of Infrastructure for PHVs, PHEVs and EVs in

TOKYO, Japan (July 29, — Toyota Motor Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. Motor Co.

Ltd. and Mitsubishi Corporation jointly announced agreement to work together to the installation of chargers for electric-powered (PHVs, PHEVs, EVs *1 ) and build a network service that more convenience to drivers in

The move is in recognition of the critical to swiftly develop charging facilities to promote the use of electric-powered Assisted by subsidies provided by the government, the four automakers bear part of the cost to the charging facilities. They also work together to a convenient and accessible charging in collaboration with companies are already providing charging in which each of the four already have a financial

At present, there are about quick chargers and just 3,000 *2 normal chargers in which is generally recognized to be In addition, the lack of sufficient among existing charging can be improved to offer better service to customers. The government subsidies for installation of charging totaling 100.5 billion yen as of its economic policy for fiscal 2013 to quickly develop the infrastructure and expand the use of electric-powered using alternative energy Currently, each prefecture in is drawing up a vision for the use of the subsidies.

With this strong the four automakers will together to install the chargers. each automaker assessed locations for charging facilities on own. Now, they agreed to work jointly the common understanding that the infrastructure has public value and enhancing it should be done during the limited period the subsidies are available.

Currently, are three charging methods for vehicles: basic charging, a car is charged at private homes or destination charging, where a car is at locations such as shopping DIY stores and family restaurants for the trip home; and en-route at locations including expressway service areas, roadside (michi no eki), gas stations, and stores. In both destination and charging, normal charging is for longer-duration stops, while charging is appropriate for shorter

In terms of utility, PHVs and would benefit from an charging network because it maximize these vehicles’ EV performance and combined fuel EVs, which provide an clean driving experience, harness a larger charging to extend their range longer trips.

Under the the four companies will a joint project to work on the actions:

1. Promote installation of in Japan

Studies are underway to increase the of normal chargers by 8,000 and chargers by 4,000. Normal could be installed in commercial (e.g. large shopping do-it-yourself stores and family which are destination charging or en-route charging spots longer duration stops highway service areas and stations) when a vehicle be charged. Quick chargers are to be at en-route charging spots for stops (e.g. highway areas, convenience stores and gas

2. Promote charger installation by bearing part of the installation and costs

3. Build a charging network which enables to use their PHVs, PHEVs and EVs conveniently

Collaboration among currently providing charging in which each automaker has invested (Japan Charge Co. Ltd. Charging Network llc and Toyota Media Service) lead to the creation of a more charging infrastructure network.

One example is enabling the car’s to charge his or her car at any charging spot the same card.

4. Work government agencies and local

Electric-powered vehicles are the driving of alternative energy initiatives. The aims to expand the use of the next-generation of vehicles and have PHVs, and EVs achieve a ratio of 15 to 20 percent of new car in 2020. The four automakers are to developing a charging infrastructure for a user-friendly infrastructure and to contribute to a society where electric-powered use can maximized.
