Toyota ready to expand number of EV chargers in Japan – AutoblogGreen

Toyota is looking to more than double the size of the charging-station program it launched in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture last year. And, at about a buck a charge, plug-in vehicle owners will likely to be more than happy to be the guinea pigs.

Toyota originally launched a program involving the installation of 32 charging stations in Aichi Prefecture in 2012 and will add another 40 between November 15 and March 15, 2014. The Japanese automaker is working with four city governments – Gamagori City, Toyohashi City, Nishio City, Kota Town – as well as more than a dozen private companies.

While many of the existing stations are at retail locations, Toyota is eying hotels and tourist attractions for additional charging spots. And while the tourist-site chargers won’t be freebies, Toyota is asking just 100 yen ($1.02) per charge, so its goal of discovering “user-friendly authentication methods” for the stations is certainly realistic.
