Toyota ink refueling agreement before the release of the EV in the US

Prior to the release of the 2023 bZ4X battery-powered electric SUV in the U.S. later this year, Toyota Motor North America said it would work with ChargePoint, an electric car charger network, to offer customers home and public charger products.

“We want to instill a sense of confidence in our bZ4X customers by providing a variety of charging options, both at home and abroad, to meet each customer’s unique charging needs and preferences,” said Christopher Young, Vice President of EV Charging Solutions at Toyota.

“The ChargePoint Home Charger and Public Charger Network will further enhance our customers’ bZ4X ownership experience.”

For home charging, customers will be able to purchase ChargePoint Home Flex Level 2 Charger from participating Toyota dealers or directly from ChargePoint online. The charger is Energy Star certified and has Wi-Fi enabled, can be installed indoors or outdoors, comes with a 23-foot charger cable to support a variety of parking configurations, and can charge electric vehicles nine times faster than a standard compartment.

The TNA said the home charger can charge the bZ4X at 25 miles per hour and fully charge the battery when turned on at night.

Qmerit will assist owners in the process of finding a certified electric charger installer, offer an initial free quote, and additional services to help them complete the installation.

“Qmerit will be happy to offer its residential installation services to bZ4X customers, as more than 80% of L2 charging in the US takes place at home,” said Tracy Price, Qmerit CEO.

ChargePoint also offers a wide public network of Level 2 and 3 (DC Fast) chargers, including roaming partner stations in North America. The agreement with Toyota means that bZ4X drivers can access more than 80% of their charging points in North America.

Using ChargePoint Public Charging allows Toyota to offer bZ4X owners the ability to quickly find, use, and pay for recharging through the app.
