Yeah in fact, I'd find it patently stupid of Ford to design a totally different PCB for USA vs. abroad since they would have to get FCC/CE/ETSI certification for each model (in case one gets traded abroad with its stock charger, and the user ends up trying to use an uncertified charger)...


Is a "Convenience Cord" included for European vehicles?


Don't they already plug into 230V systems with cords like this?

I would "ASSume" that they include a "Convenience Cord", but it's certainly possible they leave it out.


I haven't looked too close, but the link you provided seems to be to plug your car into a different plug-type EVSE.


I don't see any indication those cords are EVSE's themselves.  They look to just be adapters for the different EVSE connector types in Europe.


Yes, if you look at the Ford section:



You can see they offer a home charging station and then the "Mobile Charger" which would be the same thing as the "Convenience Cord"(which are all just EVSE's).  Then they also sell the  "Charging Cables" you linked to which as near as I can tell would allow you to do things like go to France and plug into a public EVSE there with a different connector.
