In preparation for the launch of its new bZ4X electric SUV later this year, Toyota has announced that it will work with ChargePoint (NYSE: CHPT) to offer customers home and public EV charging solutions.
For home charging, bZ4X customers will have the option to purchase a ChargePoint Home Flex Level 2 charger from participating Toyota dealerships or directly from ChargePoint. The Home Flex is ENERGY STAR-certified and-WiFi enabled, can be installed indoors or out, and comes with a 23-foot charging cable.
Qmerit has been selected to help guide bZ4X customers through the process of installing a home charger.
Toyota will use ChargePoint’s public charging APIs in order to enable drivers to find, use and pay for public charging via the Toyota App.
“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, VP of EV Charging Solutions at Toyota.
“This arrangement combines Toyota’s market leadership in technology and quality with ChargePoint’s leadership in delivering accessible charging solutions. Together with Toyota, we want to provide a high-quality charging experience for new bZ4X drivers at home and on the road,” said Pasquale Romano, CEO of ChargePoint.
