Enel X Way, the e-mobility division of Italy’s biggest utility Enel, has agreed on a partnership with Japanese automotive giant Toyota to make available its domestic and street charging services to Toyota and Lexus drivers, the two companies said in a joint statement. The new partnership “means that anyone driving an electric or plug-in hybrid Toyota or Lexus will be able to use Enel X Way’s advanced solutions and technologies to charge their vehicle,” the companies said.
Toyota and Lexus customers will be offered a home charging station that can be controlled remotely via mobile app, and the chance to buy vouchers to use Enel X street charging points, the statement added.
“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,” Enel X Way Italia CEO Caleno said.
“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,” said Luca, CEO of 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.”
