[network] One Network to Rule Them All: Japan Launches Nippon Charge Service for Electric Cars

As our ill-fated trip across Europe last week proved, driving electric cars long distance is only possible if there’s a reliable charging network in place to provide those much-needed electrons to refuel your car’s limited-range battery pack. In fact, with the exception of Tesla’s worldwide supercharger network — which is owned and operated by Tesla Motors [NASDAQ:TSLA] directly — charging any other electric car on the move requires owners to carry an assortment of RFID smart access cards and an expectation that charging won’t be as simple as it should be.

The new charging service in Japan aims to make charging your electric car anywhere much easier.
In the past, we’ve seen several efforts from various quarters to simplify electric car charging networks with roaming agreements and pay-as-you-go operation, but now Japan’s largest automakers are clubbing together to support electric vehicles in an unprecedented way.
