Japanese Automakers Begin New Charging-Station Company

While some might say that the car industry is all about competition, this isn’t 100% true. Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and Mitsubishi are coming together, along with the Development Bank of Japan, to found Nippon Charge Service LLC, a new charging-station company in Japan.

Automakers have joined together to support a new car charging-station company.

The four Japanese carmakers helped the company get started by giving it 80 million yen, or $786,000 US. Nippon Charge Service LLC, which was establishes to promote plug-in vehicle charging installations across Japan, will help business owners incorporate charging stations at convenience stores, highway-side locales, and other locations to make it easier for plug-in vehicle drivers to charge their cars. The four automakers hope to triple the country’s current number of publicly accessible chargers to around 17,000 units.

While the chargers will exclusively charge plug-in vehicles from Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, and Nissan, Nippon Charge Service will follow in the footsteps of the EZ Charge system in the US, which uses a universally-accepted charging card to drivers who own these brands’ plug-ins. This will allow for the process to be significantly more seamless.
