ChargePoint, a leading EV charging network, and Toyota Motor North America today announced agreements to enable convenient, accessible home and public EV charging for drivers of Toyota’s new battery electric bZ4X SUV.
Through the agreement, bZ4X drivers will have access to ChargePoint’s industry-leading home and public charging solutions. To ensure drivers can charge wherever they need it, bZ4X drivers will have access to the ChargePoint network of Level 2 and DC fast chargers across North America. The company’s extensive network of EV charging stations, and roaming partner stations, provides bZ4X drivers access to more than 80% of charging spots in North America.
“As esteemed automotive brands like Toyota continue to electrify transportation with new models of cars, trucks, SUVs, and fleet vehicles, ChargePoint continues to enable EV charging wherever drivers live, work, and play,” said Pasquale Romano, president and CEO of ChargePoint. “This agreement combines Toyota’s leadership in mobility with our leadership in providing charging everywhere drivers need it, including home and public charging, to provide a seamless, convenient charging experience for bZ4X drivers.”
For residential charging needs, drivers will have the option of purchasing a ChargePoint Home Flex Level 2 charger either from participating Toyota dealerships or directly through ChargePoint online. With the ChargePoint Home Flex connected charger, drivers can charge up to nine times faster than a standard outlet. Using the ChargePoint app, drivers can save money by scheduling charging times when energy is cheapest, track their charging, get charging reminders, and find places to charge through their smartphone.
“We want to instill a feeling of confidence in our bZ4X customers by providing a variety of charging options both at home and away to serve each customer’s unique charging needs and preferences,” said Christopher Yang, vice president of EV Charging Solutions, Toyota Motor North America. “The ChargePoint home charger and public charging network will further enhance our customers’ ownership experience of the bZ4X.”
