Toyota and Enel X Way have announced a new partnership that allows electric and plug-in hybrid Toyota and Lexus drivers to use Enel X Way’s advanced charging solutions and technologies. The partnership aims to promote the development of electric mobility in Italy by providing convenient charging services.
As part of the partnership, the 7.4 kW WayBox Procellular charging solution will be added to the accessory range of Toyota and Lexus vehicles. This home charging station comes with a three-year warranty for customers and can be connected to the Enel X Way charging infrastructure for remote assistance through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or a SIM card. Charging operations can be easily managed through the Enel X Way JuicePass app.
Additionally, Toyota and Lexus customers will have the option to purchase the JuicePack Street, a 1,385 kWh voucher for public vehicle charging, from participating dealers. The voucher, which is valid for 12 months, includes a charging station booking service and a charging card, which will be sent to the customer’s home address. It can be used at Enel X Way and other charging stations that are interoperable with the Enel X Way JuicePass app.
“The agreement with Toyota proves just how important it is to build synergies with leading automotive manufacturers in order to provide customers with high-tech charging solutions that are easy to use for everyday commuting,” says Federico Caleno, CEO of Enel X Way Italia. “This partnership allows us to meet the growing demand for personal home charging systems, which are a key part of our core business along with our daily commitment to make Italy’s public charging network, which currently comprises 17,000 Enel X Way charging points, even more widespread and efficient.”
“We are extremely pleased to have partnered with Enel X Way, which will join us on our journey towards increasingly sustainable mobility,” says Luigi Ksawery Luca’, CEO at Toyota Motor Italia. “In order to achieve the goals set by the EU, it is becoming imperative for all key stakeholders to cooperate, not only institutions, but also all operators in the mobility and energy sector, and even individual citizens. In this respect, by working together with Enel X Way, we will be able to provide our customers with comprehensive solutions that can be used with peace of mind, which will therefore help to accelerate the transition to electric mobility.”
