Coming soon. And an Energi specific feature.
 
 

The automaker today introduced SmartLink—a device that plugs into contemporary cars to add a high-tech twist to everyday driving.
Connect the accessory to the OBD (on-board diagnostics) II port below the steering wheel of any 2010–2016 Ford or Lincoln for access to smartphone-based remote start, lock, and unlock; a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capable of accepting up to eight devices; vehicle health and security alerts; and vehicle location assistance.

Developed in collaboration with Delphi Automotive and Verizon Telematics, SmartLink will be available this summer at Ford and Lincoln dealerships across the nation. An official release date was not revealed.
........
Focus Electric, Fusion Energi, and C-Max Energi owners, meanwhile, are the first to access new home-to-car capabilities via Ford and Amazon. Folks with an Echo, Echo Dot, or Amazon Tap can remote start, lock, or unlock doors, and get vehicle information from the comfort of their living room using voice commands.

Perhaps they're anticipating an end to that?

Doubtful. The Smartlink program is a new hardware device that would be redundant in our MFM equipped Enegris. (Although, make me wonder why  the Modem Recall updated to a 3G modem)

I hope they have better software engineers than the ones who work on our cars.
