level 1 charging uses a standard 120-volt outlet to charge your Lincoln Grand Touring vehicle. A dual-voltage charging cord capable of charging at Level 1 and Level 2 is included with the lease or purchase of a Lincoln Grand Touring vehicle. Plug your charging cord into the outlet and then into your vehicle’s charge port. A full charge is achieved overnight in about 10 to 11 hours.

What is Level 2 charging?

Level 2 charging uses a dedicated 240-volt outlet for faster charging, with a full charge achieved in 3–4 hours. At Level 2, at least a 20-amp circuit breaker and compatible wall outlet are required. (Note, a higher amp load may be advisable if you wish to support charging an all-electric vehicle in the future.) When you’re ready to charge, simply plug the dual-voltage charging cord into the Level 2 adapter and then plug the adapter into the wall outlet.
